Game on!

Before opening this, I imagine that I would have a lump in 
the back of my throat. Gulp!

This is probably the most beautiful board game I come across. It's called, 'Juego de Salon Vuelta Ciclista a Espana.' Originating from Spain circa 1950's. The detailed finish of the racers and the three dimension mountains are amazingly well crafted. I like the idea that it represents the Pyrenees. Just spin the wheel and move the metal racers on the wooden panel board. I could never get tired looking at it. Talk about cool elegance in design.

I would love to own this one!

Improving with age, successfully!
