Random Journey #2

A 'Pigs in Clover'-type game in which the baseboard is a schematic map of the Tokyo Metro. Each metro station is represented by a hole in the baseboard. In use, the book is manipulated until each of the two ball bearings is seated in a hole; a journey can then be made between the two stations.

The randomness of the journey is increased by the fact that most readers will be unfamiliar with the Tokyo Metro system, and few will understand the Japanese station names.
