Product Description

Product Description

A New Train Adventure Begins! The Ticket to Ride Card Game delivers all of the excitement, fun and nail-biting tension of the original Ticket to Ride board game, but with several unique game-play twists in a new stand-alone, card game format. Players collect sets of illustrated Train cards which are then used to complete Destination Tickets - routes between two cities depicted on each ticket. But before their Train cards can be used, players must face the risk of "train-robbing," where another player may force them to lose their hard-earned cards. The Ticket to Ride Card Game is for 2-4 players ages 8 and older. Contains 96 illustrated train car cards, 46 destination tickets, 6 big city prize cards, and a rulebook. Part of the Ticket to Ride series.

By J. Olsen on January 19, 2011
We had played the board game--both U.S. and Europe versions--and wanted to own one. When we saw the card game and realized it was more affordable we decided to give it a try. We actually like it better. It is more challenging because you can't see what the other players are doing. You can still mess with opponents by making them lose trains when you lay down more of the same color than they have down, but you have no clue what routes they have completed.

We have since purchased the board game, but when we are in the mood to play TTR most of the time we go for the card game. We play with a group of adults, but I can see where the U.S. map board game would be a better choice if you are including younger players.

Played this game for the first time with my husband's grandparents. And now every time we have someone over we are playing it. We absolutely love this game - I enjoy it more than the board game version! And once you get the swing of things, you can play multiple hands/rounds in an evening! Great game all around@

We love the board games and play them weekly, but we've had to change some of the rules of this card game to make it easier to play. I was really hoping it would be more enjoyable and less complicated. I rate it a 3 because we still reach for the board games over this. I would say ages 10 and up.

The board game is easier to teach to new players because of the visual aids, but the card game is a little more skill-based. If your group won't stop playing TTR but you're getting tired of it, try mixing this in instead.

This is a fun card game, and its good for 2 people, unlike the board game of the same name. Love the board game... the card game is fun, but not quite as interesting. Quality is fine and the rules are easy enough that my 7 year old can play, although her strategy is somewhat questionable. :)

We got this product as a gift for a neighbor family who comes over all the time to play the board game with us. How embarrassing to have to spend twenty minutes just trying to figure out the instructions! As experience TTR board game players, we thought it would be much easier to understand the card game. Thankfully, we were able to look up a better explanation than what is provided!

On the bright side, the cards are durable and bright - we did wish that there was the same little circle design on the bottom of the card so we weren't constantly having to turn them around in our hands. The game, once we got it figured out, was enjoyable. In time, if we keep playing, I'm sure it will become as familiar as the board game and we will fill in some of the holes in the rules with some of our own design.

I was so excited to receive this game. We were going on a cruise and I was excited to have a travel size version of our favorite game.

We have most of the versions of TTR and love all of them with their individual quirks. But we can't stand this game! It doesn't have any of the fun of TTR. It has very bizarre rules. Just looking at the box you get a sense of what the game might be like and how you would be able to complete routes without a board - but then the game is nothing like what you imagine, lol. I think Days of Wonder needs to revamp this game completely. A TTR card game is completely doable - but this one is terrible.

I gave the game 2 stars because it is beautiful and well made as are all of the Days of Wonder games. I would not recommend buying it unless you want to satisfy your morbid curiosity, lol. It's so bad that I wouldn't even regift it.

A good game, but it takes all of your concentration to remember what you've played already so it's not a great game for visiting with the people you're playing with. But a great game if you want to sit quietly, all in your own little train track brains, and play a game.
