What is it like to play a game?
Point-to-Point Movement: At its heart, Highways & Byways is about traveling and exploration. You do this by moving around on the board along fixed points, like in Risk or Pandemic.
Card Drafting: This is how you plot your course. All players take turn drawing their destinations from a small pool of cards. This will feel familiar to Ticket to Ride players.
Variable Player Powers: Every player gets a unique car that comes with special abilities. These abilities range from immunity from certain bad events to moving faster on certain days.
Hand Management: Are you more afraid of mechanical failure or bad weather? Each player has the ability to determine their fate by deciding what to plan for – and what not to plan for!
Action Point Allowance System: Driving all day long can be a hassle. You can take breaks to swap out your Event Cards and improve your chances for the days to come.
