    Description

    Photo Tour is an exciting game that allows you to travel and take stunning photographs of beautiful places in the USA and Canada. As a photographer, you aim to capture attractions and place their cards in your traveler's diary (player's mat). Each photo taken has a unique ability that allows you to build a card engine to make each turn more efficient.

    Players take turns and perform 1 of 4 basic actions:

    1. Planning. Choose 1 of the available attraction cards and take it in your hand to visit on one of your next moves.
    2. Movement. Choose 1 available transport dice and move across the game board by the chosen method - airplane, bus, or car.
    3. Photo Equipment Renting. Choose 1 available equipment token and place it in your travel journal to create more interesting photos during the photo shoot.
    4. Taking a photo. While in the right location, place the landmark card from your hand into your travel journal. You can enhance the photo by using camera tokens to gain additional victory points.

    The Best Part
    Build card "engine." Activate bonus effects of visited attractions or use one-time bonuses of your travel journal. Use strong combinations of bonuses to make each turn better and better.

    Why We Love It
    1. Awesome artwork. The game features 58 stunning illustrations showcasing beautiful attractions in the USA and Canada.
    2. Smooth gameplay with no downtime, as players make only one basic action at a turn.
    3. Perfect gateway game. An intuitive approach to engine-building makes the Photo Tour also deep enough for experienced gamers while still engaging for beginners.
    4. A fresh twist on racing-style gameplay. The game rewards strategic thinking over speed. Players can take up to 7 photos, but careful planning can result in a higher score with fewer photos.
