A cross-country race through France sets the stage as you earn mileage points, overcome traffic hazards and sabotage your opponents! Play 1,000 miles of cards and you win the game. This special Collector's Edition of MILLE BORNES brings back the bright and charming artwork of the original 1962 cards. The 110 cards are poker-sized, the rules booklet is easy to read, and the score sheets are large and convenient--just like they were in the original game!
One of the best family games ever; I've been playing it for nearly 40 years. First to exactly 700 miles wins--but you can gamble and extend to 1000. But your opponents can play flat tires, accidents and other hazards to stop or slow you down--however, if you have a trump card when they do, you 'coup fourre' them, gain 400 points, and start moving again. The strategy is what to do when, with a bit of card counting along the way.
My then-9-year old daughter and I won the LA con--she's now 20 and still talks about the fun she had staying up until 3 am to win 5 single-elim rounds!
I used to play this game over 20 years ago. Found my old game (the 1962 version) in a closet one day and took it to the lake for the weekend with our 6 kids. Had to re-read the rules (it had been a while since I played). We started playing and are hooked! It's a blast. Am glad I found a site where I can order the collector's edition. Ours is getting worn out pretty quick because we play it so much. Thanks!
