Ticket to Ride is a game that requires the players to strategize and adapt their moves to the situation in order to outwit, outplay and outscore others .The game is designed for 2 – 5 players and the playtime for a round of this game would range from 30 to 60 minutes.
In Ticket to Ride, players are attempting to claim train routes between various cities. Claiming train routes rewards the player with victory points .Victory points are used to determine the final winner of the game .There are two types of cards in this game, the train card and the destination ticket card. The train card is needed to place the train token onto the map. The destination ticket card gives a train route for the player to build. The player would be able to gather more points if he successfully build the route indicated on the card. When one of the player has 3 or less train cars left, all the player would take one more turn before the game ends. The player would then calculate their points and the highest points win.
Ticket to Ride, is an easy to pick up game with minimal rules to learn and understand, thus making it a game that almost all ages can play and would enjoy.
