Description Edit | History

In 2010 Gibsons republished the game for the English-language market. Michael Gibson decided, with David Parlett's agreement, to break away from the traditional Ruritanian ethos (original game design based on Aesop's classic fable) and commissioned Simon Chadwick to produce a design more in keeping with the intellectual nature of what is essentially an abstract game with a light thematic dressing up. The outline sketches surrounding the actual race track depict famous English landmarks, including St Paul's Cathedral, the Blackpool Tower and The Angel of the North.
