Ticket to Ride: First Journey brings the massively popular railroad game to the younger generation, in a scaled down version suitable for the younger audience.
Inside this Days of Wonder game you will find a simplified, child-friendly version of Ticket to Ride. The mechanics and the theme from the original game remain rooted in this edition.
Each turn, a player can either pick up two train cards from the pile, or discard train cards of the same colour to claim a route - thus allowing them to complete the tickets that they have in their hand. If they complete a ticket, they then draw another ticket and try to complete the route shown. There is also a special cross-continent card that can be claimed for connecting a city from one side of the map, to a city of the other side!
Instead of scoring like the original games, in Ticket to Ride: First Journey it's the first person to claim six tickets that is declared the winner.
This game will have your children racing to build as many railroads across Europe as possible, all while keeping them engaged and entertained. While this game is aimed at children, adults will also enjoy playing this with their children as many of the concepts remain the same as in the original Ticket to Ride games.
Quicker gameplay also ensures that your children will remain engaged and enjoy the entirety of the game. They'll also want to come back and play it time and time again.
Ticket to Ride: First Journey is a fantastic game to introduce your children to the world of board games. It's simple theme and gameplay allows all abilities to enjoy a scaled-down version of a much-loved classic.
