Editors' review

Ticket to Ride is a brilliant adaptation of one of the bestselling board games of the last decade. Perfectly capturing the look and feel of Days of Wonders' first and most ambitious game, Ticket to Ride plays seamlessly on the iPad, whether you want to take on the computer AI, connect with players through Game Center, or challenge your friends in a pass-and-play match.

Pros

Fast and intuitive play: Whether you've played Ticket to Ride before or not, the app is very easy to pick up and learn. A tutorial mode shows you the basics, and the variable difficulty allows you to decide just how challenging the game will be. There are also numerous upgrades available including new maps and alternate rules that keep it fast and fun for hours, whether alone or with friends.

Highly polished version of the board game: Ticket to Ride is a perfect example of how to convert a board game into a digital experience, speeding up play without removing the tactile feel of pulling cards and tracking down your routes. The visuals are incredible, the sound effects are fun, and the upgrades you can purchase add depth to the game over and over again.

Cons

A little too fast: An experienced player can finish a game of Ticket to Ride in about 15-20 minutes, almost three times faster than the board game. That's great for someone powering through games to unlock achievements, but it can make tracking the cards your opponents pull and the routes they're creating harder. It's a small issue, but it's one to keep in mind if you're new to the game.

Cost of expansion:The core game you would get in the box is all here for the initial cost of entry, but all other expansions will cost you -- even the smaller ones that only add new cards and routes to the game. Again, this is a small quibble, and the game costs only a fraction of what the board game does, but keep cost in mind.

Bottom Line

Ticket to Ride is one of the best board game-to-iOS conversions available. It is incredibly addictive and a near pitch-perfect rendition of one of the most beloved board games of the 21st century. This makes it a must download for anyone who loves board games.
