ticket to ride


This is our new favorite game, and despite the fact that I end up singing that Beatles song in my head every time I think about it and get frustrated because I only know the chorus and none of the verses, it’s totally worth it. And also, despite the fact that I have never ever won and my husband always, always does, it’s totally worth it.


This is not a promotion and there is no way I’m being paid a cent to say this, but if the makers of the game wanted to send me the original America version, I wouldn’t send it back.

Ticket to Ride has about a hundred rules and it took us for-ev-er to figure it out the very first time we played. Now we are experts though, and it is quite delightful. It is for ages 8 and up, but our littles can even play a simplified version where they just match the colors to make trains.

On this particular day I tried a new strategy and completely stunk up the place, but…totally worth it. Plus, my husband only won by one point. A strategical error by his brother cost him the game. We’ll have to play with Brother more often. Husband’s luck has got to run out at some point, right?

Now, if I could only stop singing the song.

  1. Great game. We play this one a lot too! Never thought about the Beatles before, but I have a feeling I will be singing Ticket to Ride now every time we place. 🙂

  2. We love this game too and we like the US version best. There’s also an iPhone app so you can play anytime!

    • Laurie, I’m not sure I would like the app. I’m a very tactile person and part of the joy for me is playing with my little trains. 🙂 I’m so glad you stopped by!

  3. This looks like a nice game… but I cannot shift the song from my head now! Love the Beatles though, so that’s not too bad.
