Ticket to Ride: First Journey Europe
Product code: AC5913
Ticket to Ride: First Journey takes the gameplay of the Ticket to Ride
series and scales it down for a younger audience.
In general, players collect train cards, claim routes on the map, and
try to connect the cities shown on their tickets. In more detail, the
game board shows a map of Europe with certain cities being connect by
colored paths. Each player starts with four colored train cards in hand
and two tickets; each ticket shows two cities, and you're trying to
connect those two cities with a contiguous path of your trains in order
to complete the ticket.
On a turn, you either draw two train cards from the deck or discard
train cards to claim a route between two cities; for this latter option,
you must discard cards matching the color and number of spaces on that
route (e.g., two yellow cards for a yellow route that's two spaces
long). If you connect the two cities shown on a ticket with a path of
your trains, reveal the ticket, place it face up in front of you, then
draw a new ticket. (If you can't connect cities on either ticket because
the paths are blocked, you can take your entire turn to discard those
tickets and draw two new ones.) If you connect one of the westernmost
cities (Dublin, Brest, Madrid) to one of the easternmost cities (Moscow,
Rostov, Ankara) with a path of your turns, you immediately claim a
special cross-continent ticket.
The first player to complete six tickets wins! Alternatively, if someone
has placed all twenty of their trains on the game board, then whoever
has completed the most tickets wins!
