Review:
The goal of this brilliant game is to arrange ten tiles (representing 50 states and 3 transportion modes) in a sequence that becomes a connecting ten-day cross-country journey. Connections can be made by foot (to an adjacent state), by automobile (to drive through an adjacent state that that also borders on the destination); or by airplane (between two states that are the same color as the plane). After initially arranging a random selection of ten tiles, players take turns drawing, replacing, and discarding tiles in order to complete a connected ten-day itinerary. This handsomely designed game has clear and simple rules. While concentrating on the strategy, players are subliminally learning the geography of the United States.
