As someone who was born and raised in the city and now call the suburbs of Chicago home, I found an upcoming game catching my eye. In El: The Chicago Transit Adventure, from Transit Tees, players will traverse the City of the Broad Shoulders by way of elevated train and bus lines. The game is for two to eight players, ages 13+, plays in around 30 to 60 minutes, and will carry an MSRP of $40.00 when it arrives in December.
From Transit Tees:
Welcome to Chicago! There’s lots to do in The Windy City, and you have a full itinerary. Make your way around the city using the famous elevated “El” trains to visit places of interest and return to the State/Lake station before anyone else. Strategize your optimal route by utilizing trains and buses, but be prepared for detour. Keep an eye out for stations undergoing renovation, and be sure to carry enough Transit Tokens to pay for your fare! And of course, you’re not the only person riding the trains. Other travelers might just throw your plans for a Loop! Pack your bag, gather your friends, and set out on your Chicago Transit Adventure!
