Ticket to Ride ranks among the three most well-known modern board games, rivaled only by Settlers of Catan and Cards Against Humanity. The objective is to build train routes. The more complex the route, the higher your score. But complicated routes are also riskier. The first 600 copies of the game (Ticket to Ride Europe) were introduced in German in 2004. The game received the prestigious Spiel des Jahres (German for Game of the Year) award that same year. To date, more than 3 million editions of Ticket to Ride have been sold, and it’s available in 20 languages with over 15 expansions. Of the expansion sets, the USA 1910 Expansion is the consensus favorite among game aficionados, Luckbox included.
Two to five players.
