Does anyone think this Ticket to Ride Europe and the 1912 Europa can be enjoyed with just 2 players? We are new to games and are enjoying Carcassonne very much thanks

My wife and I are fairly casual gamers (just play for the fun) and we really enjoy this game for 2. But I am a sucker for train games.

I haven't played the catapult and based on the reviews, I don't think I will. My wife and I play Carcassonne with either the Carcassonne: Expansion 1 – Inns & Cathedrals or Carcassonne: Expansion 2 – Traders & Builders expansions every time.

Don't overlook Macao. My wife and I love it but I do like dice. You might take a look at Stone Age also. Great game with some dice, but a GREAT GAME (sorry for shouting)

We play Stone Age far more often. It's lighter. You will like it, I guarantee it. But of course, my guarantee means absolutely nothing

Maybe, but means less brain power to play

I've played Ticket to Ride Europe both with and without the 1912 expansion. It works well both ways, but I think the game is better with the expansion. The main reason is the Big City way to play. This makes it much more likely that you'll be competing for similar cities and routes. Fun game that I'd recommend with two.

Absolutely. I own the Nordic Countries version too (which is designed for 2 or 3 players), but still enjoy Europe just as much as a 2-player game.

The 1912 expansion doesn't add a huge amount (I've never taken to the warehouses & depots) but when you've played the base game enough times it's nice to have some new tickets to keep it fresh.

My girlfriend and I play all the time. We like it but with two people we dont always get in each others way in completing our routes. So it becomes more of a race to finish your own tickets rather than a competitive game to overtake the other person routes and block them. Its fun when that happens in the two player version, it just doesnt happen every game.

So it works with two players but it would be far better with 3 or more.

Yes.

I love TTR:Europe and its 1912 Europa expansion. For those who like dice, grab the dice expansion to TTR and use it too. The game changes a bit, but in fun ways. Some people have said it makes it more casual (just roll dice and go) and some have said it makes it more strategic (holding tokens for future turns.) Both are right in my opinion.
