In this game, your goal is to figure out the best routes to travel across America by train. Not only will your child learn strategy and geography, but they’ll have a blast too.
In fact, this game is so much fun that my husband and I love to play it after the kids are in bed, just the two of us!
Note: The manufacturer says this is for ages 10 and up, but according to several other families (including mine!) most 8-year-olds who can read are ready for this game. For younger kids, check out the incredibly well-made kids’ edition, Ticket to Ride: First Journey.
From the Manufacturer
Build your tracks across the United States in Ticket to Ride, a fast-paced and strategic board game for two to five players. In every game, you and your opponents must compete for train cards, which in turn allow you to run your trains between iconic American cities. You’ll earn points for every route you complete, but you need to plan for the future—ticket cards can give you many more points if you connect the two cities shown on the ticket. Just be careful: your opponents are competing for the same routes as you!
