Although all of the 10 Days games are similar, what makes Asia unique is the use of "railroads" to connect the countries. The other games have airplanes, cars, and ocean travel, but Asia is the only one with railroads and that makes it all the more intriguing - you can really make some cool connections.
I can't recommend a board game any higher - it's an awful lot of fun for around twenty bucks!
The colors are not very distinct for someone will poor vision like me. I put initials for the colors on the cards with a black marker to solve that problem.
We bought USA next. It didn't seem as challenging. Maybe just because it was more familiar. When we played with USA and Europe side-by-side it was much funner.
Then we bought Asia. We only played it once by itself. Now we almost always play with all 3 together. To make it a little tricker, we include the St. Lawrance seaway and the Great Lakes as part of the Atlantic Ocean. We also make it 20 days instead of 10 days. With that many to link together your strategy has to be very dynamic.
We are looking forward to buying Africa, but I don't know how we will fit them all on the table. We hope they come out with one that includes Central & South America (maybe an "10 Days in the Americas").
It's not very hard to play once you get the hang of it, I just wish the directions were more detailed. It was the picture on the back of the box that really put how to play the game in perspective. You can see the cards and figure out how they all connect to each other. And the three piles of discard cards made sense too once you started getting into the game. I noticed that this game is not currently available on Amazon, but if you need or just want to have a fun way to learn the geography of Asia (and there is a LOT of it) this is a very fun way to do so.
challenging. We like the geography lesson each time we play it. We find it very interesting.
I think this game is very educational. This was a Christmas present for my 21` year old son who is majoring in Math.
So we bought the Asia (and Africa) version. 10 Days in Asia is different enough from the Europe game that it's still a challenge and fun. It's not just "same game; different names" like all the different Monopoly versions. The objective of Asia may be the same but the way to get there is different from the Europe version.
Like Racko (if you've played it), you have to get your 10 tiles in a particular order by picking up new tiles and discarding from your hand. Unlike Racko, you're dealing with countries and ways to travel from one place to another--train, sea, or "walking"--and there are lots of options.
There are some games I always win so the family won't play with me (Boggle, for instance). But with the 10 Days In games, it's a toss up who will win. It takes strategy & skill but it also depends on when the right card comes up. Playing time for us has been 5-20 minutes...and then we play a new round so that takes us up to 10-40 minutes. Allow for additional time when snacking, too. :)
