The ultimate Ticket to Ride version and just such an amazing game. I think it speaks for itself, as when I got my family to play it they went and bought their own copy and their friends that played with them bought their own copy!
This game is classic for a reason. Easy mechanics and mild strategy combine to make for a quick, entertaining game. Once you have sorted the longest routes, it becomes pretty obvious which one a particular player is shooting for, but given the incentive to complete multiple routes, defense is a dangerous proposition. Generally good game, although I'm not sure how long it will last as a top choice in our house.
I can certainly see what all the fuss is about with this game, but it's missing that extra something special for me. It's a lot of work to get everything out (the board is huge), shuffle the huge deck of cards just to play a (maybe) slightly above-average game at best. There's nothing keeping me interested while other players are taking their turns. My turn usually only has one obvious choice to make. It feels like this game needs to be sped up in order to enjoy it more.
Slightly more complex, while at the same time being a bit more forgiving with the stations (though, there are still plenty of screwage opportunities). Probably a better game than the original.
Personally, I prefer this version to the original. When it came to buying ticket to ride though we went for the USA edition. The reason being, is that for me, ticket to ride is primarily a game to be played with non-gamers or as a filler. For that reason alone, we have the USA version.
