What a clever expansion. The real genius of this simple pack of cards is the backs of them are a different color. Players know when one of these cards are on top and it encourages them to draw more destination cards in the hopes of pulling a bonus card. Days of Wonder now has this expansion available for download, so if you weren't lucky enough to get a real copy then head over to their website and donwload it. I like what this brings to TTR so much it's a little higher rating the TTR by itself.

At first I thought "whatever", but after playing a few games with this expansion it does add to the game. If you enjoy TtR, pick this expansion up if you can.

Nice addition to the original. the new cards add some additional ways to get points...but they dont always help you win! They do increase the destination drawing...which helps you get screwed more!
Nice to have...just get them cheap!

Yes people, of course the card backs are different, that's intentional: It's a nice incentive to draw extra tickets and it works for our game group. But it doesn't make it a better game so you could say it is non essential.

We use the blank card as a joker. It may represent any of the other characters at the end of the game, but only one that is not used by any player. It is worth half a point - a tie-breaker so to speak - if it remains unused.
We remove one engineer* to keep the original routes/characters ratio of the expansion.

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/90662

*addendum 20060109:
The engineer card is starting to annoy me somewhat. It stalls the game and the browsing through the deck is too much of an added advantage as you could memorize where the next character cards are towards the top of the deck.
I'm considering removing both of them. Or either giving them a new function, but what? Maybe as a one time grant to draw 5 tickets instead of 3? Any other ideas?... Drop me a message!

Not sure if it makes the game any better as i already love the game as it is.The choice to draw tickets is pretty obvious if you see a purple backed ticket on the top of the pile cause you could get something good.

Doesn't add much to original game, but renews it a little. Also, the cards in my french edition of Ticket to Ride (Les Aventuriers du Rail) has a different back than that of the extension. I had to modify the extension rules in order to play the extended game. My rules are as follow:
make 2 stacks, one with original tickets and one with expansion tickets. When a player chooses to take new tickets during his turn he takes 2 from the standard and 1 from the expansion. He can keep 1, 2 or all 3 of his tickets.

This expansion is great because it has increased the drawing of destination tickets. Probably won't see the table again since I got the 1910 expansion which replaces the small cards.

A free expansion for a great game, what's not to love about it! Above all a subtle expansion that adds a fun detail.

I was afraid I wouldn't be able to get this anymore, but unexpectedly still managed to grab it when I found a discarded november Game Trade magazine hidden deep in the recesses of a games store... Yay me! :-)

The expansion improves on the original by giving some extra scoring options. Having "Mystery Train" included makes drawing new tickets a more viable strategy as you are less likely to get stuck with something that you just cannot use.
