TICKET TO RIDE
(Anton, Eric, Walt)

Dan had to leave, but Walt had finished with the Masonic function he had been participating in and watched the end of the San Juan game. We couldn't leave without letting Walt play at least one game, so we decided to play Ticket to Ride again. The rules are so easy to explain that we knew we'd be up and running quickly.

Eric had been impressed by Anton's victory in our first game, so when he drew the Los Angeles-Miami ticket, he started saving up for his own 6-train links. It worked like a charm (I'm suspecting that we will start to see people build New Orleans-Houston early just to give the Los Angeles-Miami player something to think about.) Eric finished off his trains with several large builds; this is a good way to surprise your opponents by ending the game before they're ready. Eric kept all three tickets from the start of the game and didn't draw any more, but the game was over before Anton or Walt were ready. Anton was stuck with -20 from unconnected tickets. Walt saw the end coming and held off on getting any new tickets, but this deprived him of additional scoring opportunities.

Final scores:

       Track Tix Long Total
        ----- ----- ----- -----
Eric    83   33   10   126
Walt   64   27            91
Anton 53   20            73

Eric's rating: 8. As mentioned above, this is a keeper. It's a good filler because 2 players can set the game up with the knowledge that they can add up to 3 more late arrivals without taking anything away from the game.
