TtR as is eats up too much space when travelling that it'd be MUCH better to be able to have 8 to 12 different games across 2 boxes than just 2. For the latter situation, perhaps only bring one set of trains. However, many large groups should have a copy of TtR (US) that you could always just salvage those pieces to play another map concurrently

Hiya, yeah agree with you on the wasted board space. Have therefore made 4 of the print and play versions; Bretagne, Canada, Lithuania and Emerald State. Maps obviously fit fine on the back of DoW boards and cards, mainly tickets, pretty easy to get together and sleeve. I actually ditched the inners and carry around 4 boards in 2 boxes; Europe/Euro boards, US & world boards; then have my one set of wooden trains, train cards and tickets in a box - travel-themed - I bought separately.

Worth trying in my opinion!

I want Europe / USA double sided map for the sake of space. I own those sets along with Asia and Africa, and they practically take up the entire box on their own. I would be willing to bet Kinkos wouldn't copy the board due to copyrighting and scanning either map in chunks would probably end up coming out looking like smashed ass. Has anyone pulled this off?

Hmm, I'm a bit skeptical that someone at Kinkos would really care about or know about copyright infringement, let alone from board games. FWIW, you can show him your original TtR board, although I'm sure it still doesn't work that way.
