Ticket to Ride: Europe takes you on a new train adventure across Europe. From Edinburgh to Constantinople and from Lisbon to Moscow, you'll visit great cities of turn-of-the-century Europe. Like the original Ticket to Ride, the game remains elegantly simple, can be learned in 5 minutes, and appeals to both families and experienced gamers.

Ticket to Ride: Europe is a complete, new game and does not require the original version. More than just a new map, Ticket to Ride: Europe features brand new gameplay elements. Tunnels may require you to pay extra cards to build on them, Ferries require locomotive cards in order to claim them, and Stations allow you to sacrifice a few points in order to use an opponents route to connect yours.

The game also includes larger format cards and Train Station game pieces. The overall goal remains the same, collect and play train cards in order to place your pieces on the board, attempting to connect cities on your ticket cards. Points are earned both from placing trains and completing tickets but uncompleted tickets lose you points. The player who has the most points at the end of the game wins.

Great game! Easy to learn

Reviewed by on

Great game for playing with your family/friends. Works well for 2 players, but best woth 4/5 players (more players means more difficult to reach your end goal). Very little chance, mostly strategy, but strategies aren't too difficult to learn. There is also no clear winner throughout the game

Great family fun

This is an amazing game for a family. The addition of the stations and the tunnel system means the player has to be more strategic whn choosing routes than in the classic game. The route points are much better balanced as well with each player only getting one long route

Easy to learn!

This was a fun game to play! My son and I played it for the first time today and it was easy to follow the rules. The game play is faster paced than some of the other games we have and it doesn't take hours to finish. It was great to score points by being able to claim railways (between the two of us), but I'm sure it become trickier when playing with more than 3 people! Good fun for the whole family!

Love this game. Great game dynamic that both games and non gamers would enjoy. This is a must have.

Fantastic game! Because the objective is to build train routes connecting certain destinations on the map, the game is easy to understand yet different and challenging to play every time. If you love strategy/luck games like Settlers of Catan, add Ticket To Ride to your collection. It is also the perfect board game for those that want to partake but arent regular gamers & dont want a long learning curve..Although may seem complicated by reading the rule book, it is as easy to grasp as Monopoly.
We love the Europe version because it is beautiful to look at and play with, and the addition of ferries, tunnels and Train Stations makes it way more challenging and exciting. It's a game the whole family can play over and over again.

Travel Europe in your living room!

What a great game for almost all ages. My nephew (10) always asks me if we can play "trains" when they come visit. It can be great family fun, but it can also be played by the more serious gamer. Having played both the original and the Europe version, I have to say that I prefer the European version. The train cards are larger and easier to handle, something that doesn't really get mentioned in online reviews. The game itself is also a bit more interesting with the addition of tunnels and stations.

This is a game that is easy to teach and with new players you'll be playing within 10 minutes.
