I have a couple of geographically-related points about the Aliyah board game from the 1970s:
  • Does England include just England proper or all of Great Britain or the United Kingdom (many people casually calling the latter two "England" despite also including Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland - especially outside the English-speaking world)? The thing is that the picture in a 2021 Tablet Magazine article about the game (Making Aliyah—the Jewish Board Game - Tablet Magazine) doesn't show the map for England, unlike the other five countries/regions, since that is obscured by the quizbook for the game.
  • The game's creator most probably should have used Brazil or Argentina or perhaps some other South American country rather than the continent of South America as a whole.
Your thoughts (especially those who remember the game or who are familiar with it)?

(A note to the uninitiated: Aliyah is the phenomenon of Jews from the diaspora moving to Israel.)
