This mechanic usually requires players to pick up an item or good at one location on the playing board and bring it to another location on the playing board. Initial placement of the item can be either predetermined or random. The delivery of the good usually gives the player money to do more actions with. In most cases, there is a game rule or another mechanic that determines where the item needs to go.

Tile Placement games feature placing a piece to score VPs, with the amount often based on adjacent pieces or pieces in the same group/cluster, and keying off non-spatial properties like color, "feature completion", cluster size etc.
Fun pick-up and deliver merged with engine building, figuring out how best to map out your routes and pickups and what bonuses you unlock throughout the course of the game is very engaging. Not a ton of player interaction but since most stations need to be used by everyone it's still important to see what other players can do on their turn.
A fantastic game that never bores. The mechanichs are incredible and you never get tired of it. There's room for a lot of expansions and i truly hope that there will be some. I definetly recommend this game.
I'll be completely honest, my first time playing Maglev Metro, I wasn't hooked. I liked how the game looked, but being my first pickup and deliver game, I was a little lost in the mechanics and my first game was rather long. My second game, however, I was hooked. Once you get the concept and the rules down, it wasn't hard to come up with a decent strategy for transporting your passengers. I love the wooden meeples, the good quality metal trains, and the race to beat your opponents to each station. At first glance, the artwork was somewhat lack-luster, but after laying all of our track down, I understood why. The clear track tiles create a gorgeous route across the game board. Too much artwork beneath the tiles would definitely take away from the satisfaction of the end-game result with all the different colored tracks weaving in and out of each other. Highly recommend for any gamer.
