Win This Game!

If you like board games or are just a collector of cool stuff, check this out. It's a board game developed in 1986 by Sparkman & Stephens, in which each player embarks on a yacht race around the world. And it's yours to win.

Before I tell you how to win it, of course, I'm sure you'll want to know how to play the game. The two-inch-tall pieces that players move around the board are classic S&S racing and cruising designs, crafted in pewter. The game also comes with 360 cards, each with six questions about seamanship, navigation, yachting trivia, and equipment. Naturally each correct answer means you can advance around the board, where spaces are represented by waves. (The racing yachts can only occupy blue waves, while cruising yachts occupy the white waves.) There's even a lot to keep a record of competitors, dates, and margins of victory—a true sailor's approach.

So how do you win? Send an e-mail to with the subject line "Game Raffle," complete with your name, address, and telephone winner. Two lucky people will be chosen by Sparkman & Stephens.

Good luck!
