We like boardgames. It's a great way to get family and friends around the table for fun and talk. It's very social, and I have been doing it for as long as I can remember. One of my favorite new games last year was Alan R. Moon's Ticket to Ride train game. It's a new take on the train theme and it turned out to be both fun and challenging.
On April 8th Days of Wonder will introduce a new version of the game which will include a new map, new rules, and an improved design of the cards. There was nothing wrong with the old one, but I am certainly looking forward to the new one. I've always wanted to take a train to Constantinople.
