Chugga chugga choo choo!
My friends and I became railroad barons in a fierce game of Ticket to Ride.
We each built a train empire, with a slew of routes connecting major cities, to satisfy our hidden objectives.
There was one transcontinental line from Los Angeles to Charleston.
It boldly traveled west, until Houston. There, the westward road was suddenly cutoff by another baron! The train made a screeching halt and then detoured to Dallas.
Dallas, however, provided no relief from the onslaught. Its westward road was also claimed.
The train was forced more north, all the way through Kansas City, where it was eventually able to travel west to Pittsburgh, and down to Charleston.
It was fun watching the train desperately zigzagging across America. The poor passengers surely didn’t anticipate an extra week of detours.
Ticket to Ride was super fun to play. I highly recommend it to any boardgamer.
