Description

Airlines Europe: a stock game that at first glance looks like a network building game like Jet Set or Ticket To Ride, but plays very differently.

In Airlines Europe, the age of passenger aviation has begun. Courageous entrepreneurs establish the first airlines and compete for the few available licenses in the European air space. The rapidly growing market and the chance for high gains attract high powered investors. But only the ones that use their influence skillfully and their cash wisely will turn their investments into the most profitable airlines.

At its heart, Airlines Europe is a stock game, with players earning points for the stock they hold in particular airline companies when one of the randomly determined scorings takes place. On a player's turn, that player either expands an airline and claims a stock, plays stock onto the board and receives dividend, invests in a special airline called Air ABACUS or gets a certain amount of money from the bank. A player scores only for stock in play, but the value of an airline is determined by the value of the route licences that airline owns - thus, you're torn in terms of what to play when.

Reimplements Airlines and Union Pacific with reduced playtime.
