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 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.

  • Enjoyable, better than TtR.
  • More enjoyable and better than the original but it's still dull as hell. Draw, draw, draw, PLAY! Draw, draw, PLAY! Yawn.
  • --Nov2005-- Hey, I like it. The stations are a nice change; initial ticket disbursal seems fair, too. Not quite as convinced about the tunnels - but they're cute. I think I prefer it to the original - though perhaps not enough to make me buy it.
  • Who is this for? Tunnels are nonsense, more rules for more luck? Surely if you're going to add chaff onto such a streamlined machine, it should make it better for advanced players, not worse. Ferries are a sidegrade at best, but again, I feel they add so little, why bother except to check a box that this one is different somehow? Though in all honesty, stations are cool. One and a half for three on the additions, then. For something light and dead simple, the original game is better. For a slight step up, Germany is better. I don't think I'll choose to play this over those again.

#Star Wars Imperial Assault . The way they refined an already sweet dice mechanic earns my full respect.

The 'to put it politely, I can't fathom how anyone can enjoy this' award

haven't encounter anything yet that has no significant target audience in my eyes. 

 

 

Goh, my Dutch version of Everdell is about to arrive so I'm hoping that will become the "big family game".

#Elfenland isn't heavy and the daughter isn't a fan of #Ticket to Ride: Europe so let's see what this does...

1. I found BGA through a few board game Instagram people I follow. 

2. Probably 6 years. Started with #Catan #Ticket to Ride: Europe and #Munchkin Booty

3. My wife and I have played one of these three games almost every night since the pandemic started. #Kingdomino #Patchwork or #Sagrada

! don't intentionally play mean-unless someone else is doing it to me or other players.  I'm glad to report I've played with very few people who play mean.

I'll go for what I need in order to win, taking cards and resources, and blocking others ( #Catan or #Ticket to Ride: Europe) as needed, but I'm not going to be pushy, focus on one particular player, or be nasty about it.  I want everyone to enjoy playing together regardless of what happens.

Due to the make-up of my family (a wife who doesn't like complicated games, a teenage son who is challenging to get to the table), most of the games I have don't give one much opportunity to get mean.  I am, however, really interested in several games that are more strategic and challenging that I can play solo or with a small game-night group that will be a bit more competitive ( #Scythe #Terraforming Mars ).

I started with 6 games that consisted of gifts and a couple random purchases from the last few years, and then added 6 more a few weeks ago. I also just got a copy of #Ticket to Ride: Europe as a gift so I'm up to 13 now.

Same feeling for #Azul

Theme just made the rules explantion a bit more complex to me :D
It is a fun game with excellent game bits and it plays in a fluent fashion with my whole family.

Not once the theme was mentioned after reading the rules!

#Adel Verpflichtet | #Hoity Toity (same game) could FEEL like it doesn't matter and it work with any theme you could image and YET the theme does a lot for us.

We play #Ticket to Ride: Europe a lot and even though you are constantly looking on a map and reading city names, it could be abolsutely anything for us :)

I can get them to play #Ticket to Ride: Europe, #Century: Spice Road#Pandemic, #Sushi Go Party! and #Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle and #6 Nimmt! fairly easily.  My wife also likes #Splendor #Azul and #Alhambra. I'm always up for a game, my wife occasionally, and my son not so much. I'm hoping to get more game play with #Cartographers: A Roll Player Tale, #Istanbul: The Dice Game, and #The Quacks of Quedlinburg.

I really didn't think I would have so many, as a lot of my games collection is curated to appeal to the four people I can actually play with regularly, which includes a 5-year-old and a 7-year-old. But here's my list:

  1. #Wingspan
  2. #Pandemic
  3. #Carcassonne
  4. #7 Wonders Duel
  5. #Santorini
  6. #Catan
  7. #Kingdomino
  8. #King of Tokyo
  9. #Forbidden Island
  10. #Clank!
  11. #Coup
  12. #Sushi Go!
  13. #Ticket to Ride: Europe
  14. #Dixit
  15. #The Resistance
  16. #Takenoko
  17. #Mysterium
  18. #Stone Age
  19. #Hive
  20. #Magic: The Gathering
