Description Edit | History

With elegantly simple gameplay, Ticket to Ride can be learned in under 15 minutes, while providing players with intense strategic and tactical decisions every turn. Players collect cards of various types of train cars they then use to claim railway routes in North America. The longer the routes, the more points they earn. Additional points come to those who fulfill Destination Tickets – goal cards that connect distant cities; and to the player who builds the longest continuous route.

"The rules are simple enough to write on a train ticket – each turn you either draw more cards, claim a route, or get additional Destination Tickets," says Ticket to Ride author, Alan R. Moon. "The tension comes from being forced to balance greed – adding more cards to your hand, and fear – losing a critical route to a competitor."

Ticket to Ride continues in the tradition of Days of Wonder's big format board games featuring high-quality illustrations and components including: an oversize board map of North America, 225 custom-molded train cars, 144 illustrated cards, and wooden scoring markers.

Since its introduction and numerous subsequent awards, Ticket to Ride has become the BoardGameGeek epitome of a "gateway game" -- simple enough to be taught in a few minutes, and with enough action and tension to keep new players involved and in the game for the duration.

Part of the Ticket to Ride series.

7 Ticket to Ride Map & Expansion Randomizer
Can't decide which Ticket to Ride map to play? Not sure if you want to play with Alvin & Dexter or the Dice Expansion? Constantly forgetting that Europe 1912 includes the Depots & Warehouses expansion for all the maps? Well worry and forget no more! Included in this PDF are 21 double-sided cards that don't only function as randomizers to help you choose which map and/or expansion to play with, but also includes a summary of the rules for each expansion so those little nuances that differentiate them don't get forgotten. Question such as "What happens to discarded tickets?" and "What can I use Locomotives for?" are detailed explicitly in a neat summary of the map or expansion. As per usual, please respond on this thread with any comments, corrections, or suggestions. For those...
