Overview

Playing 10 Days in Europe involves charting a ten-day (or ten-step) travel course across the countries of Europe. Travel is either on foot, by train, by boat, or by plane.

As countries are connected using these various modes of transportation, users will eventually learn the names, relative locations, and shapes of the countries of Europe, though no prior knowledge of geography is required to have fun.

The game mechanics are a little like the classic family game Racko, though there are considerably more strategic factors involved, and the game components are much more visually appealing.

10 Days in Europe is a fun, family-friendly game that teaches without being pushy. Play involves 2 to 4 players, ages 10 and up. It takes about 10 minutes to learn the rules and game play lasts between 15 and 25 minutes, making it an ideal filler for short time periods. More time can certainly be spent with this fun game if you play consecutive games in one sitting.

The rules for 10 Days in Europe are simple enough that playing the first time is fun and fast (our first game lasted about 20 minutes, after 10 minutes of reading the rules).

There are subtle ways to improve your game strategy as you play more often, making repeat play interesting. One of the only flaws in this game is that like the game Racko, occasionally the random way the initial cards are drawn can result in one player having a large advantage over another player that can be hard to overcome despite the best strategic play possible.

Playing several rounds in a row can make this occasional problem more palatable. This game was a winner of the Mensa Select competition, and well deserves the honor, as a fun, fast, family-friendly game that also manages to teach without being boring.
