This is a very well-presented game of Rummy, with a sliiiiiight chance at screwage. The player interaction is almost completely an afterthought in the two-person game, so I would recommend this strictly for three to five players unless you have the TTR:Switzerland expansion. Four players is probably ideal, as it gives a decent chance at player interaction with minimal downtime. If folks agonize on their turns for more than say, five seconds, a five player game can be kind of a drag.

The game looks great, and it's a great example of a board game with a map that is not Risk. This matter more than you think when you're playing with someone whose most exotic gaming experience has been Yahtzee or Phase 10. The little plastic trains give all the OCD folks something to play with, and the scoring track looks nice and is easy to work with, now that current editions have it going to 100--the original was 80, because the designer is an idiot.
