Gameplay in Brief:

I love this fast-paced game centered on cards representing the U.S. and Europe. Players try to save money by making a trip as short as possible... well, almost. In each round, seven state (or country, for Europe) cards are revealed, followed by an eighth card which is the starting state.

Players then race to put their token on the state card that can be reached from the starting state by crossing the fewest borders -- but not a state that actually borders the starting state (that mistake results in a penalty). There's no limit to the number of players who can choose a state, but there is a cost for not being first.

The Basics:

For 2 to 6 players, ages 8 and up. About 30 minutes per game.
