Ticket To Ride
Ticket to Ride is an absolute must own, a multi-award-winning cross country rail game that pits players against each other in an "around the world in eighty days" style race.
Players are tasked with seeing as many cities in North America as possible buy collecting coloured carriage cards, combining them to claim rail lines and scoring the routes based on the length of the track.
Players can score extra points by completing their individual Destination Tickets or by building the longest continual track.
I have lost count the number of times the Gamez Knight Team have played Ticket To Ride, it a regular go-to game, especially when we are introducing new people to board games.
Everyone plays it differently, I often find myself forgoing my Destination Tickets and trying to build the longest possible track much to my oppositions dismay.
This game is simple enough that the rules can be grasped in minutes, challenging enough that it will have veterans on edge the entire game as they balance the greed of wanting more cards in hand, dastardly urge to block other players and the anxiety that someone else may claim their route.
A fantastic gateway into games and a challenge for experienced players, a must-have in any games night!
