Mille Bornes is a French version of an American card game that’s been around in one version or another for more than a hundred years. The illustrations shown here are from the French edition of 1960, adapted by Parker Brothers in 1962.
There’s a wonderful graphic history of the game here.
I used to play with exactly the same cards as a kid! Brings back good memories.
I had forgotten how good this game looked. Many hours of playing and contemplating these beautiful designs (instead of concentrating on the game).
See also France’s “Edition Spécial” version of the game.
The combination of the fonts and pictograms is really nice. Now and then.
I love this version of the Cards and the game very much. As my father did, I now play it with my son.
Here’s Stephy’s photo of the German version, “1000 Kilometer”. Thanks for sharing!
