Das Gänsespiel – Game of Goose
Luigi Ciompi, is a fellow-collector of Goose games and variants. He has set up an impressive new web site at http://www.giochidelloca.it/
It contains an archive (click on ‘archivio giochi’) of more than 900 games, each having an image in reasonably high definition and an associated page of notes, some quite detailed. The games come from Luigi’s own large collection, augmented by games from other collections. There is also a bibliography listing almost 200 books and articles, with an indication of relevance, and a history section (‘storia’) which contains about 50 downloadable articles, some in English, relating to this class of race game. There is also a links page, with some useful connections to sites with good downloadable images.
Navigation is in Italian but should not present many problems if you use the drop-down menus in the archivio section.
It would be useful if anyone interested could leave comments in the guestbook section (il libro degli ospiti) – these don’t have to be in Italian!
