Play involves claiming routes on the board using your trains and cards. Longer routes score more points but require more cards to claim. Your routes can be linked together to meet criteria in your journey cards and earn more points.
As play develops you battle for routes and points. Play ends when one player has used all of their trains and scores are totalled. To do well you need to complete you own objectives, whilst carefully watching and obstructing or avoiding opponents.
This results in a game that combines planning and flexibility with a quaint construction of rail routes. What starts as a simple challenge soon gives way to more layered strategies and the desire to play one more time.
When first playing, this can help:
- Limit player numbers to two, so that you have more space on the board.
- Remove the station pieces from the game to avoid learning their rules.
- Start by looking at the Journey cards together to locate stations.
- Ensure that players only have one longer journey card per game.
Play Time: This game will take between half an hour and 1 hour to complete. Duration is affected by speed of player and the number of people playing.
8+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Younger children may struggle with the length of the game, the strategy of utilising their resources. They also need to be able to cope with losing because they are targeted by another "mean" player.
