"Grandpa! I found this strange old hat in the attic. What is it?"

"Good grief, that's the engineer's cap I wore when I was a railroader. I traveled all over the country with this thing ... listen to me boring you with Grandpa's stories."

"But we love stories! Tell us what it was like to be an engineer."

"Well, I've traveled all over the place - New York, Chicago, LA - but one thing I'll never forget is my first journey. It alll started when I arrived at the station ..."

Ticket to Ride: First Journey takes the gameplay of the Ticket to Ride series and scales it down for a younger audience.

In general, players collect train cards, claim routes on the map, and try to connect the cities shown on their tickets. In more detail, the game board shows a map of the United States with certain cities being connect by coloured paths. Each player starts with four coloured train cards in hand and two tickets; each ticket shows two cities, and you're trying to connect those two cities with a connecting path of your trains in order to complete the ticket.

The first player to complete six tickets wins! Alternatively, if someone has placed all twenty of their trains on the game board, then whoever has completed the most tickets wins!

Value for Money

Bought this to play with my 6 year old who is just getting into what I would call more modern board games after falling in love with monopoly and other games. We already play Catan Junior quite often.

Anybody familiar with TTR will be able to pick this up straight away, the game is a little more forgiving in that you can toss route cards and get some new ones if it becomes clear that the route you want to put in place is unobtainable or you are blocked. You can also use any dual tracks between destinations regardless of the number of players.

Cities have a picture as well as a label which also matches what is on the route card - this would be great for children that aren't quite at the stage where they can read yet.

Train cards are drawn blind - there's no pile to cherry pick from and actions are either pick up train cards (blind) put down trains or pick up route cards.

First to get 6 routes wins.

Great game and I'm really happy with the quality and the service from Chaos Cards also.
