Game of the Month
July 2004
Our expectations were not really high when we first played this game which looks like a bigger cousin of TRANSAMERICA. But then the game quickly got us into it's grip with addictive qualities. Is it the game material, with it's beautiful plastic trains, is it the intelligent card management, is it the ongoing race with the other players, which is always in the open? This is a nervewracking game, especially when your winning route is about to be destroyed by another player. TICKET TO RIDE is a good example for a game that does not break new ground but that becames a greater whole through the sum of it's parts.
