Ticket To Ride Online, or How I wasted away the hours....

As I mentioned previously, I am finishing up my Master's thesis this week and although it is going well, I find I need to take a lot of short breaks away from writing. One of my great reliefs and/or distractions has been TTR Online. I am a massive fan of the board game, having 5 editions, and love that I can play a round online in 10-20 minutes.

Many people don't realize that if you own a TTR edition there is a code in the rules book that let's you sign on and play for free. I just can't seem to get sick of this game, live or online. The only drawback to online is that they don't have my two favourite maps, Germany (Marklin) and the Nordic Countries. Maybe they'll bring in Nordic soon as it's such a great 3-player game.

I'm wondering if I'm actually prepping a bit for my visit home with Mom. She LOVES Ticket To RIde and I imagine we'll be playing a few games of her copies when I'm back in August...

Sidenote 1: Played Le Havre finally. Good game but quite long. Easy to explain, hard to figure out. I imagine it will grow on me quickly.

Sidenote 2: Dominion: Intrigue out today! Oh, it's gonna be a long night....
