Ticket To Ride

Ever wondered what it would be like to be a Railroad mogul? Think you’ve got what it takes to reach your destinations faster than your friends and family? Then you’re in luck – Ticket to Ride is just what you need. Gameplay is straightforward — your job is to connect your destinations together. The more routes you successfully connect, the more points you get. Of course, your opponents are trying to do the same thing. Barcelona to Constantinople via Berlin? It isn’t how you get there… just that you do.

Several available expansions (including various continents and timeframes) prevent the game from becoming stale.

Want to take a ride before buying a ticket? We understand. Bring some friends into the store and pick it up off our demo rack. Sit down at one of our tables and play a game! But be forewarned… it’s addictive!

Splendor

This is a great card game that is very easy to learn. It’s fairly quick, with a game lasting somewhere between 15 and 30 minutes. The object is simple: get the required number of victory points before your opponent does. To do this, you use your coins to buy cards and more coins which you then use to buy cards and more coins and so on. The problem is that your opponents are trying to do the same thing! It’s easy to play and would be a great choice for friends as well as families. You can play with 2-4 players. Unlike a lot of games, the 2 player option is quite satisfying. You don’t need a group to make it worthwhile. (A larger group actually adds to the complexity of the strategy since even more people are taking the cards you want to buy.)
