Play Matt: Pan Am Review

Decks separated, I explain the game. You need route cards...

“Let’s play the aeroplane game,” I say. Despite having been born twenty years after it’s collapse, my daughter knows the Pan Am logo well enough to get the right box off the shelf. Or maybe it’s the sleek blue and white retro-styling of the cover and components. The interior is less inspiring: drab player colours and two card decks in black and dark blue that I shuffle together by accident every time.

Hold on Matt - "the interior is less inspiring" - "drab player colours" WHAT? Have to take issue with you there. :) This is one of the most beautiful and thematic graphic design jobs of recent years; the colours are perfect for the theme and the attention to detail in the graphic design is wonderful. Those player colours aren't supposed to be bright, they're supposed to fit perfectly with all the other colour and design choices, and they do.

Great review.
I've been 'just about to buy this game' roughly three times already, now more than ever.

Based on the widly diverse voices singing its praise, this is like the one Prospero Hall game that feels like people will be playing it in 10 years, despite the fun novelty of the others.

I think that's probably true. It's a damn good fit for mass market, hopefully it remains available.

After several plays I found myself wishing for a bit more teeth than the game can offer and kind of cooled on it, but it's still a fun ride.
