Summary

The game consists of the single sheet on which is printed two global views of the world--North and South America on the left, and Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia on the right--with numbered locations on each of the continents. On the bottom third of the sheet are printed the directions for how to play the game "Directions for making a tour round the world", the rules, and the locations numbered 1-100 with one sentence descriptions of each place.

The "new geographical pastime" is a game for 2-3 players. Beginning in Portsmouth and ending in London, England, the players spin the totum marked 1-8 [not supplied] and advance their pyramids [not included] to the numbered location on the map until circumnavigating the world from number 1 to 100.
