Ticket to Ride (PC)

Measuring whose choo choo is longer.

In this digitized board game players (AI optional) take turns trying to build railway lines to earn more points than the others.

On your turn you can get more tickets (objectives to build rail from point A to B), collect more color coded cards, or use said cards to create a chain of trains from city to city. Available rail tracks are limited, so first come first serve.

Train assembly has to do with color coordination apparently.

Only one map is available in the base game with more set as expansions but I found this game not compelling enough to begin with. Game play is very dead and actual choices are quite limited since you will most likely be working on your own objectives than trying to block any one else.

Maybe the actual board game is more fun, but unlike Carcassone - this digital version doesn't really make me want to try it. I give it 1 caboose out of 5.


  1. Sad to hear, but it'd be interesting to know if this is a new version of the game..

    Ticket to Ride is one of my favorite board games and when I bought it like... 15 years ago? and kinda liked the computer game version (which came free with it), but if it is the same, maybe it simply has not aged well.

    Would absolutely suggest not dismissing it and playing it with a few people (more than 2) in person if you get the chance. Probably not buy it though, maybe it's really the game...

    1. Ooh, I don't know if its a new version as I am just driven by whatever freebies are offered. Truthfully though this was so awful, I'm not really inclined to even check for an update to it.
