Family Games Day 3 – Ticket to Ride

in Family Fun,Reviews

I know I mentioned that a Nertz tutorial would be up right about now, but after being out of town for the last month, I just haven’t finished it yet! I will do it as soon as I can and get it up and running.

For now, I wanted to share with you another favorite game – Ticket to Ride by Days of Wonder. Like Carcassonne, this is a strategy game without the cutthroat quality. The board stays the same, but you draw different “tickets” each time to tell you where you build your train route along the board. We have the European version, so the board is a simplified map of Europe with train routes between cities. The player to earn the most points by completing their routes and using up their train cars first wins.

If you like board games, you’ll enjoy this one!

We got this for Christmas and we love it. Our 8 and 11 year old enjoy it as much as the adults. Fun game!

Hi, I found your blog post through a search for “Nertz”. It is cool to see others that know about the game. I hope you don’t mind but I wanted to let you know about, the site for the National Nertz Association. There is a bunch of interesting Nertz information there and you can also find out how to play Nertz online there. I hope you will check it out. Feel free to join and also let your friends and family know. Thanks

We have the US version of this game and LOVE it!!! Did you know that you can play it online, too?

We have lent this game to friends several times as well. It is well loved.

We LOVE this game! We haven’t played the board game yet, but we do have the North America version. We also have the Xbox 360 version for both North America and Europe and we are having so much fun with it! I think “addicted” is the best word for it.
