‘Antarctica’ board game, 1913, made by National Games Company, Melbourne. National Museum of Australia.

Antarctic board games of yore.

The strange things one finds during game development.

The above image/game dates from the time of Scott and Amundsen’s historic race to the pole. How playable or fun is debatable – essentially a roll and move. Good to know that the last time the subject matter was tackled in a board game was a 100 years ago!
