Mille Bornes

Winter weekends are a good reason to dust off games that’ve been sitting on the shelf too long. Cracked open Mille Bornes and gave it a spin. Honestly don’t think I’d played this French road racing card game for decades, though it was a staple with Canasta and Euchre growing up.

The game instructions would benefit from a fresh round of editing, but other than that? It holds up very well—a bit more frustrating and cut-throat than I remembered, but I’m not complaining. Worth revisiting way more often.
