TICKET TO RIDE BOARD GAME GUIDE

Ticket To Ride Board Game is one of the most played and beloved titles of all time. There are many board games in the world but if you have to boil them down to just an elite few, this would be one of them. The game is incredibly elegant in its simplicity but will still provide a rich and robust play experience over and over again. You only have a few actions to take each turn in pursuit of your secret goals, but that's enough to make you have to attack the map with cunning strategy and determination.

You are a train tycoon with your sites set on building a great rail system across the United States. Players sit around a board of the US, with many empty possible routes connecting cities across the country. Each game everyone has a secret route they need to complete and only you know what you need to do. Each turn you can either take different colored train cards or build routes using them. Complete more goals and build more impressive routes for victory.
