    Description

    A board game using a map of Europe with a city-to-city path of spaces from Dover (#1) to London (#103).
    Players roll an 8-sided teetotum (because dice were heavily taxed at the time) and move along the path. Each space is a city in Europe, with a description given on the edge of the board. Some spaces have a favourable or unfavourable penalty (miss a turn, advance, go back etc).
    e.g.
    "63. Florence - The capital of Tuscany, the residence of the Grand duke.
    64. Rome. the Traveller, who is supposed to have indiscreetly kissed the Pope's toe, must be banished to Bergen, in Norway (No.11) and miss four turns."
    To win a layer must land exactly on London. If he overthrows, he returns to Paris. (#86) and tries again.
    Like the traditional Game of goose, there is a prison space (Algiers #68) and a death space (Scilly #89).
