Jeu de l'Oie Kitchen / Tea Towel
Jeu de l'Oie Goose's Wild Game) - All in French, this is one of the most charming towels offered by Beauvillé. It contains images from the board game, Jeu de l'Oie - or Game of the Goose (Goose's Wild) whose origins are uncertain in Europe. The game itself consists of a track with consecutively numbered spaces, and is often arranged in a spiral with the starting point at the outside. Each player's piece is moved according to throws of one or two dice. Scattered throughout the board are a number of spaces on which a goose is depicted; landing on a goose allows the player to move again by the same distance. Additional shortcuts, such as spaces marked with a bridge, move the player to some other specified position. There are also a few penalty spaces which force the player to move backwards or lose one or more turns, the most recognizable being the one marked with a skull and symbolizing death; landing on this space results in the player being sent back to start.
Perfect for any kitchen with a french decor - crisp, vibrant colors. Ideal for the francophile.
