Description:

In the board game Destinations, each player competes to most efficiently and economically fly their 2 private jets to destination cities around the world.

The game’s core is a variant of the classic vehicle routing problem, with a constantly changing cost state due to the changing locations of opponents’ planes.

Game mechanisms:
-- point-to-point movement
-- route optimization
-- simple economy
-- minor randomness during gameplay (bad weather).

The game has:
-- significant player interaction
-- short player downtime
-- the same relatively simple gameplay rules for all player counts
-- a highly variable setup.
