Well, I'm kind of biased but even after so many games of Airlines Europe I still wouldn't turn down a game. It's the right amount of luck mixed with tense, tactical gameplay and easily playable in like one hour. In my opinion, the shortened playtime, the new share track system, the 'exclusion' of the track cards and the great atmosphere created by Christian Fiore's graphics and the bits make it superior to its predecessors.

Stefan Feld games are balanced and mathematically elegant while being obtuse, emotionally detached, and mechically inelegant. The most overrated designer of modern games. The King of JASE.

My only complaint is the fiddly scoring at the end of each round. Otherwise I loved this game.

It shouldn't be any surprise that I like this game. It is a re-envisioning of Union Pacific which I like a great deal.
Airplanes or trains? Which do I like better? I really don't know yet. I just know that they both hit a sweet spot for me.

It is Ticket to Ride with a stock market. Excellent production values and game play. It is a simplified, streamlined version of Union Pacific, but I am going to keep my Union Pacific. Still this game deserves a 10!

A worthy return to the original theme. We have always been playing Union Pacific with a house rule to make the acquisition of UP shares less of a race and more of a choice; this is fixed in AE, you have to make sacrifices to get the big shares. Game works perfectly, a joy to experience.

Although I haven't won a game yet- we play 3 mainly and my wife has won every single game- I will never say no to a game, even after just playing. Ok well I might say no at 3 am.
The sign for me of a great game.
It takes the action choice simplicity of Ticket to Ride (I'm not au fait with the previous incarnations) and adds two buckets of tension .

Absolutely love this game after 3 plays with family. Great stock accumulation/appreciation game. Only regret is I wish I had bought it sooner.

Wow! What a fun game! And with cute little airplanes, too! Buy stocks in airline companies and make new airline routes. But when you make those routes if you don't have the most routes you are only helping your opponent. And did I mention there are 11 companies in competition? Lots to do and not enough time. Great game!

Why isn't this rated higher?

Gee, you see bloatware like Caverna rated higher? Caverna is nothing more then a $100.00 group activity, AE is a classic, solid game.

The two issues with the game?

The red and orange planes can look alike on a crowded board, or under certain lighting. Take a black permanent black Sharpie and circle the orange planes's cowling. I can see how putting a ring around the plane isn't worth the effort to the publisher, would be tough to do. Just wished when issues like this pop up, they had to know during test play, add a line in the back of the rule book to "fix" it. This is on the same level as putting on stickers. So amazing people balk at slightly modifying a game, even if common sense dicatates it, it is as if it loses some value. They seem to want permission from the publisher. Hmmm, playability vs some imaged value lost.

The end of round scoring is a little messy.

A fantastic game. Airlines Europe is Alan Moon's finest iteration of this game to date. It is an effective blend of a stock game and a route building game in one beautifully packaged experience. I love the purple box and artistic look of Airlines right down to the little plastic airplanes! This game has removed the need for me to play either Ticket to ride or Acquire as it represents a better version of both games in one experience. I can always get this to the table with my elite gaming friends or my casual ones. This will be a part of my collection for a long long time.

my uber-gaming game collecting addict hubby snuck this remake into the house undetected and we played it over Christmas break... i have won this game six times in a row....and i really enjoy it - it ranks high with 7W... but not just because i'm very successful in it (the scoring tends to be pretty close) the game is a bit stressful (read: a nail biter) because players don't precisely know how they are doing point-wise until the final reveal. it's similar to ticket to ride, but with the twist of 'stock ownership' and the spin that it is cooperative whilst being competitive. high replay-ability and excitement factors earn this a ten for me at this point in time... would play it anytime!

Always loved Union Pacific and this just perfects it. Awesome. Minor complaint; the orange and red planes are just a little too close in color but it's easily worked around.
