Title from illustrated box top.
Instructions are printed on a label on the verso of the box top.
BAC: British Art Center copy includes four color counters, but the game may originally have included more.
The object of the game is for each player to glide "like birds above the country trying to remain aloft the longest," the winner being whoever glides the furthest or reaches No. 60 on the board. The imagery partially evokes Christopher Richard Wynne Nevinson's prints of aerial views of landscape (ca. 1917).
