Rules of the road.
via Codex 99

Codex 99 on the classic French card game Mille Bornes.

The graphics on the original (mass-produced) sets from the 60s and 70s are wonderful, but I’d never seen the original (hand-lettered!) sets from the 50s nor the very abstract “edition spécial” of 1960 that Codex 99 found. In a sure sign of the decline of Western civilization, the graphics of the latest US edition are so incredibly shitty that I literally threw the set out and went on eBay to get a proper set.
