Product Description

From the dawn of time, humans have attempted to explain the unexplainable, fashioning fanciful stories to make sense of the unknown. Ghosts, sea monsters, vampires, witches, unicorns, and more have always been the fodder of mythology. But lest you think this is a mere peculiarity of long-ago times, think aliens and UFOs, crop circles, and the Bermuda Triangle—modern man is no less susceptible to concocting curious interpretations of seemingly inexplicable phenomena. This quiz deck of 48 cards runs the gamut of odd events and legends throughout history—from Sasquatch to the Jersey Devil, haunted houses to puzzling diseases, the stones of Carnac to the enigmatic human-sized holes of Peru. So gather 'round and brace yourself for a trip through the unsettling, strange, and spooky recesses of the mysterious.


Sample Card Text

When was the Loch Ness monster first sighted? a. 1900s b. 1700s c. 1400s d. 600s

Answer d. The earliest recorded "sighting" of a large beast living in the chilly waters of Scotland’s Loch Ness dates from the 600s, although a rash of reports and sightings in 1933—followed by the publication of an iconic photograph—brought the allegedly fast-moving dragonlike creature to the world’s attention. Since then, reports of sightings (many later determined to be hoaxes) have been numerous, and several serious scientific searches to determine whether some sort of beast actually does live in the loch have been inconclusive, perpetuating the legend of Nessie and spawning a lucrative tourist industry in the area. Whether real or imagined, the Loch Ness monster has become synonymous with the lake itself and is familiar to countless people around the globe.
