Put away that gold pocket watch, you railway tycoon, you’ve got work to do! You are racing to claim railway lines all over North America. But you don’t want just any routes–you want the most lucrative lines possible. The longest routes and the biggest cities carry a higher payload. Don’t wait too long or other railroad barons will block your routes. Is it time to claim your route or acquire more train cars? Knowing that is the ticket to winning the game.
Ticket to Ride is a simple game of completing railroad routes to score points. Players collect different cards that represent various types of train cars used to complete the route. Players also receive Destination Tickets, or goal cards, that connect different cities. Each turn players either draw more train cards, claim a route or get an additional ticket. Players must decide which action to choose at the best time to score the most points and win the game.
