Game of the Week: Ticket to Ride

Ticket to Ride on Board Game Geek

Ticket to Ride is an easy-to-learn board game for 2-5 players. You play a railroad baron attempting to connect cities together with your railroad. At the end of the game, the player with the most points is the winner. To get points, you may perform 1 of 3 actions each turn: 1) you can draw cards; 2) you can cash in cards of the same color to claim train routes; 3) you can draw a ticket. If you complete the route on the ticket before the end of the game, you receive bonus points. If you don't complete the route, the bonus points count against you in the final scoring. The person with the longest route at the end of the game gets 10 bonus points.
