Arto's Swedish Astronaut Game

Here's one for the Toad, a close-up of the Astronaut board game instructions sheet he requested. In Swedish only, sorry! The first paragraph is an intro talking about recent manned space flights, which would date the game somewhere early-mid 60's. The game itself is very simple, the rockets trying to make the red path around the Earth while the Robot (or Tobor, should I say) moves along the yellow ones, made of heavenly bodies, and tries to shoot the poor rockets down. Should their paths cross in a same square along the way, the rocket is lost to oblivion. The last rocket standing wins. There is a marking "Nr. 3185 K schwed." on the bottom suggesting that versions in different languages exist. However, I have not come across any other examples yet. "schwed." for "Schwedisch" or "Swedish" in German would suggest an (Eastern) German manufacture. Cheers Arto

  1. Thank you so much for that, Arto - much appreciated!!!

    If we can get the exact instructions, I say we have a play of this one night. Any takers?
