Ticket to Ride is a faithful reproduction of the Alan Moon board game of the same name. Unlike most other modern board games that are being ported to tablets and Steam, Ticket to Ride (video game) was developed in-house by the same company that publishes the board game, Age of Wonder.

Age of Wonder is a well-respected game company; their board games are polished and attractive, with lots of "fiddly bits", as board gamers call the detailed pieces of the game. Their attention to detail that is displayed in their board games carries over to the video game versions, as well. The sound, the controls, the in-game tutorials... everything about this game sets you up for success.

Ticket to Ride is very much a game that is well-suited for a video-game version. There are many things to keep track of - cards and pieces on the board - and it plays much faster with a computer doing all the arranging. A game that takes about 45 minutes to play around a table takes about 10 minutes to play in this online version, and is equally satisfying. The video game version also lends itself better to expansions and DLC versions (alternate rules, really). Expansions that cost $25 for the board game because of production and distribution are just a few bucks here. The video game is a great way to try out the expansions before you buy the board game equivalent.

My one complaint is that it is a bit complicated setting up an (optional) online account with their servers to track your online matches, but if you do, you can track your gameplay on Steam, iOS, Android, wherever. This is a very nice feature, if you are an active player.

I recommend Ticket to Ride if you have and enjoy the board game, or if you enjoy board games in general. Not recommended if this isn't your thing ... if you aren't a board gamer, you probably won't like this much.

One of the best board to PC translations around, and the DLC makes the sometimes... eclectic nature of the game more accessible. Tunnels? Ferries? Dutchmen? What are these random markers? All solved by the included docs. Also, tons of drawings of trains. I do love me some trains.

Ticket To Ride is probably one of the most enjoyable board games I've played in a long time. The rules are rather uncomplicated and have a very low learning curve, taking only one game session to pick up. I quickly found myself putting hours into TTR, wanting to play just one more round. It's an incredibly well-balanced game, with fantastic elements of risk and reward that encourage you to change up how you play.

As for the DLC, I'd reccomend Legendary Asia and 1910 at most. LA adds some new rules that up the ante, and the maps in 1910, especially Big Cities, changes up the base map so it's not the same thing all the time.

Perfect adaptation of the board game! Looks and sounds nice, if you know the original (and like it) you won't be disappointed. You can play it offline if you want or with friends or strangers online. It's fun either way. There's even a pass n' play mode added in a recent update. I only wish there were more maps available (e.g. Nordic Countries).
Note: an option for limiting the time one can spend in a round would be useful, because quite often you are forced to wait long seconds for other players.
