Hi

I've noticed in images that the board seems to come in at least a couple of designs. To me, the one that is brightly coloured, cartoon style looks much more appealing compared to one that is quite austere with dull greys and blues. Is there a way of knowing which board version I'll be buying?

Thanks

I'm pretty sure you want an earlier Milton Bradley version rather than the more recent Ravensburger edition. The boxes are dramatically different.

This is the version I own; got it as a kid in the 80s. Beautiful color map as you describe.

Actually, Ravensburger DID print a colourful map edition in the 80's and 90's just like the Milton Bradley edition. I have it and it's beautiful.


I think as long as you stay away from the all blue coloured box cover, you should be good. That's the modern black/grey version board which I don't like either.
