Ticket to Ride Nordic Countries takes you on a Nordic adventure through Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden as you travel to the great northern cities of Copenhagen, Oslo, Helsinki and Stockholm. Visit Norway's beautiful fjords and the magnificent mountain scenery on the Rauma Railway. Breathe in the salt air of the busy Swedish ports on the Baltic Sea. Ride through the Danish countryside where Vikings once walked. Hop-on the Finnish railway and travel across the Arctic Circle to the land of the Midnight Sun.
Players collect cards of various types of train cars that enable them to claim railway routes and pass through tunnels and onto ferries, as they connect cities throughout the Nordic Countries.
As with previous versions, the game remains elegant, can be learned in 5 minutes and provides hours of fun for families and experienced gamers alike.

The same basic rules apply as from the original series, including tunnels and ferries. The map features Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and a bit of Arctic Russia (Murmansk). There is also an excursion to Tallinn, capital of Estonia. The carriage cards are of the usual design, except they have a covering of snow on top. Indeed, the whole game has an air of Christmas about it!
Changes from the original concept include no limit on the number of loco cards that can be drawn; and a globetrotter card worth ten points for the most completed tickets (instead of ten points for the longest route in the other games).
This version is not particularly radical enough perhaps to warrant purchase for those already with an earlier version, except I suppose if, like me, you are a completist and a bit f a nut for the game. But if you want a version for the family or friends to play in the cold frosty months, then this perhaps is a worthy version, given its winter feel.
The game is specifically designed for 2/3 players and provides a tight,exciting experience. Competition is intense for certain key routes. The southern and eastern parts of the board have many short, easier to complete but lower scoring routes, whilst the northern and western have longer, difficult to make high scoring tickets. There is even a 9 card 27 point route to Murmansk which can be made. All 4 Scandanavian countries are well represented,and my knowledge of the geography is improving!
The game is closest to Ticket to Ride Switzerland. If you have mostly just 2 or 3 people playing, this is a better, more challenging and competitive game than Ticket to Ride Europe(there no stations to make things easier). The game map is tighter than the USA game .. there are fewer alternatives if others chase your routes. I have played this and ended with a minus score, so badly wrong did things go!
Exceptionally lovely to look at; a somewhat different variant to the original game; my wife and I play this more than any of the other TtRs.
A great tweak to the format, ideal for 2 / 3 players over a bigger map and much tighter play with different points and rules adding to the variation and enjoyment!
The variations between both the European and Nordic are slight so it is easy to adapt to which ever game you are playing. I would recommend the Ticket To Ride games to any family who enjoy board games. However please note that it is only the American,European or Nordic versions that are complete games - the other countries are extension packs and you need one of the above to be able to play them.
I purchased the first one because of the good reviews and it is one of the most enjoyable all round games that I have played for years. Also the games seem to take about 1hr to play so you can just enjoy one fairly shortish game or go on to play again.
New features include tunnels (turn over top 3 cards of train deck, if any of the same colour trains (or locomotives) are revealed pay these in addition to the trains already paid) and ferries (pay as many locomotives as indicated on the track), which give the game a new twist.
Only negative I have, is with the map itself, there are quite large gaps where more cities could have been placed, particularly in Finland. However, this does not detract from the game.

One of the best Ticket to Ride versions. This one plays really well with two players. It also works well for three, but tactics are noticeably different when you have three. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Mrs. J. Proctor
