Mille Bornes Collectors Edition
This is one of those classic card games that I'd always heard about and never played until recently. I love it!!! I hate that it took me so long to discover it for myself. Mille Bornes is French for "1,000 Milestones" or 1,000 miles. The game is set up like a road race - complete with distance cards, hazards, remedys (for the hazards) and safety cards. The goal is to be the first to play exactly 1,000 miles during a hand. No more, no less. It looked daunting to learn, but was really very simple. I highly recommend it. It can be played by 2, 3, 4 or 6 people. When played by 4 or 6, it's played in teams of 2. These cards feature the original 1962 artwork.
