Ticket to Ride is a cross-country train adventure in which players collect and play matching train cards to claim railway routes connecting cities throughout North America.
The longer the routes, the more points they earn.

“I love route building games and I love railroads so my goal with Ticket to Ride was to design a game that combined those two things in the simplest way possible, while retaining a game that was fun to play no matter how many times you played it.
I also wanted the emphasis to be on building routes from coast to coast. People often ask me if I knew the game would be a hit. But if I’d known that, I would have designed it twenty years earlier.”
