  • Summary: Ticket to Ride is a popular strategy based board game that tasks the players with completing railroad routes across the games map (USA is the original map but there are plenty of expansions available) attempting to score more points than their opponents. The great thing about Ticket to Ride is that the rules are very simple and the interactive tutorial included with this PC version will mean that within 5 minutes even complete novices will know what they are doing.

  • Summary: Ticket to Ride is an adaptation of a popular board game, with the ability to play against AI, or local or online opponents. The board game has a pretty simple rule set that's easy to learn, and it has some good strategic complexity. I haven't been playing it for all that long, but I've definitely enjoyed what I've played so far. I found the voice acting obnoxious and turned it off immediately. The music grates after a little while, but you can turn that off too.

  • Summary: One nice thing about this game is that there's enough complexity to give you multiple ways to beat it but it's also very quick to pick up. The main problem I had with this game is that there is no difficulty setting on single player. You can go online, which I guess is what most people do. Maybe I'm just overly pessimistic.

  • Summary: This game was very enjoyable as a board game, and i love it on PC too. I got it in the humble bundle, so the price was well worth it, (7 bucks for a ton of games including this.) The gameplay is good, its just like the physical game, but as DarkCowboy said, the AI is really, really, easy to beat, and when you spectate a game you cant chat, which really annoys me. Basically, if you liked the physical board game, get this.

  • Summary: "Ticket to Ride" is a rather simple strategy game but it has a great theme that makes you coming back again and again. The presentation is top notch and the AI provides a decent challenge that allows you to learn the rules and to try out different strategies. Once you are done with the AI you want to play against other humans. The multiplayer implementation works like a charm and even provides an online ranking. Highly recommended!

  • Summary: Game is fantastic and enjoyable, but has a few shortcomings. The AI is terrible and I have yet to lose a game to the AI. The game needs a hotseat and LAN mode that lets you play more than one person against the computer. And the online mode desperately needs a game lobby. You can wait forever to fill a game with 4 or 5 players. It also lacks the option to invite and play with friends online. You can only play against opponents that the game picks for you.

  • Summary: Incredibly well-polished implementation of a great board game. I actually find this to be more fun than the board game itself since you avoid all the setup time.

  • Summary: The game is great, but the first version lacked local multiplayer. Now that they've added that, it's even better. I can't say it's perfect, but it's great, for sure.

  • Summary: The most recent update added pass to play which is the only complaint I have heard about the game. I went through several games last night and the implementation is flawless. The game includes a great video tutorial and in game tips in your first game. Also you can play a single player round of the game in 10 or 15 minutes!

  • Summary: The iPad iteration not only retains all of the gameplay that made the board game so great, but it does so with a gorgeous presentation and intuitive controls. The beautiful maps have all been delicately reproduced here, alongside the card art and the general feel of the game. Characters that had previously only appeared in instruction manuals or on the box are brought to life as avatars and menu characters.
