Everyone i’m tom and today. I’m going to be playing ticket to ride ride france. Which is an expansion.
It’s not a standalone thing. If you’ve i believe it works with ticket to ride or ticket to ride to europe you just need the trains and the train cards because the map. The huge huge huge map is here and you get all of the you know their tickets and the wealth.
You might notice that the the big draw of the france map is that there aren’t many tracks on the board. There are only a few of these little one sized ones or this this wild one or the fairies that are a thing in a couple of the other variations of ticket to ride that is because we are going to be putting these tracks on the board. Whenever we draw cards in ticket to ride now instead of just getting the cards as well you have to place a route somewhere.
And it may be somewhere you want it may be you know you’re trying to bluff it so somebody else thinks you’re going there you know there are a lot of possibilities with that but i’ve never done a playthrough of ticket to ride. So i’m gonna do one with this so we start off with eight train cards at random. I’ve been quite lucky actually and got a lot of locomotives.
Which are wild cards and you start off with five train cards and you have to keep at least the rate you can keep all five. If you want i’ve got some that are kind of in the same area and they’re worth a lot of points. I kind of want to go from brest to germany.
Really and stop off in belgium and paris all along the way so i want to get tracks down so i’m gonna draw some cards i already have two pinks now when you draw cards in ticket drive you could you draw two cards either from the facebook display or from the top of the deck as soon as once taken from the face that display you replace it there if the locomotives the wild cards are in the display you can take one of them. But that’s your whole turn if you happen to get one from the deck. Though you still get two i want pinks so i take that one and replace it take that one and replace it and there’s no hand limit in this so now i’ve got myself for pinks and because it’s the paris map.
I have to place a track. I also have two whites so i’m gonna grab this size two white track here and i’m gonna place it there for the future because i already have two white cards that’s my turn. And we come over to little glass marty here who is all about bordeaux all of his roots come from bordeaux.
So he’s gonna be branching off from there for the start. We can’t get more of these as the game goes on he’s gonna do the same. I think he’s got two oranges.
So he is gonna grab two more oranges from here and he doesn’t really care what comes out because he wants the oranges. So that’s what they get replaced with and he is going to grab the size four orange. There is on that there are multiple copies.
There are three of each of the threes and two sizes for only one each of the four and five sizes. So if you’re both drawing the same color then you might find yourself not not getting what you want so i think he’s gonna make a start on going to marseille in a two player game. All of these double and triple tracks.
Here you can only put one down that is it now and for these that are already pre printed as soon as someone places one train down on there then you can’t go there for the rest of the game. Just to tighten the map up a little bit cuz. It’s quite big even here even with those restrictions.
Okay. It’s time for me to make my first big move. I think i’m gonna use my four pink cards along with two of my locomotives.
Which makes total of six of the same color to do a ferry like i want to here. At least one has to be a locomotive because there’s one printed there if there’s multiple. I need more locomotives and the gray just means it any color as long as they’re all the same color.
So i’m going to go from brest to cherbourg. I grab some trains now you only have 40 on the france map. I’m not sure how many you’d normally have i think around 50.
There are a lot more in the bag anyway so i fill this up. Though there we go and i dump all of these off into the discard pile and for building. A size six truck.
I get 15 fantasy points. So there we go i am on the board marty is gonna follow up of building. One of his trucks and he can take now when you build on one of these that we’ve now placed you remove this and then just put your trains in the place of it they could have left it there for a while in case.
I was collecting orange. But he hasn’t seen me take any orange. So there’s no need to do that he’s done a size four so he gets himself seven points.
Now i’ve already set myself up with lahav up here. So i am gonna use my two white train. My two white train cards to put out two red trains and size two gets you two points.
So i’m now on 17 and the little track piece goes back there’s another size for for marty to get from toulouse to montpellier. So he is going to draw cards and let’s see he’s already got two yellows. So he’s gonna grab another one and hope to find one more so he’s gonna draw from the top of the deck.
He gets a blue well come in handy sooner or later. I’m sure so. He’s got three yellows.
He is after four of something so he doesn’t really want to commit to that yet what does he want to do in future he wants to get to lamont. So that’s one of the four or threes of pierre he could start on his way by making this yellow and then just go that way first hmm yeah maybe he’ll do that he is gonna make this a size three yellow. And i can be looking at this and just thinking oh maybe i want this as it happens our things are quite separate to each other so i don’t know how much getting in the way.
We’re going to be doing until later the easiest way for me to get to paris is just these small tracks. But i don’t actually have the pink. One yeah.
I think i’m gonna take the red while it’s available. I’ve got one red card. So i’m going to just place that there and it’s one point marty is gonna draw some more cards let’s see he’s gonna go from one off the top of the deck.
It’s got a locomotive. Which is nice. I think he’ll go for another one so he’s got yellow.
Now. He’s got four yellows. So it was a mistake making that three yellows now because he’s got the four four here he asked to place one down.
He’s gonna place a four yellow. There he doesn’t necessarily have to go that way i’m gonna carry on and since i’ve only got this locomotive left it’s time for me to get some new cards. I would like pink let’s draw blind shall we i’ve got red and a locomotive so i could use one of these up now and maybe stop hoarding them.
But we’ll see i need to put a track act now i need to get to belgium. Calais and germany really i want to go up from one of these to get to belgium and then carry on along here to get to germany from one of these ways germany you’d like the other countries and this had just you know dead ends on the track somewhere. So i think i’m gonna do a size three read up there marty has got his four yellows.
He is going to spend them over here. So that track goes back. And he puts his little trains out size 4 gets you 7 points.
So he’s on 14 now i’m gonna draw some more now. I’m going for red’s there’s one out there so we replace it otherwise i don’t want that so i’m gonna draw from the top of the deck another red that’s very lucky very nice for me marty least three of a kind really to get to marseilles and he’s got two pink’s already so maybe he he’s definitely gonna draw cards he’s gonna draw off the top of the deck that is lucky isn’t it so he’s guys. Three pinks.
He’s already got a green. So he’s gonna grab another one from there actually he’s already got a black and they’re a two out here. So he’s gonna start working on black as well and a locomotive comes out there he needs to put a route out he is gonna make this a triple pink.
I’m gonna grab my triple red here and go to calais with the route that i made for myself over there and size three is four points. So i go up to 20. Do marty’s just doing the same with his size three track here.
And that’s gonna get him four points. Okay. All i need is just a pink card to do that love to wrong rouen wrong mm hmm.
So i’m just gonna draw another locomotive maybe. I should spend these locomotives now and a blue which i am happy with i need to place a track there so how am i going to get to where do i need to go to paris. I’ve done the paris almost as soon as i’ve done that i need to get to germany.
Now so anyway. I want to i can go this simple way. Let’s put a double blue down here or actually maybe to show off something different what you can do you’re placing a track anywhere.
So i can have it in my head. You know what marty is collecting and thinking about i don’t know where he’s going so i could think maybe he’s gonna come off. He’s gonna keep going this way somewhere or maybe.
He you know he was planning to go that way and he hasn’t done it he spent his yellows so maybe i can cut him off somewhere else i’m gonna grab this let’s grab this for yelling so he needs yellows any way you cut it to get to get up this way. So you can kind of use the track laying to block people off if you want to as well or limit them at least marty was quite annoyed about that he’s gonna draw heat is gonna grab that other black car and he’s got pink there he he can see that i need pink. So he’s gonna take that away for sure and a locomotive comes out he places a track and to be spiteful.
He could just he could think i’m going for germany and belgium isolating him and he’s this one yeah he could try and block me off that way i’m going to try drawing again just in the hopes that i got one pink. Another blue is okay cuz. I’ve got one there we go there’s a pink.
I have to place a track somewhere let’s place another it’s gonna be really annoying. If i need yellows at some point. I just place another one there and just really just try and wall marty in from he needs yellows any way you cut it wais.
He’s gonna draw some cards just so. He has some options and to try and get some yellows really he doesn’t get any yellow. But he is since he’s got three black carts.
He’s gonna before i can get to it and make it yellow. He’s gonna make that black. So at least he can get to here and then he because he wants to get to climb on four wrong.
I’m just guessing some of these pronunciations. But that is his turn my turn. While i’ve got the chance.
I am just going to spend that pink marty could have done that actually yeah. That that would probably been a good move by marty marty had a pink card. He should have just taken that route and made it harder for me he didn’t know because he didn’t think of it so i do that i got one point moz.
He’s gonna spend his three black cars. And well put some of his black kha’zix. So he’s branching off a little bit there and you do.
There is still the longest track bonus is ten points at the end. There is fifteen points for the globe. Who did the most destinations or actually not the old west side globetrotter.
This. There is also an old west side to them at the other side of this which you claim cities. You have you have a starting city.
And you have to build out from it rather than just being able to put tracks anywhere. So there’s a lot more getting in the way and if somebody controls a city and you complete a ticket for it they get the points. Not you so there’s a lot to be careful of in there once he gets four points for that once you’re 34.
So almost caught up to me. Though i want to get some more trains so i’m gonna get that blue one and i’m gonna draw a wild how would you get into the blue one wow there we go some nice look. And so oh that’s five so i’ve got i’ve got loads of locomotives though.
I’m gonna make this five blue. I need to put a track down. So let’s let’s let’s assume marty’s going this way and puts a yellow five.
There he doesn’t need that though he does need to draw cards. So he can put a track down. He’s gonna go for greens.
Because he already got one says that comes out oh. We should’ve drawn from the top of the deck would have been a locomotive when you draw three actually he couldn’t draw that green when there are three locomotives out you’ve just got everything and you draw five fresh ones. So still got a green.
Which is okay he has to put something out so. He is gonna put a triple green. They’re ready to connect up another one of his tickets i’m gonna draw again i’m gonna grab this blue which gives me five blues and then let’s go from the top of the deck yellow.
Which i haven’t got any of actually. I’ve only got locomotives and blues. I need to put a train out a track.
So let’s let’s just in cakes marty wants to go this way this is just the yellow zone. We’ve got a yellow card actually so marty he did something didn’t he yes he made that green track. He is going to spend his three green cards and get rid of that and put his train down that it’s another ticket complete maybe.
He’s gonna get some more destinations next time. So he gets four points for that and he is just overtaken meet. He’s on 26 to my 23.
Not for long. Though i have these five blues and so i am going to fill in paris to dijon and a size 5 is 10 whole points so i’m gonna leap back into the lead again and i am almost let’s see we’ve got to do we’ve got to connect to belgium and then we’ve got to get to germany which i’m going a roundabout way of doing on time so we could just go this way. I’m getting the points from the longer tracks.
Though because marty’s sat on his 26. I’m now on 33. What he’s gonna draw some cards.
He’s already got one pink. So he’s gonna grab another and hope to get another oh it’s a wild card. So he’s happy with that he’s gonna make this a triple pink because he needs to get to lamont all of this is blocked off.
But he can still get around this way. I think i’m going to draw some cards and try and find some white cards to get from calais to belgium. So let’s draw just blind.
I don’t really want any of these colors well trying to find white aren’t i found blue and orange. But i can put a new track out let’s sing. I don’t really want to put one of these dunks on i don’t know what i’m likely to get yet.
I don’t really know which way marty’s going. But there’s no three yellows. Let’s let’s make this one at yellow.
That’s probably the way marty would have gone actually so it’s his turn. He is going to claim that pink route that he put down by using one of his locomotives. So this one here he’s gonna grab and put the three trains down and he gets himself four points for that i’m gonna draw some more cards with this mish mosh.
So i am just gonna draw blind and see what i get two cards green and blue. So i’m building off a bit of blue because i need four of the same again. I don’t think i’ve mentioned actually these tracks that cross each other these are like possibilities as soon as one is put down the other one is cut off for the rest of the game.
I need to put a track out. So monte wasn’t quick enough. He should probably have drawn cards to stop me from doing this ridiculous yellow zone around marty sorry marty all he needs to do is get you know some yellows and then an art.
He’s already got an orange. He will actually just claim the orange now just in case it goes away. He’s gonna claim that and get his measly one point.
My turn just gonna draw a blind again hopefully get a white card. There’s one and maybe i’ll just spend a locomotive now and give up i i’ve got no more yelling to put out there is absolutely no more yellow. Things so let’s it’s hard to get it’s hard to get white as well actually let’s let’s get in marty’s way with some white tracks as well marty.
Knowing that all he needs to do is find two yellows to complete all of his tickets and the game. If you don’t know tickets right doesn’t end until somebody has only got two trains left so we’ve got a way to go yeah marty’s gonna draw new tickets on this map you draw four and have to keep at least one so these are the opportunities that he’s got he’s already in claremont for all and he has got two lamont. So to get to brest.
He just needs to go this way. It’s not far off is it i think that’s a possible good possibility rin is to bayon where is that that’s there to there. So that’s that’s not too far e.
That he’s almost connected please. It wouldn’t make it longer. Though this one is completely off the table.
This he’s miles away. He could do it quite easily you know it’s only two tracks. But it’s only five points.
It doesn’t connect to his existing train. I think this one definitely cuz it makes his train longer as well maybe this one cuz. He’s going through this and if he can get to bayon as well it makes his train longer leon he is all almost in i think he’s gonna take these the ring.
But remember in tickets a ride. If you don’t do a ticket you lose that many points. So i’ve just seen that marty has picked up three tickets if i want to be the globetrotter.
I’m gonna have to go heavy into tickets as well i’m going to be a bit more cautious about it though and try and complete these first i’m gonna spend my locomotive and a white to connect myself to belgium at last and i get two points marty’s gonna start drawing just random. I think no yellows yet. But he’s got two locomotives now so he could he could connect to i want four of a kind.
I’ve already got a rat. So i think i am just gonna draw reds for this occasion three locomotives have come out so unfortunately for me i lose that red. But there is another one waiting for me.
And there’s a white as well and a yellow. Do i take the yellow to just stop marty having any yellows. I think so it’s stopping me.
Though isn’t it and there’s another yellow right away. So. That was a waste of time.
Oh marty should have put a track down. He is going to let’s see he’s gonna guess that i’m going this way and put one down there i am. I think i’m gonna put one down for myself.
I’m gonna put a red four here because this is the way i’m actually going marty’s turn again he’s gonna draw because he wants this yellow and he’s gonna draw off the top in case he gets another one nope. But he’s got between his wild cards and everything he’s got the yellows he needs he’s then going to place this to blue up here to connect where he needs to i’m gonna draw cards under the red and off the top hoping for another red nope and i put a track down in case. He wants to go all the way to the top let’s make this one white just make it difficult for in the hallway.
Although of course. He can just cut through and go this way if he doesn’t want to struggle to get the whites marty’s turn. And he is gonna use a yellow and a locomotive to finally connect this up so that is another ticket done i think that’s his starting three finish now he hasn’t got though i’m going for a much longer thing.
So i might get the ten bonus points. For that because you don’t count you know all the branches and stuff you just make the longest trail so for doing it sighs he gets two points my turn. I’m not going to waste any more time hoping to draw a red and i spend one of my locomotives and three reds to do this track here so i am almost in germany and i could do it if i wanted to instead of waiting and putting a trap down.
There i could spend an orange which i’ve got and i haven’t got a red or a pink actually so i couldn’t do that one size four get me seven points. Mossy’s can draw he wants this blue. So he can get to the next city.
And he is going to draw that white as well just in case. He does want to do this for white track. There’s another one right there.
What track does he want to put out he see there’s reds available he needs to get to bayon doesn’t he he is going to put a red three there or if he goes this way if he goes this way his trains longer. Though isn’t though is it because he’d go this way yeah he’s just gonna go that way my turn i’m gonna draw just so i can put a track down here i’m gonna draw with the white. So marty can’t have it and let’s draw another see i’ve got i’m starting to get i’ve got two blues already so let’s draw another one come with you no he doesn’t need blues.
I can put a track down somewhere. Oh. I wanted to put my own track down.
Didn’t oh no and by being the spiteful fool. Earlier. There’s no yellows to put down.
Oh. There’s one yellow. Because marty did it yeah.
That was that would really limit me wouldn’t it now i’ve got the yellow cards drawing them to stop him having them. But can’t place any of these down. Because i’d left him here marcy’s going to spend his blues and do this track here that’s two points or i’m going to spend those two yellows and connect myself to germany.
I gets me two points and i have now i think i see breasts to paris breasts to belgium calais to germany yes. I’ve done all of my started things so next time. I’m gonna get some more and see with my remaining.
Trains can i connect to some new places marty was to draw cards he wants the reds to do that new route that he put down and he wants two whites as well so he’s gonna grab that white. I’m gonna get some new tickets so i draw four let’s see what i’ve got to lose to course. That’s all the way down here no good for me at all should walk to limoge.
So that’s i’m kind of connected to their limoge is here that would be a pain. But possible lille to dijon now. I’m already in dijon so all i would need to do is connect myself to lille that’s a definite i think rent to nancy there it is so that’s doable isn’t it we could do that with not too much hassle.
We could even if we get two more white’s we could connect to their first and gain morty’s way and thereby make the train even longer yeah. We will take these two so not as many as marty. If you know the globetrotter.
But he does need to complete them to get the globetrotter he’s gonna draw again. He’s gonna draw blind hoping to get the red. All the white that he needs he gets yellow and black he needs to place a track.
He’s just gonna place a four green there in case. I need to go there i want to draw so i can place a track down. I’m gonna draw from the top of the deck as well green isn’t that good to me orange could be good if i wanna do a big truck.
I’m just going to put a size two green down here that will collect me to connect me to lille if i draw a little bit sooner. Then i wouldn’t have done this truck. I could have gone here and just gone straight to lille marty’s gonna try some more drawing.
We’re both hoping to find these whites before the other one there we go. He’s got three now and he’s got a locomotive so i think he’s gonna go for it next turn he needs to place a track in case. He doesn’t get the white one he’s gonna place that red one there my turn unfortunately i only have one locomotive so i can’t steal that away from marty yet so let’s spend my greens.
I think which gets me two points and i’m going to go over here marty isn’t gonna wait any longer. He is going to use his locomotive. So he’s got four white’s there and he is going to connect himself to breast.
It’s a size four so that gets him seven points. So he is now on forty one he’s not far off connecting all this up is he think all he needs to do is connect to bail. Oh and leon he needs to get to leon as well my turn.
I now need red’s or i need to yellow and then a three up here. So let’s let’s draw a yellow since there’s one available and then let’s draw a wild that’s green. I need to place a track down so since i’ve already got three blues.
Let’s make this one besides three blue and we’ll go this way to connect two wrong wrens wrong marty needs one more red. He’s gonna draw blind twice. He’s got a rat and he’s got two greens.
Now he’s got three blacks already there so he is gonna make this one today needs to connect three black. I’m gonna grab this sized one i was gonna do the the three blue first but then i realized that marty could possibly just take this one away from here mess. The whole thing up so at one point for that forty seven to forty.
One now marty will while while i remember for him. He will claim that route that he just got there to leon that’s four points. So he’s now caught up to forty five there i’m gonna spend my three blues and that’s four points isn’t it fifty one and i’m now connected to another city.
I wanted to connect to so where am i on connections now my new ones were lil to dijon. I’ve done that neurontin on see i could go on i could go either this way. And then that only makes my frame one longer.
If i did that though so yeah we’d do this one maybe see what’s easiest we’ll see what cards i’ve got i just need to get to that city and then i’ve done all my tickets marty is gonna claim i believe the last card he needs to connect all of his tickets. So. He’s done.
Three. There one two three. I believe yeah.
Lamont aboard. Oh. He is in yep.
He’s done. That he’s done that he is in marseilles. He has done that now he’s done that and he’s done that so maybe next turn.
He’s going to draw some tickets. I want to draw some cards just because i need a track to go down. So i’m going to draw these oranges.
And i’m gonna put a double white here or maybe now i’ve got four oranges. I could just go this way and then i get more points for actually laying the track. Now does marty want to risk getting a new ticket he has to keep one remember and it’s negative points.
If he doesn’t do it on the other hand if he gets something he’s already connected to that’s really good. But he’s only got two three four five trains to do it with if he does need to connect to somewhere new. So you know risk it or he could just end the game.
They can’t in the game. He’s only got two greens. He’s gonna go for new tickets.
So he has to keep one what’s he got raines took all the arm. He’s almost in all the arm. Where is the other one oh.
It’s there so that’s another that’s a bit of a detour. He could do it. He’s got enough hasn’t he he’s only got just enough trains to do that and he would need the right colors to be able to get there.
It’s maybe. If he has to take one remember paris. He isn’t in oh no it’s not too hard to get to but he isn’t on that one that would be a good one for me.
I’ve already done that one so that’s a no i think calais to nantes where yeah. We know a calais is he’s not in that one either. I think that’s too far to do leon to toulouse where is to lose.
He is already in one to lose. He’s already end leon. He’s already in does he take this it’s not very far.
I don’t think he does he’s just gaining himself seven points. He’s not gonna risk doing one that he might not be able to complete. He’s just gonna draw next time and trying in the game before i can complete my stuff.
Bart completed. A van. I i can just do four oranges connect this up one two three four.
I’ve still got four trains left. So i haven’t ended the game four is seven points. So that is 58 mas.
He’s gonna draw. He’s hoping for a green. So he’s got more of kind nope and he’ll just take a yellow.
Then should’ve drawn the yellow first there’s a cream. He needs to put a track down let’s make his train a bit longer. He’s gonna put a size.
Two green here do i risk drawing tickets. I think so we need some risk here. And i want to be the globetrotter so morehouse leon.
I’m definitely you know marty’s only on not me nope. Nancy tomas. Say.
I am in nancy marseille is a mile away. So no. No these are all come out these are good for marty and not me.
Oh. No i’m gonna have to take one let’s see getting tilly on wouldn’t be that bad i need to spend two more greens. So we’ll have to take that one and hope that i can do it marty’s turn.
He’s gonna spend his greens to do this track here that he’s just a he’s just waiting the game out really two points to him i’m gonna draw that green and i’ve got enough actually i’ve got my locomotive and it gets replaced by paint cultural blind marty can just fill in one of these let’s just say that was already placed. He’ll get two points and he ends the game so everyone else gets one more turn so unfortunately for marty. I can finish the ticket that i took at the end and put my three here marty may have ended up with a longer train let’s sing and i get 4 points for putting that size 3 down.
So i definitely did tracked that all with more i’ve got 62 to marty’s 49. Let’s see how the tickets went so i’ve checked and i’m pretty sure we’ve. Both done our things so i get 1928 40.
49. 55. Editor 62.
So at 117. I think marty’s are worth a bit more 7 13. 23.
34. 44. 55.
62. That puts him on 111. So he’s caught up some for the globetrotter i did 6 tickets but marty did 7.
So that’s 15 points for him so he’s on 26100 and 26. Now so he’s in the lead well let’s seed that so it’s all gonna come down to the longest train. If i do it i win i’ll get one more point than marty if marty wins.
He’ll rock it off to the lead. So let’s see let’s work it out. So.
Much for my longest train. Starts. From.
Here. 1. 2.
3. 4. 5.
6. 7. 8.
9. 10. 11.
12. 13. 14.
15. 16. 17.
18. 19. 20.
21. 22. 23.
24. 25. Marty’s.
I believe he would just start from here. And work. His way.
All the way. Up. 1 2.
3. 4. 5.
6. 7. 8.
