What are the 4 chips used for?

The instructions make no mention of them. Some have speculated they are used to mark "coup fourré", or extension to 1000 points.

Any thoughts?

Mille Bornes game items

  • Not to state the painfully obvious, but do the rules reference them at all? (If you don't speak/read French you can scan them)

  • @LeppyR64 Native french, so it's not a language thing. One clue is that they are different colors, possibly distributed one per player.

    I've always played placed coup-fourrés sideways ...

  • That's what all the other editions of the rules do too :) I have the Hasbro one. It certainly reduces the component cost, but this makes it easier to remember when scoring in case they get mixed in. I've never had this problem though.

    In my version, there are different scores printed on the safeties so that when one is played on the side it’s clear it’s worth more. Much better design than using little tokens.
