Nintendo's humble beginnings

Did you know nintendo started out as a playing card company? Founded on September 23, 1889?

Ive known about this for years but i still find people who didnt know this.

It's true. They also experimented with a sort of taxi service, along with a few other things that I don't remember right now.
