- Title (alt.):
Travellers of Europe
A pictorial map of Europe used as a game board. Up to 5 players, playing as European travellers, start from designated cities in Africa or on the shore of the Mediterranean and return to the capital of their home country. A totum marked with N, E, S and W is spun and a player moves along the lines of latitude and longitude in the direction indicated. Players earn and lose tokens while traveling. The first player to reach their home capital wins the game.
