Expansion pack expands the fun!
on July 8, 2007
Our family loves Ticket to Ride. We play the standard boardgame quite often and even occasionally take up a challenge on-line at the company website. Of course the 1910 Expansion Pack seemed a likely "must have," and we were not disappointed.
The card deck of wagon cards is completely replaced so you don't have to worry if your original deck is getting a bit worn. They are also proper playing card size, and much easier to shuffle and deal. The pack has the standard destination cards from the first game, the 1910 destination cards, Big City destination cards, and the Mystery Train destination cards. You can play the standard format, Big Cities only, or go for the gusto and challenge of the MEGA game by playing with all expansion packs together! Talk about a challenge!
The new cards include every city on the map as one terminus of the destination tickets. It ads a new element and makes things very unpredictable. There is also a "most destination cards completed" extra point card, adding a new twist and taking you away from the longest train and making those short hops on the East Coast really worth going for.
I would highly recommend this expansion pack to anyone who has purchased and enjoys the Ticket To Ride Game!
