Ticket to Ride
October 2, 1900 - 28 years to the day that noted London eccentric, Phileas Fogg accepted and then won a £20,000 bet that he could travel around the world in 80 days. Now at the dawn of the century, it was time for a new impossible journey. Some old friends have gathered to celebrate Fogg's impetuous and lucrative gamble - and to propose a new wager of their own. The stakes: a million dollars in a winner-takes-all competition. The objective: to see which of them can travel by rail to the most cities in North America - in just 7 days. The journey begins immediately. Ticket to Ride
is a cross-country train adventure where players collect cards of various types of train cars that enable them to claim railway routes connecting cities throughout North America. Included in this popular game made by Days of Wonder is a detailed board, game cards, help cards, rules, train miniatures, and more! For 2-5 players, ages 8 and up. Takes 30-60 minutes to play a game. Named 2004 Game of the Year in Germany. "Once you play this game, you'll never play TransAmerica again. It's a fantastic medium-weight game - one that plays equally well with 2 to 5 players. The components are superb, the artwork is great, the game is downright fun (and nasty sometimes), and the total package is a very strong contender for the Spiel des Jahres 2004. Game play is very tight, and I found that game scores can run very close - making for an exciting game, all the way down to the finish." -Tom Vasel. "I feel safe in saying that Ticket to Ride
is an absolutely superb game and is highly recommended." -The Games Journal's Greg Aleknevicus.
