Bogue, David. Round Games for All Parties: A Collection of the Greatest Variety of Family Amusements for Fireside or Pic-Nic. London, 1854.

From a compendium of games designed for “family amusements,” this game of “fancy intelligence” warns the players that they should not base their role-playing accusations on the real failings of the accused player before them on the “Stool of Repentance.” That kind of capricious playing, it cautioned, “leads to ill feeling in games of play as in all other social relations” – a lesson in good sportsmanship.
