I was playing, a game about a train,
When I’d finished, I hoped to play again,
The colorful carriages and the cards so pretty,
Came with rules without the nitty-gritty.

All you have to do, on your turn to play,
Is to claim a train line, with coloured cards or say,
“I want tickets, or cards I desire,”
Follow a strategy, to help your score chuff higher.

Each route you claim, earns you numbered points,
Whoever has the most, the game a winner anoints,
For tickets not completed, subtract some from your score,
Until the game’s completion, no winner is assured.

For the longest train line, a bonus will be earned,
On this rule alone, many games have turned,
For two to five players, with versions galore,
This fun and simple game, I give an 80 score!

Awesome, but I hate to tell you this - the Beatles did a song about this game years ago!
