In Pan Am, players compete with Pan American Airways and others to build an air-travel empire. Outbid rivals for lucrative landing rights, buy planes with longer range to reach the far corners of the world, and use insider connections to advance your interests. As you bump up against the ever-growing Pan Am, you can sell your routes to the company to earn a tidy profit, with you then using that money to invest in other growth or to purchase Pan Am stock for what's sure to be a big payout down the road.
Pan Am is a game of global strategy that spans four decades of industry-changing historic events.
Pan Am is a great game. Very unique worker placement/displacement/bidding. There are so many different things going on. Basically you are spending money to buy Pan Am stocks. During the game which is made up of 7 rounds..you are placing engineers/workers to claim routes, build airports, buy planes, claim destinations. So claiming routes and selling those routes is the key to success. The cool part of the game for me is the Pan Am expansion, where your roll the Pan Am die and see which routes it gobbles up...a bit like pandemic, where it spreads across the board. It really ramps up in the later rounds. Game ends after 7th round and winner is the player with the most stocks. Prosperohall hits the mark again :)
