Notes
Content: Board game of a voyage through the universe, based on the researches of the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe. Pieces would have moved counterclockwise, starting at the lower left of the oval, according to a random number obtained by using a spinner (dice were considered vulgar and only for gamblers). From the outside inward to the center, the main sections along the track are: elements, planets, constellations of the northern hemisphere, signs of the Zodiac, constellations of the southern hemisphere, and the Heavens. The game's rules are printed in the corners around the board.
