Board Games at Odum: Ticket to Ride

A guide to help you navigate Odum Library's board game collection and the world of gaming.

Ticket to Ride

Description

With elegantly simple gameplay, Ticket to Ride can be learned in under 15 minutes. Players collect cards of various types of train cars they then use to claim railway routes in North America. The longer the routes, the more points they earn. Additional points come to those who fulfill Destination Tickets - goal cards that connect distinct cities; and to the player who builds the longest continuous route.
