about this item

Players of all ages can now venture across America by train in Alan R. Moon's Ticket to Ride: First Journey. With a brand new map and simplified rules, First Journey is the perfect way to introduce new players to the game of cross-country travel. Just like in Ticket to Ride, players collect train cards, claim routes, and try to connect cities coast-to-coast. In First Journey, though, routes are shorter, train cards are drawn straight from the deck, and the game ends when one player completes six tickets, claiming the Golden Ticket as their prize. Climb aboard, travelers, your incredible First Journey awaits!

Fun for the whole Family

My kids are 8 and 5 so finding games the 8-year old enjoys is easy but not so much for the 5-year old. The big kids don;t find the kiddie games as much fun and the 5-year doesn't like or has trouble following the big kid games. Few games to a good job of bridging the gap. King of Tokyo is a great ex...see moreof the reviewer's review

Bought this game for our grandson who is 6 years old. Our family loves to play the adult version of Ticket To Ride - but it is little more complicated and takes a longer time to play it. Kids ages 5 to 8 will like this game as it is great for shorter attention spans and yet they learn locations of...see moreof the reviewer's review

We purchased this game for our 7 year old. We didn't realize how fun the entire family would have. I have never played the original Ticket to Ride game, but this one is just right. The rules are simple: be the first to complete 6 tickets, or have the most if a player runs out of trains. It's a great...see moreof the reviewer's review

This is a pared-down version of the original ticket to ride. You do not count points around the board, you do not deliberate and choose which tickets you keep, and you do not get points for different-sized routes. You do draw train cards or play, build routes, and get more ticket challenges (each ti...see moreof the reviewer's review

Excellent game! For families where the adult version of Ticket to Ride is popular, this is a must-have for the little ones. And even if you have no idea how the adult game is played, I'm sure this edition would still be fun. My five-year-old caught on to the game very quickly and after playing it tw...see moreof the reviewer's review

We have a family addiction to the Ticket to Ride Board Games. We ordered the First Journey for our youngest member. We absolutely love it. The rules are easy to follow and the pictures allow the child to see location clearly. As a family we owe 6 other Ticket to Ride boardgames (two are not shown in...see moreof the reviewer's review

Great for my kids, almost 6 and 8. Not as time consuming as the other version. Highly recommend!

My seven year old can play the original game just fine, but it's tough for my 4 year old. The 4 year old can play this with a little guidance, and the 7 year old can beat us. We like that this is much shorter than the original. They original is great if you have a block of time set aside for it, but...see moreof the reviewer's review
