El Game

My 15 year old grandson is a board game fanatic. He coerced me into purchasing the El game as a Hanukkah gift for him. It was delivered in the evening and I texted my grandson of it's arrival. The following afternoon, he showed up pleading with me to open the game and play with him. What was a grandmother to do? Of course, we did and we loved it. He takes the Blue Line to school during the week. I haven't been on public transportation for 50 years, favoring my sporty wheels, but in playing the game it all came back to me. He is coming this afternoon after school for a rematch -- I beat him first time around.

El trains on the bus lines!

Bought this for my board game loving husband. We played it last night and ran into some hiccups with the instructions but overall the game is fun and even the novice board game players had fun. It was interesting that we could take the el train off the tracks and onto the bus lines. Great way to familiarize yourself with some of the more obscure El stops
