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. ∂ π ∑ ∏ π ª ª ∫ 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. Ferries ∫ 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 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! Example 3 To claim the ferry route from Stavanger to Kristiansand, a player must use at least 1 Locomotive card along with his Orange Train Car cards. [T2RNordic] rules EN 2015_TTR2 rules Nordic EN 18/05/15 15:51 Page1 When attempting to claim a Tunnel route, a player first lays Each Destination Ticket includes the name of two cities on the map and a down the number of cards required.

Cards revealed A player can use his turn to draw more Destination Ticket cards. To do so, he draws 3 new cards from the top of the Destination Ticket deck. He must keep at least one of the cards, but may also keep two or all three if he chooses. If there are less than 3 Destination Tickets left in the deck, the player only draws what cards are available. Any returned cards are removed Example 3 from the game and put back in the box.
