Ticket to Ride is a cross-country train adventure. Players collect and play matching train cards to claim railway routes and connect cities throughout North America. The longer the routes, the more points they earn.
Players get extra points by connecting two distant cities, and building the longest continuous railway.
With each turn you either draw more cards, claim a route, or get additional Destination Tickets; the tension builds from being forced to consider your greed – adding more cards to your hand – and your fear – losing a critical route to a competitor.
