Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant game! Completely absorbing and great fun Bought on recommendation of a work colleague. Played with 4 adults and then 5 adults, also with 2 kids, aged 9 and 11. Loved by all. Games last about 45 minutes with options to extend. We ended up playing every night of our 10 day holiday for about 3 hours a night. Plenty of tactics required, as well as luck needed. We introduced game, as per instructions, in stages. This avoids over-complicating it whilst learning. Easy to master. Requires you to hold 5 cards in your hand, collect and discard cards as you travel the world, visiting countries. Clever concept, addictive game. 14 September 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Too Complicated My daughter bought this as a game we could take on holiday with us. Unfortunately it is very complicated and neither of us could work out what the rules really were! 20 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Top game for teenagers & adults Bought this game as it looked a little different and was looking for something small to take on holiday. It’s now our favourite game and we are still playing at home. It’s all about travelling around the world. The key is playing the right cards at the right time and you can use combinations of different cards to make a killer move. The game can change quickly and a lot of games come down to the last few cards, so we always want to play it again. There is a useful section in the rules with step by step instructions to introduce the game for beginners, but its also written on each of the cards what they do so after a go or two you’ll be flying and as hooked as we are. Highly recommended. 23 November 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great game As other reviwers have commented a little slow at the start to understand all the rules and learning the game but it is well worth the effort a great game. 15 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good fun This was bought for a Uni student son as a stocking filler. We had great fun after Christmas learning to play this card game and chose to get together several times for this over the week. As with many new games it seemed complicated initially but once we were playing we soon picked it up. Most of the cards are self-explanatory which helps. Our games were punctuated by much laughter and good-natured teasing as there were opportunities within the game to be 'nasty or nice'. I'm glad I ordered it for my son. 13 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very addictive game about travelling around the world We bought this game about travelling around the world to take on a family holiday and ended up playing almost every night. It took a couple of goes to understand the tactics but you soon become very addicted. There are lots of twists and turns and the lead can suddenly change. It’s rare to find a game that everyone wants to play in the family, but this is it. Ideal for anyone from 11 upwards, we play it with both the kids and with adults only. Highly recommended. 07 November 2012
