There are so many board games out there that use trains as a form of transport to connect different cities. However, a new method of transport is available is now boarding (get it... board game), and you can create a worldwide airline empire, managing a combination of flights, fuel and customers in Connecting Flights the new Kickstarter from Bazzite Games.

What I was delighted about seeing is that Connecting Flights is not just an all-out warpath in earning more money than your opponent. It is, but it is also so much more! Providing a competitive, and cooperative mode too.

In the competitive mode, each player is tasked with becoming the most successful airline bringing in the most dollar. Players work their way up from simply organising one flight to ultimately controlling planes and airports to allow passengers to travel around the world. You must be pretty organised, as you will need to ensure that everything is flowing smoothly, meaning reorganising flights and keeping the customers happy.

Events will be in your favour and against your favour. Sometimes providing benefits for you and also causing havoc for your airline. With events such as a pandemic stopping all flights from taking place, thus affecting your income.

The cooperative version is only accessible for two players, which is a brain teaser with customisable difficulty. Each round, new passengers will appear on the board all looking to head off to their desired destination. The more customers you have, the more difficult the puzzle becomes. However the more you grow your network, the more routes will become accessible for you.

It is incredible that the game offers two different experiences depending on the game mode. So whether you want to cooperatively drop off some customers with strategy, or sink your opponent's empire competitively - there is an aspect in this game for many a board gamer.

The game is for up to 1-5 players, so I am absolutely delighted I will get the opportunity to give this a go solo without being concerned that my opponent is going to try and sink my empire. There are too many mean board gamers out there that do not like to play fair!

The Kickstarter has already been funded, so it has been a flying success for board gamers. But there are still lots of stretch goals to access including more cooperative scenarios and many more to be announced in the next 27 days.

Now that we have planes and trains, what other method of transport would be good to incorporate in to a board game? I am thinking Oregon Trail wagon-style.
