For those unfamiliar with the series, here's what they all have in common: There is a game board indicating routes among a bunch of cities. The object of the game is to amass the most points, and in one way or another those points come from collecting the routes strategically. Collecting any route between two places will generate points, but each player holds Ticket Cards indicating longer routes of special importance to that person, and stringing together little routes to make this longer connection adds to the payoff (whereas failing to do so imposes a penalty). How do the players take possession of routes? They take turns drawing cards that, when collected into sets, determine which routes they can use, and eventually they start using those cards to claim routes. The main random element is the timing of when those cards turn up in the deck.
The Bavaria/Marklin edition contains a few differences from the other two, but the main new feature is the introduction of Passengers. Each player gets three little plastic guys who can be sent for a ride along the railway, collecting points at each town/city visited. The longer a player's rail, other things equal, the more points the little fellow can collect.Read more ›
Ticket to Ride: Marklin is similar to the USA version in many ways. The winner is the person who at the end accumulates the most points. Each player draws and chooses several routes at the beginning of the game and then tries to draw cards with the colors corresponding to the tracks that will take you through the towns you need to visit. Of course, there's a limited number of routes between cities, and if other players take your route, you may have to find creative ways to get where you're needing to go. Each track you lay is worth points, and connecting the routes are worth points, too. Each turn consists of either laying a track, drawing cards, choosing new routes, or traveling with a passenger.
It's that last feature--the passengers--that the Marklin version of the game has added, and it makes all the difference in the world.Read more ›
Although I love Markin, my favorite edition remains Ticket To Ride Europe since you can't be cut off as easily and it is slightly more complex than the original American version (but not as complex as Marklin). The American version is the most aggressive with many ways to really cut off your opponents.Read more ›
