Item Sets

Item sets are an aggregation of items and put together different items in a group. For this course, there is a two groups (item sets):

  1. 2021 HIS221: Gaming the System - Historical Collection
  2. 2021 HIS221: Gaming the System - Contemporary Collection

Think that there are two collections: the one consists of items/objects that were created before 1899 and the other consists of items/objects that were created after 1900.

Choosing the right item set is crucial because, if you don't choose the right one, this Item won't show up on the website.
