It is 1898, and construction is finally beginning on the Paris Metro, a dense tangle of subway tracks winding underneath the glamorous streets of the City of Light.Metro, nominated for the 2000 Spiel des Jahres award, casts you as one of this complicated system's pioneering builders. You connect the city's landmark stations by placing down tracks in the form of tiles. You earn points for connecting stations, and the greater the distance between stations, the more points you earn. If you can connect to one of the most high-traffic central stations, like Louvre or Saint-Michel, that route receives double the points. The player who earns the most points wins!
