TOUR DE FRANCE CYCLISTE
Dernieres Nouvelles, France, 1930s

 

Pre-war boxed promotional game for the alsatian newspaper Dernieres Nouvelles (which still exists).

 

A very big board: It cosists of six panels, each of one measures 37.5 x 30 cm. AThe pre-war Tours had a similar race design. The featured stages are very similar to the ones of each tour from 1933 to 1938.

 

As you can see, the rules are printed on the board and they are very simple.

 

On the other hand, the tin cyclists are very beautiful. When I first saw them I was not 100% sure that they belonged to the game. The wheels look very new, for instance. However, I have seen another copy of the game with the same riders, so after all the belong to the game.
