Mille bornes, a famous french card game ported to the computer in 1989. The players compete with each other to be the first one to reach one thousand milestones. Several hazards can happen, like out of gas or a flat tire, slowing you down.
A player may have a "special card" making him immune to one hazard, like Puncture-proof tires. The game was a hit in many countries during the last decade and is still popular.
