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”. It’s now your turn to gather old friends for a new wager of your own. The stakes: $1 Million in a winner-takes-all competition. The objective: to see which of you 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.
One of the most popular games ever designed, Ticket to Ride is a simple yet strategic game of connecting cities in the United States with trains. On their turn, players simply draw train cards, claim routes on the board, or draw more destination tickets. Players must balance drawing cards into their hand with claiming routes before opponents in this friendly, yet competitive board game. The rules can be taught in only a few minutes, but games are varied enough to give the game unlimited replayability. With scores of plastic trains and a beautiful board, this is a game you’ll find yourself playing time and time again with all ages.
