Anybody remember the card game, Mille Bornes? Oh, how we might pine for the simpler times when the hazard cards and battle piles need not include "es zones interdits" or "le Car-B-Q" and before the possibility of Coup Fourre had become a quaint, ancient fantasy.

I recall Mille Bournes (the spelling I was raised on, though yours may be preferred now!) quite vividly, but hadn't thought about it for many years.

I like your proposal for an updated version.

I larnt my spelling, such as it is, through Milton-Bradley, Looney Tunes, Hanna Barbera, Rocky and Friends, and a very few other select sources (Sister Henrietta was, ummm... somewhat persuasive from time to time - speaking of which, the freakin' Senate don't know diddley about torture!)
