mille bornes and blog2print

I regularly get my blog printed into books; I think of this as a kind of journal and know that I'll have them on hand, and they'll never be accidentally deleted or become obsolete. I know I've told you about Blog2Print before, but if you've been thinking about trying it out, now's the time! If two people get books printed using this link, I will get a free book. Which would be great - I'm almost caught up. Just so you know.

The in-laws were here for a few days, and we had a great visit, including a Mille Bornes tournament of sorts. We got the game at Adam's grandmother's farmhouse several years ago, and I think it was made around 1971. There are still old score cards in it, which I love. Check out some of the cards:
I think the mechanic is kind of cute, but the flat tire card is my favourite.

And I'm in the process of sorting out the CSA thing with a local farm! They're accepting new subscriptions, even though it's part-way through the season, and I'm super excited. If you're in the area and interested, call Gilberte at 837-4181. Yipee! Happy Tuesday.

  1. Do you play Rook too? I love milles bornes and rook. the cards are adorable that you show.

    I will click the link and see about putting my blog into print. I want to preserve it because who knows if one day the whole thing will go *poof* and disappear?!

  2. We do indeed! It's another great card game. Wizard is another favourite around here. :) Thanks for the link you sent earlier, by the way! I know exactly what you mean about the blog thing - I don't expect it to disappear, but I do want a record. :) Take care!

  3. I grew up playing Mille Bornes and still have it, now my boys enjoy playing it. So fun to have all my old games and to be able to enjoy them with my kids.
