I have never seen a commercially available printed
board of the Game of the Goose.  Who makes it?  Where
could I get a copy?  I am from Los Angeles,
California, and usually I can find almost anything
somewhere in the Greater Los Angeles area, but this I
haven't.  I suspect that it may be British or perhaps

The only board I have ever seen up-close-and-personal
is the one that I made for myself based on one of
Bell's books.  It is just a piece of wood that I
woodburned the game onto.  I use generic wooden
counters for the pieces.  Not fancy, but it works.


Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves for they 
shall never cease to be amused.
