Ticket to Ride Game Day!

Brought to you by MadCast: AndromedaCat and MadCast: Listerfiend21
 

Ticket to Ride is a board game where you compete against other players to create railroads across the U.S. It takes 30 min. to an hour to play.
 
It is an incredibly easy-to-learn game which has lots of complexity to it.
 
You don't have to own the game to play! All you have to do is register an account on DaysofWonder.com which lets you play four free games.
 
If you don't know about Ticket to Ride, I suggest watching this and also checking out daysofwonder.com. You can play games against the AI to get a feel for the game. 
 
Here's a quick overview in case you don't/can't watch the video. 
 
Goals
Collect the most points at the end of the game to win, here's how to earn them!
Building Trains - 1 train = 1 point / 2=2 / 3=4 / 4=7 / 5=10 / 6=15
Have the longest Train (10 point bonus at the end of the game)
Complete routes from one city to another. Longer routes are worth more but are riskier. (If you do not complete your route, it will be counted against you. Example - A +17 route, if left uncompleted, counts as a -17 at the end of the game.
 
 
Rules
Start the game with 4 Train cards, and 3 Route Cards. You must keep at least two of your route cards, but you may choose to keep all three.
Each turn a player may take 1 of 3 actions.
Draw Two Train Cards. - You may choose the face up showing cards, or draw from the deck. If you choose a wild face up card it counts as two cards.
Draw three route cards - You must keep at least 1 route card out of the three you drew.
Place Trains on the board. - Using your train cards you may place your trains on the map. Example - You have collected 5 Red Train Cards, you can play on a 5 red train route on the map. Gray spots on the map can be played by any color, however they must still be matching, you can play 2 black or 2 red on a 2 gray map route
The Game Ends when one of the players has 2 or fewer trains left.
 
This event will be open to everyone C+.
 

When: Sunday, February 9th at 2 p.m. Mad Cast Time

 

Where: DaysofWonder.com and an event channel in TS

One of my immediate family members got this for Christmas. I've yet to play it with them, but I'd like to try and be there for this as it's on the one day I actually have off work.

*marked on schedule*

 

EDIT: Played it for the first time today with four other newbies. Good stuff. It was more exciting than everyone had anticipated once the rules were understood of course.
