This award winning train game starts with each player selecting their destination cards (missions). These missions earn players points for completion and the longer the route, the more points earned. On each turn, a player can either draw train cards, claim a route (by turning in the respective train cards and placing train markers along the route on the board) or draw additional destination cards. The game ends when the first player runs out of trains. The winner is the player who has accumulated the most points.
"The rules are simple enough to write on a train ticket" says game designer, Alan R Moon. "The tension comes from being forced to balance greed – adding more cards to your hand, and fear – losing a critical route to a competitor."
