FAMILY MOMENT MONDAY
Need to teach your child how to build a railroad stretching from California to New York? WAIT... no, you don't? Well, then.... you need to to play the game Ticket To Ride and then you'll think other wise.
Ticket To Ride is a wonderfully fun and easy game where players are trying to travel to as many cities as possible, all along trying to complete destination goals where players connect/build a railroad between two cities.
The game can be played by 2 - 5 players and recommended for ages 8 and up, but I think that some younger children could play it. Besides being playing Ticket To Ride for just the pure pleasure of it, it is a nice way to have the children learn cities, color and strategy.
It has won the Orgins Award for Best Board Game of 2004, Diane Jones Award in 2005, the International Gamers Award in 2005, and several others. I definitely cho cho choooose this game (insert chorny laugh here). You can get in online anywhere from $25.00 to $39.00
