TREKKING THE WORLD

Explore the world as you tour exotic destinations, collect souvenirs, and plot your way across the globe.

On your turn, you must start by moving your meeple. You discard one or more trek cards to do this, moving spaces equal to the combined numbers shown on the cards. You may not move through or onto a space with another player. If you start your turn at an airport location, you may fly to any other airport before moving. If you stop your movement on a location that has a souvenir cube, you collect it. These cubes come in four different colors, with the player who has the most of a single color taking the corresponding bonus tile. These are worth points at the end of the game but can be taken from you if another player collects more of that color during the course of the game. If you collect the last souvenir from one of the regions on the map, you earn a region bonus tile.
