    Description

    An unusual board game based on the "new Union Pacific Railroad".

    Objective: be the first reaching space 45. Roll the die and move forward. If you land on one of the special spaces follow instructions.

    The game board shows forty five beautifully executed views of places along the Union Pacific route, starting with "Rail road depot in New York" and ending in "San Francisco, the metropolis of California". Along the way, we have, among others, views of Pittsburgh, Omaha, "surprise by savage Indians", "wild heard of buffalloes", "railroad bridge over the Platte river," Cheyenne, Green River, Humboldt Valley, "Trukee" Valley, Sierra Nevada and Sacramento. The text is titled "Trip from New-York to San Francisco by the Union Pacific Rail Road. A new illustrated Travel-game with 45 stations, 1 dy, 12 cars and 12 numbers charts". The text is written in German and English and explains the game and the views. The cover of the game box (19x24) has a lovely colored litho view of two women joining hands across the American Continent, one representing America and the other Asia.

    (Trivia: It is very likely that this game was also sold by the on-train concessionaire ("news butchers") on the trans-continental trains of the Union Pacific, just as promotional picture booklets were sold showing the scenic views along the route -- in other words, a tourist's memento).
