This may be a new addiction

After the board game sessions during the last two trips to Denver, I broke down and bought 10 Days in the USA, 10 Days in Europe, and Ticket to Ride Europe. My prime gaming buddies are the nieces (ages 10 and 12), who have decided I have the coolest games. We just played TTR-E this evening though we had to truncate the game for bedtime--it being TV-Free week, the kids are wanting post-homework, pre-bedtime entertainment. Sister-in-law joined us for a 4-player game. Older niece won thanks to good contracts, younger niece hit her wall before the last round when she was lagging in the scoring, SIL and I had respectable showings.

10 Days in Europe is....different from Europa Tour. I'm not sure, but I'd say I prefer Europa Tour. I liked the ferry routes instead of this "any two countries connected by the same ocean", and I'd love the read a "real" board gamer's analysis of the differences (if any) caused by the different weighting of the various cards. But hey, it's still fun, as is 10 Days in the USA.
