Parker Brothers purchased the rights to the card game Touring from the Wallie Dorr Company and began producing the game in 1925. Touring enjoyed much success over the years through the 1950s. For some reason, Parker changed the name from "Touring" to "Mille Bornes," the French name, sometime in the 1970s, and still sells that game today. Mille Bornes simulates an auto trip or race for the players, who play mileage cards to advance along the journey. The game's rules vary only slightly from the original game Touring.
