Title : A fine collection of 10 printed game boads, some with cartographical subjects..
Map maker : 10 GAME BOARDS.

Description :The most common game-play set up, used in board games even today, comes from an Italian game known as Goose, which originated in the late 1500s. This game, popular all over Europe in the 1600s, depends on luck instead of skill. The players race around a track divided up into 63 sections, and players spin a wheel or roll dice to move a certain number of spaces—the goal is to get to the end first.
Some sections are labeled with instructions to move forward or backward, while landing on a “goose” section gives the player another roll or spin.
