You've got to say that Pat really enjoys Ticket to Ride: Europe. Unfortunately for me, he's also been playing it really well recently. For this game, Pat played black and I played green. Both of us went on great expeditions across the board, but Pat showed that having the patience to gain the 8-long tunnel from Stockholm-Riga could give him a commanding lead in train points by the end of the game. Certainly he needed to use a pair of stations to get where he wanted to go, but my more spider-like track ceded the longest-track bonus to him.

Not that he needed it! I thought I was sitting pretty on my six tickets - enough to pass by his inflated score - but Pat's five tickets were worth about the same as my five. That was by far enough, and so Pat ended up the winner of this game: 145-119.

When my wife and I play TTRE (with the 1912 expansion) I added the spare trains and a couple of my copy of Union Pacific so our starting train total is 50 instead of 44. Gives us a little more manuevering room (I take the spares out with 3 or more players).
We also found that the warehouse option is a bit unbalanced...so instead of penalizing the player who gives up another depot token, we charge the player who takes the extra cards from a warehouse 1 point for every 2 cards in the WH, rounding down if there are an odd number of cards (players cannot count the pile before deciding to take the cards)...this feels a lot fairer than original rule.
