Montreal Metro Board Game
Sent my way by Twitter user @andrewsalzberg, here’s another board game based on a transit system - this time, Montreal’s Metro! (Readers may remember this post about “The London Game”, a board game based on the London Underground.)

If you want to work midnight to eight, by yourself on a bus, and challenge somebody for a fare … versus sitting in a booth and calling someone if someone doesn’t pay a fare — it’s a very, very complicated issue
