Game: Ticket to Ride
# of players: 2 to 5 players
Recommended: Ages 8 and up
Play time: Can take 30-60 minutes
Style: Board/card game with strategy
Ticket to Ride is about building train routes across America using the cards in your hand. Learning the ins-and-outs of play will not take long unlike other strategy games. I wouldn’t say the game is a family favorite, but we’ve enjoyed play. The game turns out differently every time and it’s possible to achieve a better score using strategy.
Ticket to Ride has expansions available, but we have never tried any of them. I also have the application on my tablet which plays much like the board game.
