Very fun and extremely easy to learn . My kids and there friends love this game. I made the game 6 years ago and it has been well used since then. That version was hand drawn on paper and carton board.
My kids were 6 and 8 when I made the game and they still picks this game on family evenings. Even more now when we have a professional version of it.
Iv noticed that one of the things that makes the game so appreciated by kids, is that there are very little waiting time. Your move is made fast and by the time you have figured out where to go next, most of the other players has done there moves. And since all cards have pictures instead of words, even the young kids can play...

You can also play the game in many different ways...
For example: Deal out all the cards and only use 1 agent card (2 agent cards if your more then 2 players)
When played like this you really have to plan your trips very well...
You can download more ways to play the game on this page.

Have fun...
