"Jeu des Circuits Européens": French aviation-themed game for four players. Thin numbered rectangles on the game sheet provide color illustrations of various flying situations that players may find themselves in. Arriving safely in various European cities and simply flying over different landscapes are intermixed with images of airplanes getting tangled in telegraph wires, catching fire, crashing into a haystack, crashing in the water, crashing into a windmill, crashing through the roof of a building, landing on a cow, and even being attacked by an enormous bird that the pilot has to try to shoot with his pistol. The aim of the game appears to be the first player to reach Paris.
