This will be my blog home for 20th Century Limited. In this blog I will try to give as many insights as I can into the development and hopefully the publication of this game.

In 20th Century Limited Carla & I have adopted the same type of movement grid as was used in Trans America. The board uses a series of triangles where players can create their own custom connections which can vary each game. We felt that the ability to flow across the board as needed was superior to the "connection" model found in a game like Ticket to Ride. The routes needed to be flexible enough to allow players to connect not only regional cities but also to create some of the great rail lines of history. Canada, Mexico and the continental United States have all been included with 120 different cities depicted. The only terrain that can cause trouble are the oceans and the largest lakes.

The board is divided into 8 regions; Eastern Seaboard, Midwest, Deep South, central states, Texas-Mexico, Pacific & Rockies, Southwest & Northwest. When the game was first conceived it made a very definitive progression from east to west but for play-ability reasons it now has a slightly more open look when being played. The board is simple, clean and very easy for most anyone to become comfortable with quickly.

Learning the board is a snap, its placing the pieces on the board that provides the challenge.
