Game Review 1 (written by Hillyer) Added on: 11/15/2007
Mille Bornes is one of those games that so many of us middle-aged folks accidentally run into while looking for long-forgotten games. We invariably exclaim something like, "Holy moly! I haven't even thought about that game in a million years!" But we are always excited and rush to download it or play it online.
It is fun to play, yet difficult to get really good at it. You always want to play your cards at the right time. Like life, you need the right cards to get going.
Then you need to collect more of the right cards and play them in the right order in order to succeed. Clear as mud? Come along with me.
FIrst you need a green light to start your trip of 1000 miles. (Mille Bornes) Once you have played your green light, you are free to travel. You do that by playing your distance cards, 200, 100, 75, 50, 25. As you play one card you draw another one. Sometimes you can't play one, so you have to discard one instead. You see, your opponent wants to win the race, and will place perils in your path to distract or dismember you. You, of course, are trying to do your worst against

him at the same time. You can be as mean as you wish. Red lights, out of gas, flat tire, speed limit, accidents - all these things can keep you from where you need to be. Luckily, there are more green lights, fuel, new tires, higher speed limits and repair shops along the way to get you to where you need to go. Now, what can you do if your buddy keeps throwing you to the wolves? Well, you have four super cards hidden away in the deck that you are always on the lookout for. There is Driving Ace, which makes sure you never have another accident. There is Fuel Tanker. That's right. Never run out of gas again. There is Puncture Proof. No more flat tires, and then of course there is Right of Way. No more troublesome red lights or speed limits to worry about.
So as you get closer to your destination, you must remember that you must total 1000 exactly. Keep some of the smaller distance cards handy. And don't be too greedy with those 200 mile cards. Eventually as you get close, they are as useless as ice cube trays in the Arctic. So keep this all in mind, and have fun!
Game Review 2 (written by Redraven) Added on: 07/26/2006
Mille Bornes is a French card game between 2 and more players. Cards are of milestones, road hazards, and other interesting things that add excitement to the game. One will win the game buy accumulating 1000 miles, watch out for the hazards being laid on you from another player. Can be played in teams as well...Much fun, excitement, and laughter, the games is so enjoyable you'll want to play it for hour's.

The original DOS do-it-yourself GUI version runs flawlessly in a full-screen DOS box on my Win XP SP2 machine. The game is simple to play but has strategic subtleties that you will eventually learn (or you can get a head start by reading about them in the Wikipedia article). Try it and you you'll see why it's been around for over half a century.

This is *so* huge ! I had a copy of this very game over fifteen years ago and this is the very best MB I've ever played on a PC. So happy to have it back !

This is such a great game. Played it as a kid on my old computer, and loved it! You definitely won't regret giving it a try.
