Anyways, the board features a map of the world, on which players depart from the port of Marseille and have to travel through all of the French colonies, braving scorpions, rain storms and more, before returning across the Atlantic to Le Havre. If your reading knowledge of French, like mine, is just good enough to understand the rules to a kids game, download the board and play along! Just remember, colonialism was not a game! Unless you were one of the colonizers, in which case you could treat it like a game, which was exactly what was so unfair about it in the first place.
Finally, as a bonus, we have some game pieces from a different French colonial board game featured on Slate's fantastic history blog, and the box cover to its British equivalent.
