I just got this a few days ago. It is so light, but I still enjoy it because it is light enough for me to get people to play. Scratches the track laying itch.

plays to 6 - rules for 2-3 with some slight changes. never looks the same. Best with the Vexation expansion. VERY simple rules and turns go fairly quickly. I prefer it to Ticket to Ride and will never not have it in my collection.

TransAmerica might be the best gateway / introduction to all train games. Very easy to learn track laying game that plays up to 6.

Players race to connection their 5 cities on the board by placing tracks on the map. Even simpler than Ticket to Ride .

Can be a bit too simple / easy as kids get older but the Vexation expansion adds a nice wrinkle to the game by giving players a chance to keep others off their railways.

Would like to try Trans Europa the sequel(?) to this game. It might be the same exact game with a European map.

Should I be lucky, this is a beloved game that my brother owns, and is currently overseas on a tour of duty. So if I were to get this game, I could play this game with others, and enjoy it once again. I know it is coming back in print, but who doesn't love a free game?

About three weeks ago, my family moved from a small duplex we were renting to a house that we just purchased. While we have many reasons to be excited about owning a home, at the top of our list is the opportunity to host friends and acquaintances. Hospitality is important to us, but space constraints limited how we could use our old space: I could barely fit four people around a card table set up in the center of my living room. Our very first addition to the home was a dining table and chairs we found on Craigslist, and my wife and I are excited about the possibility of hosting game nights and sharing meals with friends.

TransAmerica may not be the game I would like the best from your trade list (though it does sound fun), but until recently it wasn't even possible for me to consider inviting a group of 5 or 6 people over for a night of food and games. I'm hoping that a game like this would hit the table often as we attempt to make our new home a place of hospitality.

Monday 5/16 @ JP23

I've played this game hundreds of times online (BSW) but this was my first IRL and first play in 7 years.

I taught 5 people, which is nice since it plays best at 6, and everyone liked it. It was a nice easy-to-learn, plays-quick kind of game that everyone said they would definitely play again. The game is almost too simple to be fun, but there is something about the subtle manipulation and jedi mind tricks that I love.

I am happy I picked up this reprint.

This was the biggest hit with my 8 year old. Ticket to Ride seems to be too long to hold the attention of my 6 year year old, so TransAmerica is a good compromise. We play without the Vexation expansion. I really enjoy this one as well and my wife has joined in for a couple of games.

We do play a variant on the scoring in that we just play one round and score upwards from zero based on the number of cities connected.

My six year old has had some frustrations with this game, as I don't think he cares for the game ending right before he completes his routes.

My wife picked this up for me as a Christmas gift. I like the game, but it takes forever to play with 2. It is much more rewarding, and quicker, with its full complement of players. That said, it is a very easy game to introduce people to "unfamiliar" games. It can be a lot of fun.
