Default Pan Am Board Game

I went to Target today and saw a Pan Am board game. It got added to my cart pretty fast. We're gonna play it later today.

I have been playing Monopoly: My Little Pony edition. I told my daughter when I got home, "You owe me this."

I've played it twice and really like it! Be prepared to be thoroughly confused playing your first time. It doesn't click until about halfway through the game.

I would recommend watching this video for how to play and just refer to the instructions as needed. They are long winded and I found other new players to lose attention if you read it aloud.

Just ordered from Target. Not sure I could convince my fiancé to play.

I suppose you could play online via FaceTime or Skype if everyone had the game.

Well, it is a little complicated but after 2-3 rounds, you're good to go.

I read the rules. The PDF download has some errata BTW. And after looking at Board Game Geek forums I think I’m good to go. The lead game designer is on there quite a bit clarifying the rules. Can’t wait to try it.

My board game experience are games of the Avalon Hill Military sims genre, so this game is cake.

Looks like Target lowered to price to $29.74. A bargain at the release price of $35.

Anybody else played yet and wish to give an AAR? I convinced my fiancé to start a game yesterday.

We only played the first round--using it as an instructional to get familiar with game mechanics and such. We'll finish it up on the weekend. She is convinced you have to know airplanes to understand the game--which you do not. If you do though, it just adds to the cool vibe of the game.

I have actually played this a lot -- like probably a dozen times already. My 7 year old loves it and asks to play it everyday. It really surprises me because it is an extremely complicated game for a 7 year old but she understands it well.

So you definitely need to play more than one round. It probably takes about 3 rounds until you really get the hang of it.

The routes that Pan Am expands on are valuable. You should try to claim those routes, especially early on, when you'll want cash to buy stock at more affordable prices. The jet is honestly a waste since you can only get it in Round 6 or unless a special event occurs. The directive cards are also something that can be overlooked. There's a lot of good directive cards, especially when you have the sell any route to Pan Am which can then make the jet worth it. Buying airports early on make sense since you will recover that in income and then some but make less and less sense as the game goes on.
