Ticket to Ride is a cross-country train adventure in which players collect and play matching train cards to claim railway routes connecting cities throughout North America. The longer the routes, the more points they earn.

- Claiming a Route between two cities on the map
- Successfully completing a Continuous Path of routes between two cities listed on your Destination Ticket(s)
- Or by completing the Longest Continuous Path of routes.
- Points are lost if you do not successfully complete the route given on your Destination Ticket(s)

Ticket to Ride is one of my favourite board games. It's fun for different age groups and is easy to learn. It can be really competitive. I haven't had a chance to play the newer versions like Asia or India maps but I would highly recommend the Ticket to Ride Europe if you've got a smaller group of people.

We've had the Europe version for a few years now and we really enjoy it, be it as a two-player game or more. We just bought the North America version for my in-laws who keep saying that it's so much fun, they should buy it. As usual, great price and very efficient service from Well.ca!
