I’ve been playing a lot of the board game (and soon apparently to be a reality gameshow) Ticket to Ride recently, specifically we’ve been trying to explore more of the variants – everyone loves Europe, I’ve got a personal love of the stocks and shares aspect of the Pennsylvania board, and I tried playing the UK board last night but it was, frankly, a bit out there with its rules variants. Anyway, what’s your favourite expansion?
I wanted to illustrate the post with a video. Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be copies of Gyles Brandreth’s Railway Carriage Game on Youtube. Gladiators: Train 2 Win a bit too clever. The best in terms of most obscure then is probably Commuter Quiz, the cryptic crossword competition from the mid-eighties.
