Five Tribes… And a Whole New World

Tabletop gaming has vastly changed. The shelves of Kmart now include Pandemic, Crowdfunding has so many various and wonderful ideas being implemented, and there are now webseries about my favourite hobby.

Ticket to Ride: Europe… All aboard the colour express.

I was apprehensive when my eight year old sister decided she wanted to play 'Ticket to Ride: Europe'. Not because she's not smart; as I said, we come from intelligent genes. But she's young and easily distracted. And it's got a couple of complicated elements the original doesn't. I sensed a bogged down session with many frustrations ahead. My dad suggested maybe they work together on a team for this game, and she could play the next. But she was adamant that she wanted to do it for herself.
