One of the most popular games ever designed, Ticket to Ride is a simple yet strategic game of connecting cities in the United States with trains.
With elegantly simple gameplay, Ticket to Ride can be learned in 3 minutes, while providing players with intense strategic and tactical decisions every turn. Players collect cards of various types of train cars they then use to claim railway routes in North America. The longer the routes, the more points they earn. Additional points come to those who fulfill Destination Tickets – goal cards that connect distant cities; and to the player who builds the longest continuous route.
"The rules are simple enough to write on a train ticket – each turn you either draw more cards, claim a route, or get additional Destination Tickets," says Ticket to Ride author, Alan R. Moon. "The tension comes from being forced to balance greed – adding more cards to your hand, and fear – losing a critical route to a competitor."
Ticket to Ride continues in the tradition of Days of Wonder's big format board games featuring high-quality illustrations and components including: an oversize board map of North America, 225 custom-molded train cars, 144 illustrated cards, and wooden scoring markers.
Since its introduction and numerous subsequent awards, Ticket to Ride has become the BoardGameGeek epitome of a "gateway game" -- simple enough to be taught in a few minutes, and with enough action and tension to keep new players involved and in the game for the duration.
I would have preferred more destination cards or less gray tiles that can be bought from any colour. Instead its a game thats more luck than skill in my opinion. But still a good game
A game all the family can play
Love this game.
A great intro game for older kids.
Bought this as a present for my parents, to replace their first board. They play it so much that it was looking a little worse for wear (especially after an incident with a cup of tea...) Fantastic game.
