Colourful folding sugoroku game sheet, 55 x 79cm, a fukuwarai game on reverse does not include face pieces.

This is brightly coloured post-war sugoroku is a "round the world" game and this together with the fukuwarai game printed on the reverse would have been enjoyed by Japanese families during the new year celebrations. The game, which is colourfully illustrated, covers East Asia, Southeast Asia, New Guinea, Africa, Europe, and North and South Americas with the final goal being returning to Japan and visiting the Royal Palace in Tokyo. The game was probably printed in the 1960s when overseas travel by jet plane was regarded as a possible dream for many Japanese people. On the reverse is a fukuwarai (happy-laughter) game where a blind-folded player places eyes, nose, mouth and other pieces on the faces outlined.
