If you’ve been a Blog, She Wrote reader for any length of time then you know that we love to play games! Ticket to Ride Europe is a new comer to our collection. I8 received as a birthday present from his grandparents.
This is the European version of Ticket to Ride which we really enjoy.
The object is to complete routes by collecting train cars and laying down your trains. I’m red in this game and I am making the moves for my long route.
These are the tickets which hold the routes and tell you the number of points you’ll receive if you complete them. Unlike Ticket to Ride, Europe offers extra points for long routes and at the beginning of the game you are offered one.
These are the train cards you have to collect in order to lay down routes. The engines are wild cards, but you can only pick up one of those at a time.
I swept up on this game! You can keep points as you go, but we just add them all up at the end of the game. This is a great math scoring endeavor.
If you don’t have these games in your collection, I highly recommend them. And the expansions. Of course.
