Last night, J. Felbs and I gathered with friends for dinner and some gaming. I’ve been watching Tabletop on Geek and Sundry, and it’s definitely revved my interest in trying out a few new games. Our friends have “Ticket to Ride,” so we pulled that one down off the shelf and played a round.
It took me a few minutes to figure out what was going on, and then I spent most of the game trying to figure out how to make my routes. In the beginning, I only had one I couldn’t make, but then I decided to do a last minute grab for some extra points. I feel like there should have been some strategy on my part, but there wasn’t. It was all about building up some railroads and cutting other people off.
I was blue. It’s okay to note that I don’t have much of a railroad at all. I did manage to get some points, but in the end, J. Felbs was the victorious one. It was still a lot of fun, and it kind of cracks me up that Sault Ste. Marie is on the map…but in a good way!
Hopefully we’ll get to play this one again sometime soon.
