While it isn't noted in the item description, this game also works on Macs. Here's what you have to do: after buying the game pack, click the button for "product key" for each game, then log in to Steam (steampowered.com) and activate the game in Steam by pasting in the key. I think you have to activate the original 'Ticket to Ride' first, then the others in any order. You will then be able to download a mac version of the software directly from Steam.

I scored this set on sale. At the sale price it was an offer I "couldn't refuse."

The beauty of this is that it captures all of the Ticket to Ride "universe" on your computer. This means you can play TTR anywhere and everywhere your computer can go (well, if you have a laptop, otherwise it sits in your home office).

I don't need to hope I can convince my family to play (though they enjoy TTR). If I want to play "solo" I can simply play offline on my own. And if I want to play with others but no one is around? You can also connect to other users on-line! Good stuff!

The other cool part is that now, if we want to, my fiance and I can connect and play while one or the other is traveling. And that, to me, is the beauty of it. It's the beauty of quality time/family time of a board game that I can have even when my family isn't here physically.

The basic concept is that you build railways from one location to another, building a "route" that will connect from one end of the board to the other depending on what route card you pick. It's that simple. It IS simple, but addictive.

One thing to note is that this REQUIRES Steam. You will need to setup a Steam account and download the client to be able to play this. Steam is used as a limited form of copy protection but also performs the duty of on-line match making. I don't mind Steam, but if you do, don't buy this set.

Highly recommended for fans of TTR. Recommended for board game fans.

I have been wondering a lot whether to give this game 1 or 5 stars. On one hand, it is lots of fun, never gets boring and there is good amount of strategy involved. On the other hand, it is so addicting that you can waste big part of your life playing it. It is like posting a review for some high quality drugs.
For whoever has played the original board game - the PC version is nicely implemented with intuitive menus and easy to use controls. There is solo mode (with pretty bad AI), pass the computer mode and online mode. You will find yourself mostly playing the last one, taking part in ranked games and climbing up the Hall Of Fame wall. If you have never had experience with any TTR games, you can search on Google or Youtube to see how the rules work.
Of course, there are few things which can be improved - like being able to see how many locomotives a particular player uses to build a road, what is the color of a road after being claimed, how many cards your opponents hold (it shows 8+ if there are more than that), etc. However, you will never feel frustrated with the game and if you loved the original, you will definitely enjoy this one as well.
All in all, if you are able to control yourself and limit your play-time, I highly recommend this bundle. Good luck!

Steam version. Works well both on Windows and on Mac. All expansions / maps are great. Uses the same servers as and iPad version for multiplayer, there are always a lot of people available to play with!

This is a great game that my friends and I play over Steam quite frequently. The different versions of the game keeps it refreshing when we get tired of one version.

Spectacular content. The interface is really intuitive, and the game processes a complete 5p game in about 12-15 min. There is a good balance in this pack for different player counts, but I typically stick with the USA map/ mega game.

1910 Expansion is included, and all the cards have symbols as well as colors. I find the computer plays very passive, but will cut off obvious routes in the endgame.

Ticket to Ride is a great board game, one that we've enjoyed for many years. The digital version captures the spirit of the original and takes it to new levels of fun. Online gameplay works well and the ranking system helps to ensure that you can find a balanced game. This is well worth it.

Having never played the board game, I was highly interested in trying this game out to see what all the fuss was about. Unfortunately I have yet to be able to finish a single game due to crashes. The graphics look whimsicly pleasant and the menus are easy to navigate. Just hoping the game gets patched in the near future because I could see me enjoying this game to it's fullest.

Ticket to Ride is my favorite board game, so when I saw that I get all of these games for just $5 for my pc, I didn't think twice about getting it.
Pros:
It's a fun game, and exactly like the board game.
It contains 5 games in one.
You can play it at home just like you play the board game which makes it great for playing games on vacation without having to take the board game.
You can play ranked or unranked online games with other people

Cons:
Solo play doesn't have any AI settings to make it more difficult, and it is really easy to win.
I'm not a fan of Steam which is required to play.

Overall, I give the game 5 stars, but the program 4 stars. The program would get 5 stars if it fixed the AI for Solo play.

This is the software version of the popular board game "Ticket to Ride". I have the physical board game and the 1910 expansion, but always wanted to try the other versions. This software bundle was much more cost and space effective than buying 2 more base sets.

I Picked this up when it was on sale and a great value for getting all the expansions in one go. You get individual steam keys for the base game, and each of the expansions, so if you already had any of them, you'd get an additional steam key, and could share it or give it away to whoever you like.
