Ticket to Ride!

Finally I got myself a copy of one of the new-classic Gateway Games, Ticket to Ride. Along with the "USA 1910" expansion which Boardgamegeek assures me is essential.

I've played TtR at least once before, I think. Or at least something like it.

Talita and I played 2 games; once with the "1910" Destinations (again, searching around BGG, this seemed to be the best suggestion for 2-player low-aggression games), and once with the "Mega Game".
She won the first, I won the second, but both games were pretty fun.
Sorry not much more exciting detail to report, but it is a solid game I hope to play more of.

Ticket to Ride gets a GRRRR on the arbitrary Ossian rating scale.

  1. I'm a big Ticket to Ride fan. When I bought it, the rulebook included a free online version, but you have to pay after a few games to get a permanent license. It's one of those "family fun" games that you can take at any strategic level you care to. Lots of replayability, which I consider the most important trait in a game.

  2. Sure, especially with the 1910 expansion, there are at least 4 different ways to initially set up the game ("re-balanced original", "1910", "Big Cities", "Mega"). The small-sized cards from the basic box are still in the shrinkwrap.
