Travel through the continent of Europe and see the sights in this enthralling family board game.
There are place cards for 180 different European cities from Paris to Prague, Moscow to Madrid. Each traveller receives place cards for nine of these cities and he must visit all of them on his journey. The cities are different for each traveller and different each time the game is played.
Many of the place cards carry instructions, and these should be carefully considered during the all-important route planning.
Skill and judgement are needed to decide the quickest way to travel -- overland, by sea or by air.
The first traveler to complete his journey and return home wins the game.

I have the version of this game entitled EXPLORE EUROPE. I'm assuming this is the same game.
The board is two sided with a map of Europe on one side (with all the countries in different colors to distinguish) and the other side is the same map but without the separation into countries.
The object of the game is to be the first player to travel to all the destinations (cities) on the cards he's dealt at the beginning. There are a few different modes of travel: land, air and boat. You must plan out your route and decide which is the best method of travel to arrive at your destinations in as few moves as possible.
For rolling a one, you have an option of either moving one space OR taking a travel card and following the instructions on it, example: 'Your flight is fogged in... miss a turn' or 'move to your next destination' or 'if you can name a river in the country you're in, take two extra turns'.
This is not an overly exciting game, but it's particularly useful if you're planning a trip to Europe and you want to familarize yourself with the continent.
My kids like it, and of course the components are excellent. The destination cards have a gorgeous color photo on them with a detailed description of the city. Fabulous idea!
