How Do I Play Ticket to Ride?
The basic premise of Ticket to Ride is to be the player who builds the longest continuous railway across the board, claims North American train routes, and collects more points than opponents. The game consists of a board map of North America, cards, wooden scoring markers, and train pieces. Throughout the game, you want to build a long route and connect distant cities across the map and fulfill destination tickets.
The Basic Game Play and Rules
At the start of every new game, each player is dealt four train car cards and three destination ticket cards that each have different big cities on them. These cities act as start and endpoints that the player is trying to strategically connect throughout the game. Players collect cards throughout the game that allow them to claim a route and lengthen their railway.
Taking a Turn
Players are also given 45 train pieces with the matching scoring marker that they will use to create their railway.
1. Draw two car railway cards.
2. Draw three more additional destination tickets card, choose at least one destination ticket, and discard the others.
3. Play one of their railway cards and claim railways.
Claim Railway Routes
Players are able to claim any route on the board that has not yet been played, whether it helps them connect their railway or not. However, players may not claim parallel routes between two adjacent cities.
Players are awarded points when they claim routes, so in some cases, claiming the route may be the better strategic move than choosing another option.
