Why It's On The List
- Gorgeous production coupled with easy gameplay... a classic theme (trains!) coupled with a classic Rummy set-collection mechanic... just as playable with 2 as it is with 5.
Tips & Tricks:
- Playing with 3 or 5 players is MUCH more cutthroat than playing with 2 or 4, due to how crowded the board can become.
- There are a number of expansions & stand-alone versions of the game. I'm partial to the 1910 card expansion - as well as the first two map boxes (Asia &; India/Switzerland).
- The iOS app for the game is tremendous!
- Most importantly, this is an excellent "gateway" game for non-gamers.
- Here's what I wrote about Ticket to Ride for The One Hundred... and for my personal top 100 in 2005.
