Secondly, which one of the many released versions would over all be good for 2 players. Though honestly I'm not looking for an expansion to a brand new purchase.

Big Cities makes the game tighter because it concentrates tickets around a couple of large cities.

Classic works just as well though =)

The United Kingdom and Pennsylvania map is pretty neat if you want to check out something slightly different.

I'd suggest Big Cities for two player.

Also, please note that your trains are bigger than the standard sized train s and thus are VERY tight on a standard sized board (as would come with any expansions).

Thanks guys for all your help, one last question. I hope!

The 10th anniversary edition is the one that I have, so size differences in the models won't be any problem. It sounds like big cities will be the best competitive game between two players.

Which one would be the easiest for first time players?
PS when I say which one I mean of the versions of the 10th anniversary would be the best for a new player: classic, USA 1910, big cities, or Mega.

Restricted to the Anniversary edition, I'd say that the Big Cities variant is best for two. Mega on the other hand is great for any number of players, but with two the Big Cities is a little better.

Outside of that, I'm quite partial to Nordic Countries. Add the India/Switzerland expansion and you have everything you need for 2 (and 3) players. All the other maps are just a bit too open with 2, and really need at least one more player before they hit their perfect spot.

Nordic Countries + India and Switzerland = Best for 2 or 3.
