On this week's episode of TableGamerWeekly, we had a good discussion about the 1910 expansion for Ticket to Ride. We definitely praised the expansion for not deviating from a formula that already works great in the original game. However, we were also a little let down by how little the expansion changes. One thing that we really agreed on was how much of a difference full sized cards make. It is also a nice change of pace to try the different game types that are included. By combining the different sets of cards (Original, 1910, Big Cities, Mystery Train), and playing with either the Globetrotter or Longest Route Bonus (or both), you can greatly extend the re-playability of the game. Because of Ticket to Ride's simplicity, just changing little things can make a major difference in the flow of play.

Overall, we decided that 1910 may be a better investment than Ticket to Ride Europe for players of the original game looking for more. Although Europe adds some new mechanics, they don't improve the game very much, and really only make it more complicated. Head on over to http://www.tablegamerweekly.com to hear the rest of our opinions.

Do you have a version of this podcast that is available outside of iTunes? I want to listen at work and have a Linux machine.
Thanks,

We also have a regular RSS feed, or you can just download the MP3 directly from the episode page. Right now we only do an MP3 version, but if there was enough demand for a more open standard, like Ogg Vorbis, we could release a second version as well.
