Make your way around the city using the famous elevated "El" trains to visit places of interest and return to the State/Lake station before anyone else. Strategize your optimal route by utilizing trains and buses, but be prepared for detour. Keep an eye out for stations undergoing renovation, and be sure to carry enough Transit Tokens to pay for your fare! And of course, you're not the only person riding the trains. Other travelers might just throw your plans for a Loop! Pack your bag, gather your friends, and set out on your Chicago Transit Adventure!

    EL The Chicago Transit Adventure

    This is a very fun game. The pieces, cards and board are well made. Some locations are hard to locate on the board, but not a big issue. I think tweaking some rules could help the game, but overall this is a fun play.

    Great fun!

    Highly recommended quality product. We had four players and two had played previously so there was a very short learning curve but seemed pretty easy to pick up. Also, easy to adjust rules to extend or contract the length of the game. We really enjoyed playing and will definitely play again!

    Awesome game

    I am getting back into playing board games and wanted something new. This is unique to Chicago and is very quick to learn! I learned the first game though that the potential to ruin friendships is high if you close the right stations (or have the ones you need closed!) We had so much fun playing, would definitely recommend.

    So much fun to play! It’s designed really well, both aesthetically and in terms of playability. We loved playing, planning our routes, and determining which type of Chicagoan we must have been based on our destinations!

    Love this game

    This was an absolute blast to play !! It could even be good for out of towners. Do not let the instructions intimidate you. Once you get started it's quite easy. Just take 10 mins to read through all the instructions. HIGHLY recommend this game.

    Great game!

    This is a very enjoyable and unpredictable game. Once you get the rules down, with two players it really only takes 5-7 turns to play a whole game and almost every game is super close. I highly recommend this game.

    Great game. Our 7 kids, aged 21-12, love playing, as do we. Perfect for anyone familiar with riding the el during these pandemic times.

    Visiting Chicago and having a chance to play this wonderful board game so exhilarating I just had to buy it and bring it home with me.
