1 play, long ago. I think it was a pretty fun economic/network-building/area control game. But Mary didn't like it much at all -- too wargamey -- so it sat on the shelf for years before finally being sold off.

Fun multiplayer; can be more luck-based than many are comfortable with... and those who are eliminated early or even midway through might as well find something else to do: the game allows for their return, but they have no realistically effective courses of action for the remainder of the game

Lots of luck-laden fun. Need to try the advanced rules to see if they improve the game.

Thoughts after first play: An old classic, feels somewhat like Merchant of Venus to me even though the game play is not at all similar. Fiddly, but I don't mind. Played it yesterday for the first time and dreamt about it all last night -- a definite keeper! (Rating 8) Thoughts after second play: Still interesting, but luck plays too strong a role for my taste. Winner of our game went from about 160 to enough market share to win as the result of one turn with about 10 successful takeovers. I'll still play it every once in a while, but I don't think I need to own it. (Rating 6.5) Third play reinforces opinion after second play.

Finally had a chance to play this after wanting to for a very long time. I even had my own copy at one time but never played it and ended up trading it away. It may be a little too long for what it is but it was pretty enjoyable and we laughed a lot, mostly at how bad I was doing. I ended up trading for this again and we anticipate playing it again soon.

Very random, but still a lot of fun and you do feel like you have some control over events. Feels a lot like an economic version of Risk. If you want a euro game with some direct confrontation, you could easily do a lot worse than this.

A fun game of cut-throat airline competition. I've had a few games degenerate into standoffs between two powerful players until someone gets a bit of luck drawing chips which allows them to go on an agressive expansion spree to win the game. There's more luck involved than is initially apparent.

It shows some American wargame company roots, but not as much as you might think. The special events of the advanced game are very fun, but I discard the Fuel Hike tokens, which draw out the game too long.

One of the AH games desperately in need of retooling & reprinting - it's a multi-player economic wargame disguised as an airlines game. There's some great ideas here that need more playtesting & development.

I enjoyed it - but not my family. Seems like a financial wargame. I liked the transition from growth phase where you are trying to build up your warchest and acquire open areas to the conflict phase where you try to take away others locations.
Scales well since with few players part of the map is out of play.

Surprisingly decent game. I wasn't expecting much given that it is an Avalon Hill game from right before they went bankrupt. Interesting tension between taking the safe but slow expansion route or gambling on hostile takovers; of course towards the end you have no choice but to conduct takeovers to win. What keeps it from being more than just "decent" for me is the amount of luck in the income phase. If one player lucks into several turns where they get substantially more income than the other players (because their chits are drawn), they can pull away and it becomes very difficult to catch them without a combined, concerted effort by all the other players and that just makes the game drag on way too long and sucks all the fun out of it. When the income draws are evenly distributed though, the game can be very tense and entertaining. Unfortunately, it seems like the distribution gets skewed more often than not. So, it's merely "OK" for me: I'll play it if someone really wants to, but I won't suggest it myself and I see no reason to keep it in my collection.

While I found the game a bit light (lots of luck to be had in the game), I definitely had a good time.

This is a fine game. I played it repeatedly on a ski trip once, when it was the only game I'd brought, but it just doesn't stand out, and there's always something better to play.

I have played it a few times - it might actually deserve a better rating - there appears to be some subtlety that becomes more apparent with repeated playings.
