The game plays well at different levels. Younger or inexperienced players can enjoy it as a fun game that teaches a bit about U.S. geography, while expert strategists will find a reasonable amount of depth and replayability relative to the simple mechanics.
A rare plus of this game is that it scales well from 2 to 6 players. It's balanced and lively with as few as 2, and it doesn't bog down with a full 6.
Bottom Line: Is it fun? yes. Is it worth buying for a couple of months. Sure. Is it for kids? As long as they can read.
TransAmerica is played in a series of rounds, in which the players each draw five (of 32) city cards, one from each of the five colored regions of the United States. The players then secretly determine the best route to connect all of their cities by rail, and take turns placing rails on the board. As soon as two players' rail networks touch, they can use both networks to further their development, which adds an interesting twist to the game. The first person to connect all five of their cities wins the round, and the other players collect negative points in proportion to how many railway sections they are lacking. These short rounds continue until one player's score triggers the game end, which is usually after two to four rounds.
I found TransAmerica while rummaging through a pile of undesirable games at a local thrift shop--and undesirable is an understatement! My mother spotted a small orange box that read, "TransAmerica Eine Spur schneller, $2.99." It looked interesting, but the entire game was in German, including the directions. We called up my husband, and he was able to find the directions online and in English.Read more ›

This plays the same as Tran-Europa, but with a map of America instead of Europe. Hard to find and out of print, I think it is worth buying even at the high prices offered. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Randal Greenwood

This is such a fun game. We also make up different rules to make it different each time. Our group plays this a lot and always have fun doing so.Published on June 13, 2013 by Dar K
My son absolutely loves this game! He is 10 and asks to play all the time. He loves trying to figure out the strategies to beat his dad and I.Published on June 5, 2013 by Judith M. Steck
We love Ticket to Ride but it takes a couple of hours. Trans America is a similar game but much simpler and can be completed in a shorter time, or you can choose to play more... Read morePublished on May 14, 2013 by Lana G
