Ticket to Ride Germany Board Game
In addition to scoring points for tickets, whenever a player places a route on the board, they claim a passenger from the two cities that form the endpoints for that route (assuming that the passengers have not already been claimed). At the end of the game, whoever has the most passengers of each of the six colors scores 20 points for that color; whoever has the secondmost passengers in a color scores 10 points. Whoever has the most points at the end of the game wins.
Ticket to Ride: Germany combines most of Zug um Zug: Deutschland and the Deutschland 1902 expansion in one box. Zug um Zug: Deutschland, published solely for the German and Austrian market, consisted of the same map as Ticket to Ride: Märklin, but ZuZ:D didn't include the passenger mechanism from Märklin in which players scored additional points by moving passengers from city to city. The Deutschland 1902 expansion introduced a different method of scoring passengers, and that method is now present in this collection.

This is a base game so everything you need is included. The deviation for this particular TTR is the collection of passengers which is fun but adds far to much to the end game scoring - we decided very quickly to halve the bonus scores (10 and 5 rather than 20 and 10) which worked well and felt fairer. It does take a bit of time to puzzle out the city names, the script is fitting but hard to read.
We already have TTR US and Europe - and they each have their own challenge. Love TTR German and the Meepples addition here as it gives the game a twist and makes it more fun!
Good game, easy to get the hang of. Have really enjoyed it. Good price, good quality board, card and meeples.
Had it a week and already investing in another since we’ve played it daily.
