'THE SIR FRANCIS CHICHESTER GAME' BOARD GAME: "Monday's dawn was a magnificent and terrifying sight. Across the heaving seas I made out thirty miles to the North East the landfall I was looking for - Cape Horn Island." Re-live Chichester's epic 29,500-mile voyage around the world by racing Gypsy Moth IV to Sydney and back around the Horn!

This exquisite collectors' item is complete and in very good condition indeed throughout. The substantial box is in good condition with only minor repairs to some of the corners having been made. The iconic picture on the box lid is in excellent condition and the box generally has retained its shape and integrity. The smaller box which houses the game's contents is in excellent condition: neither the cardboard or the original cellophane is ripped or torn in any way.

The very large game board presents itself very nicely and each one of the 100 chance cards is in immaculate condition. The game even contains the original dice and shaker. Most impressive, however, are the six - and somewhat delicate - Gypsy Moth IV playing pieces. Each is in flawless condition and without any damage of any kind whatsoever.

For 2 - 6 players.
