Vintage Halloween BEISTLE 1920s game card BAT & SCYTHE MOON of Beistle Party Set

This is an odd card. Beistle issued these game cards as part of a set introduced in 1918 and made for only one or two seasons after. (This early, original party set was available in boxed and enveloped versions; both being exceedingly hard-to-find complete.) I have never before seen a game card with the egregious misspelling of the word adjective before. My initial theory: This card was originally part of an early printing run, perhaps one and only run, after which the spelling was corrected. Collectors, do me a favor and check your game cards from this early set. Do any of you have cards with this error? Write and let me know, please!
