Ticket to Ride is a turn-based strategy game, an adaptation of a board game of the same name.


The gameplay copies the board game entirely. The game takes place on a map of the United States and south Canada filled with multicolored railroads.
Each player starts with 45 train pieces and has to choose two Destination Cards. The Destination Ticket cards show two cities that player has to connect. Each turn every player chooses one of three actions: spend their train pieces to claim part of the railroad, draw three more destination tickets and keep at least one of them and draw two railway car cards. You can only claim railroad parts if you have enough railway car cards that match the road’s color. The amount of train pieces you spend depends on the length of the railroad fragment.
Claiming routes and connecting cities on your Destination Ticket card give you points at the end of the game. However, incomplete tickets make you lose points. The player with the most points wins the match.

Downloadable content

Ticket to Ride features several DLCs in the form of extra maps. Europe and 1910 USA maps were released in 2008 for Xbox 360 version of the game. These maps appeared later in the Mac and PC versions of the game alongside the Switzerland and Legendary Asia maps.

Ticket to Ride reviews and comments

Product received for free Ticket To Ride is a great Implementation of the Board game Variant. Below is a subjective Listing of the qualities of the Game: + Nice artwork + fast Gameplay + No Crashes + AI games possible + It is strictly adhered to the Board game rules-Operation could be a bit more fluid, especially the Menus behave a bit Sluggish and are unnecessarily scattered widely across the Home screen. -The Basic Version contains only one Card. For more, you will be asked to Pay again.

A classic board game. A good adaptation, quite a lot of people in multi so always way to play online now. The main problem of this game comes from the AFK players who will make you waste your time for nothing: no way to the bans of the game playing, and unfortunately if you leave it is you who take a penalty. If you start I will advise you to choose games or the game time of each player does not exceed 7 minutes (if a player arrives at the end of his allotted time, he is kick the game).

The Windows version of this game is much better - especially when it comes to multiplayer games. You can't really customize your online game in the Mac version - it is hard to create a game with just your friend, at least compared to the Windows version. If you want to play online with your friends, make sure they have Windows so they can create the online games, because the Mac version is a piece of crap when it comes to this.

It is really a very fun and addictive game! Really recommended. It's just a shame that you have to buy the game separately for your Ipad and Iphone and then also have to buy all expansion packs again. This is actually exploitation. Have it now on all 3 platforms, so bought 3 times. So also the expansion packages. Is very nice to play against each other. That is an advantage. In short, really nice, Also works great on Mountain Lion! No problems at all.

The game is very nicely done and offers entertaining Spielspa. There is nothing wrong with the actual game, just the operation at one point or another, but eventually it gets boring. Even after the purchase of the extensions, it was again interesting, but there are in live so many new beautiful extensions such as India / Asia or Scandinavia or Germany would be nice, if you also deposit as an update times, then kme certainly the Spielspa back. Otherwise, the game was very successful.

The game is great, The fear that I had was to not find people to play online, but I have always been able to play. Also, if someone leaves, they are replaced by a Bot, therefore, it is very good to be able to finish the games. You can also play against the machine and a "Hot Seat" mode to play several games on the same computer, but it is a bit strange when you have to watch the screen each time. The "bad" is that you have to pay 3 euros more to be able to have the extensions that make the game more fun. I advise before the maps the enlargement of letters. A greeting.
