Product Description

Product Description

The age of passenger aviation has begun. Courageous entrepreneurs establish the first airlines and compete for the few available licenses in the European air space. The rapidly growing market and the chance for high gains attract high-powered investors. But only the ones that use their influence skillfully and their cash wisely will turn their investments into the most profitable airlines.

There are some game mechanics that have the same feel as Ticket to Ride.

I've grown to love the Ticket to Ride games over the years, and when I first saw Airlines Europe I thought for sure that it would turn out to be a T2R clone with planes instead of trains. Boy, was I on the wrong track! Not that Ticket to Ride is bad (believe me, it's wonderful), but Airlines Europe is a rather unique game that combines a transportation theme with a non-monetary stock market that pays out in Victory Points. The result is, in my opinion, one of the best games to be released in 2012.
Without getting into the specific game mechanics, here's how it works: In the early days of aviation, ten airlines of different sizes are vying for the licenses to operate between major cities in Europe. Players can invest in these ten airlines by securing these licenses, and are rewarded by taking stock certificates (for any of the airlines, not necessarily the one that they bought the license for). The players may add these stock to their portfolio, or trade it for shares in a larger airline, Air Abacus. As these airlines expand their territories, markers move up the scoring track. Three times during the game, a scoring card will be revealed, and each airline will award Victory points (as printed on the scoring track) to the players. The player with the most stock in an airline will get the most points, the second most stock will get the next highest points, etc. (Air Abacus has a pre-determined payout of points printed on the board.) After the third scoring card is revealed and points are awarded, the game ends. The player with the most points wins.
The game mechanics are simple and straightforward, and should become second nature by the time the first game is done.

For anyone who has played the game Ticket to Ride and loved it, this game is for you. Airlines Europe is based of course in Europe and involves investment in airline companies. Your goal is to accumulate shares of certain companies in order to be the majority share holder during each of the three scoring phases. You build the influence (and profitability) of the companies by buying route pieces (cute little airplanes) and adding them to the playing board. A few other minor rules also apply, but they are pretty easy to learn.

Though not quite as easy to learn as Ticket to Ride, Airlines still provides a tense feeling as you try to figure out which companies to invest in and which choice of many to make on each turn. Highly recommended for all families looking for a great game that will get played again and again.

This game is by the same designer as Ticket to Ride and is an update on the prior version that he first made called "Airlines". The game is beautiful and contains great bits inside with a very durable board and cards. It reminds me of the best elements of Ticket to Ride with the auction mechanic that makes Sid Sackson's Acquire such a great game. This game will be entertaining and is simple, yet strategic that will keep your group guessing who will win as the scoring rounds come up. This printing of the game is great but you do have to pay attention to the colors of the planes as the red and orange planes are hard to tell apart some times. There are some expansions that can be ordered or crafted from boardgamegeek.com that allow you to play with a 6th player or with extra destinations to make the game a little bit more fun.

Fun game for even 2 players once you understood the rules. Played several times and the game was very different with every time it was played.

Airlines Europe: 2-5 Players, Ages 13+, Average Play Time = 60-90 Minutes

Firstly, I want to praise the game for having a great tray insert for the pieces. The pieces themselves were bright and colorful, as were the cards. My only complaint was that it was hard to tell the difference between the red and orange planes. The manual did a good job in explaining the rules, but I was forced to re-read it multiple times before everything clicked. Along that note, this game was a lot to take in at first. The above doesn't cover all of the nitty-gritty details, which may serve to overwhelm new players. Our first play session lasted three hours and we were seeking water and Excedrin Migraine by the end of it. To be fair, we weren't the budding board game connoisseurs that we are today. I think our biggest hurdle was getting around the fact that players didn't get assigned any particular color. In games like "Ticket to Ride", it's clear as to who is who. "Airlines Europe" is more about observing all of the colors and making decisions based on what companies are pulling ahead of the others.

There's a boatload of strategy in "Airline Europe", mainly due to the fact that not all companies have the same amount of share cards. This brings company size into the mix. A company that has eight share cards is small compared to one that has sixteen. Having five share cards in a company that only has eight ensures that you'll have no competition. You could, in that example, safely expand that airline without having to worry about someone dropping shares at the last-minute to steal your precious victory points during a scoring round.
