I recommend this game for families who are interested in geography. It is worth the price. When you are tired of it or your kids outgrow it, donate it to a school, church, or homeless shelter. I'm sure they will enjoy it too. We are all citizens of the world.
The aim of the game is to race around the world using a combination of train and ship travel cards as well as special travel cards. The winning player is the one who completes the journey in the least days as long as he/she doesn't come in last on their own.
This game is a lot of fun because it is often decided in the last few rounds.
The game is family friendly because there is a fair amount of luck although careful planning can mitigate this somewhat.
The game is very educational because it is very close to Jules Verne's book. So often we are used to movies "based on" a book but the movies don't feel like the book. This game feels like the book!
The cards and pieces seem very durable.
Overall, this game if 5 stars for what it is. It's not the deepest strategy game in the world but doesn't pretend to be either. Hard core game geeks may not want to play this amongst each other but could do worse than sharing this with their casual gamer friends. In addition, the artwork is simply stunning which greatly adds to the game's enjoyment. So, read the book and play the game or vice versa!
I am certain this game would be fine if the manufacturer re-wrote the directions.
