Ticket to Ride Board Game

Ticket to Ride Board Game

Ticket to Ride is a cross-country train adventure. Players collect cards of various types of train cars that enable them to claim railway routes connecting cities throughout North America. The longer the routes, the more points they earn. Additional points come to those who can fulfill their Destination Tickets by connecting two distant cities, and to the player who builds the longest continuous railway. So climb aboard for some railroading fun and adventure. Contains 1 Board map of North American train routes; 240 Colored Train Cars; 110 Train Car cards; 30 Destination Tickets; 1 Summary Card; 5 Wooden Scoring Markers; 1 Rules booklet; and 1 Days of Wonder Online Access Number.

I've played this game and I own it:

All Aboard! This is currently my favorite game in our cupboard. I can't get enough. Easy enough to understand and have fun, but with just enough strategy and intrigue to keep the game alive. I prefer to play with 3-4 players. I find this optimal. Five players makes the game a little too long between turns, but two players makes it far too simple to obtain the routes you most need.

We only played the Christmas ABC game tonight, but it was fun and funny! I have 3 more games and quizzes that I will take to my parents' house on Saturday. Thanks again!!
