Around The World In 80 Days Board Game


Drake says: "In Around The World In 80 Days, players follow the path of those who took this legendary Jules Verne trip around the world. Do it less than 80 days and faster than your opponents and win the game. Win or lose, all will enjoy this game as you travel by train, boat, elephant, and balloon around the world."


John says: "Around The World In 80 Days is an excellent gateway game for families and gamers wanting something fun and light. It's a excellent fast-playing game for 5-6 players too! Fans of Ticket To Ride will love this one."


Michael Rieneck


As in Jules Verne's famous story, the players are members of a London club at the beginning of the 20th century who bet each other on a round the world journey: the player who can complete the journey in less that 80 days will win the bet and the accolades of his comrades. To accomplish this, the players will have to make good use of train and ship travel as they move from place to place. Along the way, they may have the opportunity to speed their travels with balloons and elephants. However, they must also avoid the over-zealous detective, who will slow their progress if he can catch up with them for interrogations in the places they visit. Naturally, events outside the control of the players may also play a part.
