PICSOUTOUR DE FRANCE
M. Gerchambeau/Picsou, France, 1983


 

 

This game was given as a bonus in july 1983 with the French Picsou magazine, issue nš 137. (The following year the bonus would be Pic-Etape, and in 1886 we would have Bicross).

 

 

 

Despite the childishness of the board design (what did you expect anyway?), the game is a not-so-obvious dice game, of the push-your-luck genre, complete with special rules for mountain and sprint sections.

 

I have not assembled the special dice. I admit I do not even understand how I should do it. As Groucho Marx said, "A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five." What I understand is that if I did assemble them I would eventually have 2 six-sided dice, each of them featuring three blank sides and three sides with a cyclist. Technically, these are D2s (also called coins).

I do understand how to assemble the riders, however....

 

(I admit I just  included this picture to indulge myself in a little old funny copyright infringment. I am mean.)
