I was recently looking though a book published in 1908 that is filled with guessing games. Each truly reminded me of a wonderful era gone by. In this game, the answer for each question is a single word that ends in “age.”  Since games of all kinds keep minds sharp…See how many you can guess!

  • A necessary attribute of a soldier? (Courage)
  • The age required at sea? (Tonnage)
