Product Description

Ticket to Ride: Nederland is the 4th in a series of map collections that expand the popular train game. It contains a new game board with new rules for use with Ticket to Ride or Ticket to Ride: Europe with player now creating train lines in the Netherlands.

The basics of the Ticket to Ride game remain the same as always — players collect train cards in order to claim routes between pairs of cities with the overall goal of completing tickets they hold in hand.

How is this different to classic Ticket to Ride?
Ticket to Ride: Nederland twists the standard game in two ways. First, nearly every route on the game board is a double-route, with two tracks connecting cities. Both of these routes are in play no matter how many players are in the game.

Second, every route — whether double or single — has a bridge toll that a player must pay when building on that route. On a single route or the first track of a double route, the player pays this toll — which costs 1-4 coins — to the bank; on the second track of a double route, the player pays this toll to the player who built the first track. Players start the game with 30 coins, and if you can't pay a toll, you must take a loan card to cover the fare, with each loan costing you 5 points at the end of the game.

In addition to helping you avoid loans, coins matter because at game's end, players receive a bonus based on how many coins they hold relative to everyone else. In a five-player game, for example, the player with the most coins scores a 55 point bonus; the 2nd place player scores 35 points, and the other players 20, 10 and 0 points. If you've taken a loan, however, you're ineligible for this bonus scoring, so players have an incentive to build early and often.

These coin bonuses are balanced by the multitude of destination tickets with large point values: six of them are worth 29+ points while another seventeen are worth 17-26 points.

This is an expansion; what do I need to play it?
You will need the plastic carriages, trains cards and score markers found in either Ticket to Ride, Ticket to Ride: Europe or Ticket to Ride: Nordic Countries

Contents: Map board of the Netherlands, 44 Destination Tickets, Bridge Toll tokens, Rules
