This game has a few great points: it teaches a nice broad overview of European geography to give players a sense of where various countries/cities are located; it doesn't feel like any one player is beating the pants off the others while you play; and even when you're losing you still enjoy the process of racing to get your train lines onto the central tracks others have built for you. I love transportation games (Ticket to Ride, Metro, Thurn & Taxis) but each is different, and this is a great addition to the collection!
Overall, the game is fast-paced and you can whip through a two-player game in 15-20 minutes. You lay down track pieces to connect a collection of cities you draw at the start of the game. The first person to connect all their cities ends the game and the losing players lose points for every track they don't lay to connect their respective cities.
The main issue I have with the game, and I think others have mentioned it, is that if you luck out with the cities you draw, you have a significant advantage over a player that draws cities that are just a bit more out of the way than others. This combined with the fact that you can piggyback on other players' networks to reach destinations means you could connect to a player's network and finish the game in no time. It IS part of the strategy but it shortens the game a bit.
So, while this is a fun little short game when you want some fast-paced game play, if you're looking for something more sophisticated and involving, I suggest Ticket to Ride. And, if you can, get the expansion, Ticket to Ride - USA 1910 Expansion DOW 7216, since it gives you playing card sized cards over the miniature ones that come with the original game.
The results are never the same and every game or round can turn out different. Hard to find game, but I thought well worth hunting for. It and Trans America are both two of the most popular games in our board gaming club and played almost every week and sometimes both games hit the table for play..

Great family board game. Uses some logic to connect your 5 cities by railways. You have to use each others tracks to be first to connect all 5 wins.Published on January 9, 2014 by Jessica Dobson
