Ticket to Ride
An easy Family Game or Party Game. Ticket to Ride is an easy game to teach, quick to setup, plenty of strategy and fun with lots of players!
The objective is to complete as many routes as possible with trains. Each player has 45 train cars and collects colored train cards corresponding to the part of the route they are trying to accomplish. Each turn players can either pick up colored train cars, or build a track (One point to the next) on the map, or choose new routes to try to complete. Whoever has the highest amount of points after the last round wins.
The Final round begins when one player has 0, 1 or 2 train cars left.
Have been playing this game for over 3 years. First impression is that it is a simple fun game. I quickly added to my pile of 2 player favorites. When playing with 2 players, I have fun achieving more routes and thereby scoring more points. When playing with 4 or 5 players its all about just finishing the routes I have and then if i have more trains then go on to build the longest train line to get the 10 point bonus.
