Cardboard Game - Rechercher le Fromage

Another young friend has had a birthday...and another reuse cardboard game was created. This time it's in French as my young friend has a hankering to learn the language.

The rules aren't exactly solidified - but the basic idea is you hide the cardboard pieces then you find them. After that there are points to be had and things to remembered and spelled. There are informative tidbits about the Revolution and the architecture on the backs of those cards. My hope is that with in a year it will be a no brainer for all those 6-13 year old kids who've played it that the Eiffel tower was made out of puddle iron and that Chartres Cathedral is High Gothic and  that Notra Dame is on the Ile de la Cite. Maybe I'll create an arrondissement board to go with it...
