The full title is Règles du Grand Jeu de la Génese. Gloire à Dieu etc. (sic). The 63-space spiral covers events from the Book of Genesis. In the four corners are scenes depicting the Creation of the World; the Creation of Adam, Eve and the creatures of the Earth; Noah’s Ark; and the escape of Lot and his daughters from the burning city of Sodom. The spiral, in which each space shows a different scene referenced to a text from Genesis, begins at space 1 with the eating of the forbidden fruit, showing the tree with the Serpent entwined around its trunk. The final event, on space 62, shows the death of Joseph, as minister to the King of Egypt, while the winning ‘celestial’ space at 63 shows the Angel of Genesis bearing a scroll to the Glory of God. The favourable goose-rule spaces are traditionally arranged in the usual two sequences and are distinguished by an upper-case letter G. The hazards are not in general thematic: for example, the death space at 58 shows the chastity of Joseph with Potiphar (though it is marked with an unrelated skull and crossbones), whereas the death scene of Cain slaying Abel is at space 5 and is marked with a G. This complete lack of thematic correspondence is somewhat unusual in French 63-space goose games of this period.

"The Game of Genesis (Le Jeu de Genese)", published by Paul André Basset Paris (active 1785-1815), Paris, etching and engraving. Waddesdon Manor, The Rothschild Collection (Rothschild Family Trust).
The game depicts the major events in the biblical Book of Genesis. The first square shows the exile of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden and square 63 the death of Joseph. The scenes in the four corners are: the creation of the world, the creation of Adam and Eve and the creatures of the earth, Noah’s Ark, and Lot and his daughters escaping the burning city of Sodom. The rules of the game state that the first player to reach the final square wins the game and also brings Glory to God.
