October 2nd, 1900 – 28 years to the day that noted London eccentric, Phileas Fogg accepted and then won a £20,000 bet that he could travel “Around the World in 80 Days”. Now at the dawn of the century it is time for a new impossible journey. Some old friends have gathered to celebrate Fogg’s impetuous and lucrative gamble – and to propose a new wager of their own. The stakes: $1 million in a winner-takes-all competition. The objective: to see which of them can travel by rail to the most cities in North America – in just 7 days.
The journey begins immediately…
Ticket to Ride is a cross-country train adventure. Players collect cards of various types of train cars that enable them to claim railway routes connecting cities throughout North America. The longer the routes, the more points they earn. Additional points come to those who can fulfill their Destination tickets by connecting two distant cities and to the player who builds the longest continuous railway. So climb aboard for some railroading fun and adventure. You’ve got a Ticket to Ride!
Several additional stand-alone board games and expansions are available, such as Ticket to Ride Europe.
