Ticket To Ride: Europe

(2 customer reviews)


In stock

Ticket to Ride: Europe is the premier train-based boardgame. In the Ticket to Ride: Europe board game, you compete against others to complete secret missions along a limited amount of tracks.


Ticket to Ride: Europe takes you on a new train adventure across Europe. From Edinburgh to Constantinople and from Lisbon to Moscow, you’ll visit great cities of turn-of-the-century Europe. Like the original Ticket to Ride, the game remains elegantly simple, can be learned in 5 minutes, and appeals to both families and experienced gamers. Ticket to Ride: Europe is a complete, new game and does not require the original version.

More than just a new map, Ticket to Ride: Europe features brand new gameplay elements. Tunnels may require you to pay extra cards to build on them, Ferries require locomotive cards in order to claim them, and Stations allow you to sacrifice a few points in order to use an opponents route to connect yours. The game also includes larger format cards and Train Station game pieces.

The overall goal remains the same, collect and play train cards in order to place your pieces on the board, attempting to connect cities on your ticket cards. Points are earned both from placing trains and completing tickets but uncompleted tickets lose you points. The player who has the most points at the end of the game wins.

    My favourite incarnation of Ticket to Ride; it condenses more of the action into a tighter area but there are so many work arounds that you rarely feel a route is unable to be completed.

    Stations add a good mechanic so you are not screwed over by being 1 line shy of a route but they aren’t overpowered, if you don’t use them, more points. Tunnels add an interesting push your luck aspect to the game.

    If you are teaching someone Ticket to Ride who is not really a gamer this is probably not the one for it; it’s not that much more complex but tunnels and stations require a bit more explaining, in reality it’s not much harder though, just a little more daunting compared to the original Ticket to Ride.

    On a side note, I would NEVER play 5 player games of this again; having 12 of each colour train, you can find everyone in a stalemate, waiting for the cards they need to create a line.

    This game is really easy to learn. We are a family of ‘non board gamers’ and I researched this game and was a little hesitant reading some of its reviews, thinking it could be a little hard to learn with the tunnels and ferrys compared to the normal Ticket to Ride. However, this game is a piece of cake to learn – very easy to pick up and play pretty much straight away. The board quality is amazing. The only slight downside is the town names are a little tricky to find since some of the names look the same (and you want to be sneaky in locating your routes) but I imagine this will become second nature to find the places as we play it more. Our games take 45-60 mins to play – but can shorten this to only running 1 short route etc if time is short – It’s pretty flexible as a game. Highly recommend and well worth the money.
