What’s your UK geography like? Race your opponents to place your map dominoes down. Why not take a boat to Northern Ireland, or hang onto Northumberland and Cumbria to block your opponents off from Scotland – but be careful, as lovely as Shetland or the Isle of Anglesey are, don’t get stuck there!
What’s your European geography like? Race your opponents to place your map dominoes down. Transit by train between Spain and Portugal, play Russia to open up the Baltic States, block them by hanging onto France or Germany – but be careful, as lovely as Lichtenstein or San Marino are, don’t get stuck there!
