The Ticket to Ride board games, an award winning series from Days of Wonder, is a game the whole family can enjoy. With intuitive rules and game play, you can teach someone to play in only a few minutes and jump right into the fun! In the Marklin version of the game, players race across the German landscape in their efforts to claim the best routes for themselves, but in a new twist, can also bring along passengers to score extra points! Each player has three passengers to use during the game, so he must use them wisely, as the first visitor to each city scores the most points, but if you wait until later as you expand your rail network, your passengers will be able to visit more cities, claiming more points for you! Each train card also includes a unique picture of collectible Marklin model trains in this special edition. This fun, fast paced game is a great way to introduce friends and family to the fun and exciting world of board games!
