Great family game
January 04, 2005

This is a wonderful family and gateway game, perhaps a bit too simple for dedicated gamers.

The rules are not complex but there are elements of Euro design added to a fairly basic race game.

The idea is that each player is racing from destination to destination to get round the world in the quickest time. To move, players have to play cards that match the symbols on the map between destinations (ie Train/Boat or combination) The cards have numbers on them (lower the better) which equates to how many days are used when playing that card

Each turn players must choose the card they want to take from a row – the catch is that each card is linked to an additional beneficial event. So whilst you may want a ship card with a low number you also really want to move the detective and the card against that action is a train. So do you pick the card you want or pick the card above the event you want?

My seven year old picked this game up very quickly and enjoyed playing it with the family. My five year old needs a bit of help but is happy to join in.

Overall this is a very good family game and one I recommend.

 
 
 
 
 
Around the table we go...
April 12, 2005

The perfect game to add to your collection if you want a board game that plays well with five or six players. The game plays smoothly, and quickly.

On the downside the box is almost completly empty with very few bits. I feel this game is way over priced for what you get inside the box. But now that I own it, I'll be bringing it out on those 6 player gaming sessions.
