Players 2 - 4

Ten Days in the Americas is one of 5 games in a series of games about traveling. The goal is to plan a 10 day trip linking locations by walking, flying, or sailing to the next location.  In some versions players can also drive to locations. The trip must start and end in a country.  A map game board of the Americas is placed in the center of the play area.  At the start of the game players randomly select tiles and place them in any day of the trip they would like. Once in place the tiles cannot be rearranged. When play begins players choose one of three tiles that are face up or randomly draw a face down tile. Next they can replace and discard any tile in their player rack with the selected or drawn tile. Discarded tiles are played face up and are available for other players to take and add to their trip plans.  The first player to put together a ten-day trip with good connections wins.

Although not pertinent to game play, each country tile includes some interesting facts about that country.  The facts include capital, population, and size in square miles.
