Setting up the Game
Place the board map in the center of the table. Each player takes a set of 40 Colored Train Cars
along with its matching Scoring Marker. Each player places his Scoring Marker on the starting
location next to the 100 number
on the Scoring Track running along the map's border.
Throughout the game, each time a player scores points, he will advance his marker accordingly.
Shuffle the Train Car cards and deal a starting hand of 4 cards to each player . Place the
remaining deck of Train Car cards near the board and turn the top five cards from the deck
face-up .
Place the Globetrotter Bonus card face up next to the board .
Shuffle the Destination Ticket cards and deal 5 cards to each player . The Destination
Ticket deck is then placed next to the board . Each player looks at their Destination
Tickets and decides which ones they wish to keep. A player must keep at least two, but may
keep all five if he chooses. Any returned cards are removed from the game and put back
in the box. Players keep their Destination Tickets secret until the end of the game.
You are now ready to begin.
Object of the Game
The object of the game is to score the highest number of total points. Points can be scored by:
u Claiming a Route between two adjacent cities on the map;
u Successfully completing a Continuous Path of routes between two cities listed on your
Destination Ticket(s);
u Completing the most Destination Tickets.
Points are deducted if you do not successfully complete the route on any given Destination
Tickets you kept.
The Game Turn
The player who is the most experienced traveler goes first. Play then proceeds clockwise around the
table, each player taking one turn at a time until the game ends. On his turn, a player must perform
one (and only one) of the following three actions:
Draw Train Car cards – The player may draw 2 Train Car cards. He may take any one of the face-up
cards or he may draw the top card from the deck (this is a blind draw). If he draws a face up card, he
immediately turns a replacement card face-up from the deck. He then draws his second card, either from
the face up cards or from the top of the deck.
Note: Unlike most Ticket To Ride games there is no restriction on the number of Locomotive cards you may draw per turn.
Claim a Route – The player may claim a route on the board by playing a set of Train Car cards that match the color and length of the route and
then placing one of his colored trains on each space of that route. He then records his score by moving his Scoring Marker the appropriate number
of spaces (see Route Scoring Table) along the Scoring Track on the board.
[T2RNordic] rules EN 2015_TTR2 rules Nordic EN 18/05/15 15:52 Page4
Draw Destination Tickets – The player may draw 3 Destination Tickets from the top of the deck. He must keep at least one of them, but he may
keep two or all three if he chooses. Any returned cards are removed from the game and put back in the box, not to return to the game.
Train Car Cards
There are 8 types of regular Train Car cards, plus Locomotive cards. The colors of each type of Train Car card match various routes between cities on
the board – Purple, Blue, Orange, White, Green, Yellow, Black, and Red.
Locomotives are multi-colored and act as a wild card that can be part of a set of cards only when claiming Tunnel
or Ferry routes (see Tunnels and Ferries below). Locomotive cards can complement or replace the colored
cards required to claim a Tunnel or Ferry route, but they can never be used to help claim a regular route.
A player may have any number of cards in his hand at any time.
When the deck is exhausted, the discards are reshuffled into a new draw pile deck. The cards should
be shuffled thoroughly, since all the cards have been discarded in sets. In the unlikely event that
there are no cards left in the deck and there are no discards (because players are hoarding many
cards in their hands), a player cannot draw Train Car Cards. Instead he may only Claim a Route
or draw Destination Ticket cards.
Claiming Routes
To claim a route, a player must play a set of cards equal to the number of
spaces in the route. A set of cards must be of the same color. Most routes
require a specific type of set. For example a Blue route must be claimed
using blue-colored Train Car cards. Some routes – those that are Gray
colored – can be claimed using a set of cards of any one color.
The Murmansk-Lieksa route is an exception. On this route, a player
can use any four cards (including locomotives) as a substitute for a card
of any color. Example: A player could claim the route by playing 7 green
cards and any 8 other cards.
When a route is claimed, the player places one of his plastic trains in
each of the spaces of the route. All the cards in the set used to claim the
route are then placed in a discard pile next to the draw pile.
A player may claim any open route on the board. He is never required
to connect to any of his previously played routes. A player may only claim
a maximum of one route, hence connect two adjacent cities, never more,
on his turn.
Some cities are connected by Double-Routes. One player cannot claim
both routes to the same cities.
Important note: In 2 player games, only one of the Double-Routes can be
used. A player can claim either of the two routes between cities, but the
other route is then closed to other players.
Example 1
To claim the yellow route, a player
would need a set of two yellow
Train Car cards.
Example 2
To claim the gray route, a player
could use any set of three Train
Car cards, as long as they are
the same type.
Ferries are special routes linking two adjacent cities across a body of water. They are easily
identified by the Locomotive icon(s) featured on at least one of the spaces making the route.
To claim a Ferry Route, a player must play a Locomotive card for each locomotive
symbol on the route, and the usual set of cards of the proper color for the remaining
spaces of that Ferry Route.
In addition:
u A player can play additional Locomotive cards as a substitute for a color card
u Any three cards can be used as a substitute for a Locomotive card
Tunnels are special routes that are easily identified by the special tunnel marks and outlines
surrounding each of their spaces.
What makes a tunnel special is that a player is never quite certain just how long the route he
is trying to claim will be!
