There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

covers Game of Goose

Yeah, it's a roll & move (reminds me of Chutes & Ladders, but, not sure if they are the same game family?). But, from a historical and art perspective it's interesting, especially all the themes that have been applied, and the fact that it's still in production.

The author, though, needs some help with counting centuries... a 1587 game is 16th century, not 15th century. whistle

I'm disappointed that there isn't a trading in the Mediterranean version listed.
