Airing the Linnen: My Top Four Games - #4

Guest Post by Brian Linnen

Our Friendly Local Comic Shoppe has been building up their stock of games over the past few months; you probably have noticed. Here are, in the humble opinion of the author, the top four games that they are carrying:

# 4 * Ticket To Ride* (Days of Wonder).

This is the best cross-over game that I have ever played. By this I mean that even folks who don't normally play board games will come to it and walk away having enjoyed themselves. It's a cinch to learn, features high quality components, and lots of fun. You earn points by building railroad lines between various cities, and if you want to make your friends miserable, cut them off in their attempts to do the same thing. * Ticket to Ride: Europe* takes the basic game and adds a few special features to it, and the brand new* Ticket to Ride: Marklin* somehow adds passengers to the mix. I haven't been able to play that one yet, but it looks good. A game of* Ticket to Ride* usually takes about an hour.

(Ed.: Stay tuned for the rest of the Top 4... coming soon!)

Hey - we played Ticket to Ride: Marklin tonight and had a great time! It takes the basic game system and adds passengers to the trains. You can have them jump from city to city as long as you have trains that connect the cities in question. They pick up points in each city that they move through and those points get added to your score. There are a few other extra things too.

It was a really tense game. Everyone was into it and a couple of us mentioned that it had you on the edge of your seat waiting for your next turn.

Very good stuff!!
