Ticket to Ride

March 6, 2010

Ticket to Ride is a European board game that has become popular outside of Europe. The board is based of a map, depending on which version of the game you have, I have played the Europe and USA verison. The board has cities that are connected by train outlines. These trains have a color: red, orange, pink, blue, black, green, or yellow. On you turn you can either build, take train cards or destination cards. To start you are given 3 destinations which you must complete. To complete a destination card you draw cards that correspond to the color train segment you wanna build. Your destinations will have two cities on them that you must connect together with a train. Players take turns tring to complete there destinations. Often your opponent will take a segment that you need and this is what really makes the game good.
