I've just printed out the Belgian version and laminated it. It looks great. Have also got the original and have Europe on order.

Haven't played the London Undergorund or Lyon versions. Has anyone here played any of these or any other variants? Which do they recommend. Leave links if poss.

Anyone played the original with 6 players using wooden blocks or such like? Maybe if each player got 5 less carriages it would be ok.

I have the original TTR, TTR - Europe, Lyon, and Belgium. The last two are printed and laminated and I have the cards in my TTR box. I have not had a chance to play them though.

I did not know about the London one. Where is it located?

Where did you get the Lyon and Belgium maps? I would love to get my hands on them.

I just sent a variant for the original to BGG today called "Destination Free-for-All. When it gets posted, try it out and let me know what you think. It's the only way we play TtR now. laugh

Someone should do a Giant "The world" map for Convention play. Thats would be cool. Could do sea routes and use the boat meeples from SoC:Seafarers.

I've got the original and a big stack of print-outs for Lyon and Belgium waiting to be made into games. The tickets I'm thinking just to mount on decent card and then slice up, maybe laminate afterwards, but what did you do with the boards?

I'm thinking they need to fold so I can store / transport them, but I'm not sure whether to put them on A3 or A4, and what sort of tape to use between sheets that's strong enough to make good hinges but flat enough not to make mountains in the board. Also, any ideas on how to protect a folding board afterwards? I can't see how to laminate it, is there any kind of varnish (or varnishing technique) that would cope with the folding?

What I did was lightly tape the whole thing together. Then I cut it in half. Then I had the whole thing laminated at Kinkos with about a 1/4" gap where I cut it in half so it would fold.

It is big, but ok to store folded in half.

The Belgian Map is here:

http://www.jeuxdenim.be///

You may need to do some resizing to get it right.

The London Undeground Map, I've never seen, but I read about it on a list today. There was a link to it, but when you press it now, it defaults to TtR. Since the Belgian Game also used to have an entry to itself but links to that now also default to TtR then maybe there was once an entry for TtR London. I did not see it, but I imagine that it may have been there.

I can't remember which list it was, but I tyhink it was about variants.

I'd love to see an African map. That would be cool.
