Ticket to Ride is a cross-country train adventure in which players collect and play matching train cards to claim railway routes connecting cities through North America!
The original Ticket to Ride is perfect for an experienced tabletop enthusiast, families, and those new to the hobby. Simple rules and beautiful design make it easy for anyone to play and have fun!
Players compete to connect iconic cities across the United States by claiming railway routes on the map board. The person with the highest number of total points wins!
To earn points on their cross-country train adventure, players claim routes between two cities, complete Destination Tickets, and compete to claim the longest continuous path of routes across the map.
A player will claim a route between two cities by playing matching train cards equal to the number of spaces in the route. Missing a specific color card? Try using the powerful Locomotive card that can be used as any color.
While connecting cities, keep an eye on your routes! If you manage to have the longest continuous path on the map board, you will earn bonus points at the end of the game.
Earn additional points by completing Destination Tickets. These cards will ask you to connect specific cities through whatever route necessary. However, be careful because any Destination Ticket left uncompleted will result in negative points!
Using a compatible Echo device, say “Alexa, launch Ticket to Ride” and be taken on a guided tour from the beginning to end of the game. No rule book is needed. You can even play against Alexa!
Ticket to Ride is an award winning, cross-country train adventure game. Players collect train cards that enable them to claim railway routes connecting cities throughout North America.

The official Alexa skill takes players on a guided experience from setup to the end of the game and features unique sound effects and music. No rules are needed after saying “Alexa, launch Ticket to Ride.” The skill also allows a person to play against Alexa!

Ticket to ride is a light strategy game where the aim is to connect routes with the chain of trains you have and get points. The person with the highest number of points wins! It is a nice game for kids and elders alike. As this is a beginner strategy game, I would not recommend this game for seasoned strategists, but rather for folks who are just getting into strategy games
Build: 9 on 10
The build of the game was really good. The quality of trains was sturdy and the look and feel of the board was professional. I did not need a sleeve for the cards as they did not bend and were nice and flat. They also have a nice touch and feel. While one of my trains was damaged, they had provided plenty of spare trains which made it worthwhile.
Packaging: 10 on10
The package was received on time. The product itself comes in nice professional box and has dedicated locations to store each item from the game. It was quite easy to unwrap the product and start using it.
Overall: 9 on 10
Overall, having played many many strategy games, this still ends up as one of my favorite ‘light’ strategy games.
I often depend on others leaving honest reviews when I need to order a new item. I find that one of the most difficult things about ordering online is that I can’t hold or touch the products before buying them. So, I love reviews from others who have touched, inspected, and used the item I’m thinking about purchasing. I strive for the same in leaving reviews for others – to leave a review that will help others make an informed decision (never to inflate the product's quality). If you have found this review helpful, I’d love if you’d indicate that below.
Observations / suggestions / etc:
- Requires a fairly big surface area given lots of cards and lots of pieces are part of this game
- Gameplay is super fast, you can get around the horn very quickly (4 players can play in 30 seconds total if they all just draw cards), so don't think you're going to be getting up to get a drink after your turn or anything. Or checking phones seriously just put them away. Good to agree on a set "break time" or something
- Total game time is also pretty fast but not silly fast. An hour or 90 minutes or so.
- If you play with people who are sneaky you should think about wearing sunglasses so they can't see where you are looking on the board because it might give away your strategy if they could tell where you are focusing
- If you're playing against people who don't wear sunglasses try and watch their eyes so you can see where they are looking, it may give away their strategy and you can swoop in and take their routes and win the game that'll teach them
- The spot labeled Duluth is clearly in Minneapolis/St Paul and *everyone* who you play with from Minnesota will point it out
- I recommend some sort of "card holder" thing if you play with younger kids and/or people with smaller hands. We have some wooden boards with slots cut in them to hold cards and they help a ton in this game (and others). I put a picture of that up.
My only real critique of this game - and the reason it's 4 not 5 stars - is the board doesn't sit especially flat. You can see in the pictures I attached. At times you have what seems like a million little trains on the board and just having the board not sit flat makes it seem a bit cheap. This is all about MANUFACTURING quality however, not about GAMEPLAY quality.
In the 10th-anniversary edition, each train is a different kind of train car. This one they are all the same train just different colors. I do not like this version.
My suggestion, if you are wanting to buy this game, get an older version.
Top reviews from other countries
Simple to learn, it takes one game to get to grips with the mechanics and after that the strategy and tactics elements are easy to develop from there, and you get a deeper experience the more you play it. The scoring is really effective in creating excitement, particularly towards the end of a game, and the gameplay rewards both risky and conservative approaches, depending on how the board develops.
It's really inclusive, and has unbelievable replay value. I love it.
Eventually, we decided to give it a shot.
I wish we'd bought it sooner! The whole family loves it. It's a very very simple idea involving very simple game play.
My 9 year old picked it up very quickly and, after eventually coaxing a screen obsessed teen away from her tablet/phone she also got into playing.
A highly recommended hit for the whole family.
A lovely simple concept; collect train carriages of the right colours to build the routes between cities that you need to score points and win the game.
But what happens if someone else claims the single track on the route you were planning to take? Do you detour? Do you abandon your plans and start building a completely new route?
A very accessibly game that my 8 and 6 yr old were thoroughly engaged in and wanting to play more of.
There's enough nuance and variation each time you play it that I suspect this will remain a favourite for many years to come.
During Covid lockdown we were playing this at least once a fortnight, which given it's roughly 45-60mins for a family of 4 to play is a resounding success for us.
This is a great game to introduce your children to board games.
The box makes it look quite boring but it's a really great game. Lasts about 30-40 minutes usually (unlike Monopoly) and there is no money (I'm always banker so that's a relief) or dice (to pick up off the floor). Really easy instructions. Loads of strategy and luck involved too. The game is a bit pricey but the quality of the board is very good and the 'cost per play' makes it a very cheap option as we've played it so much already. Can't recommend it highly enough, I'll be buying it for birthday presents for the rest of the year for anyone with kids aged seven upwards.
I think it’s probably better to actually play the game once and reread the rules to get the full gist of how it works.
I think we will become more keen once we’ve played it a few times.
I think the price is average for a board game these days but I think board games are generally overpriced.
