Children’s Card Games (28)

October 10th, 2008 · 5 Comments


“Sky Trails,” a 1951 miniature game from Russell, was a bit more complicated than most.  There are two kinds of cards, Map Cards and Route Cards.  The Map Cards can be laid end to end to show the route from San Francisco to Shanghai; the Route Cards show the destinations along the way.  The objective is to collect all of the Map Cards and three consecutive Route Cards.  I’ve selected Shannon, Ireland: land o’ hoein’.

    You mean, in 1951 there was a wide world outside of the United States? I’d love to see the route from Washington to Moscow.

    Alas, Moscow is not represented. You do get Shanghai and Hanoi, though.
