The Great Race

The world-wide race for the whole family!




In this fast paced game, set in the turn of the century world, you can travel by automobile, train, ship, or airplane as you criss and cross your way around the globe passing through 32 different cities along the way. You must choose which path is the best for you and play your strategy against others. Watch out! the occasional natural disaster can really throw a wrench in you plans to be the first to the finish line.


In 1908, what many called "The Great Race" was sponsored by the NEW YORK TIMES and the LA MATIN (a Paris newspaper). The torturous New York to Paris Race route: NYC, Albany, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, Valdez Alaska, Japan, Vladivostok, Omsk, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Berlin and finally Paris. The Thomas Flyer Team covered three continents and over 22,000 miles in 169 days. The 1908 Race was ultimately won by the American Thomas Flyer driven by George Schuster Sr. of Buffalo, NY. The feat has never been equaled. They still hold the world record over 100 years later!
