“Grandma! is that you on this old picture? What is this big tower?”
“Ohhh, the Eiffel Tower! That was long ago, one of my first trips in Europe with your grandpa…”
“Where did you go in Europe?”
“We visited a lot of cities… Paris, Vienna, even Moscow… somehow, my whole life was a journey.”
Ticket to Ride – First Journey is a family-friendly introduction to Alan R. Moon’s best-selling train adventure series. The game features a board of Europe, with shorter routes and new whimsical illustrations in every cities. With this simpler version of Ticket to Ride, younger players and beginners alike can take their first steps in the train game series.
Although rules are simplified and game objectives made easier, the game remains faithful to what has made Ticket to Ride a success: players race to complete their tickets by capturing routes on the board. The imaginative art on the board and on the ticket cards makes it easy to find cities for even the youngest players, who will be delighted to build their own networks with the big plastic train pieces included in the game.
