In this game you try to give everyone a seat they wish on the plane. You take turns by selecting a card from the pool and placing people in the plane as indicated here. Doesn't fit? Overbooked! (Minus points)

Once the plane of one of the players is completely filled, OR one colour is run out, scoring begins! This is based on the positioning of the colours. Red wants to travel in pairs of two. Whites are babies and they need to be surrounded by other colours. Blue, Green and Orange make only the largest group count.


When I first played it I was very tired, but amazed by how simple this is. Don't get me wrong, it is a brainy puzzle, but it wasn't at all hard to start playing. For 'frequent flyers' they added some advanced rules and cards, I really like it when a game comes with some form of expansion!

I love love love it's table presence!! They did a very good job designing this game, the boards look awesome and the way the game plays and scores is smooth and a whole lot of fun!


A copy of this game was provided to me by Jumbo Games for the purpose of writing this review. My opinion however remains my own.
