Meeple League Ticket to Ride Tournament

In Ticket to Ride players collect cards of various types of train cars they then use to claim railway routes in North America. The longer the routes, the more points they earn. Additional points come to those who fulfill Destination Tickets – goal cards that connect distant cities; and to the player who builds the longest continuous route. We will be playing with the USA 1910 expansion pack which adds 35 new 1910 Destination Tickets, a GlobeTrotter Bonus card for completing the most tickets, 4 Mystery Train Destination Tickets originally provided in the Ticket to Ride: Mystery Train Expansion expansion, and a complete replacement deck of the 141 cards from the original game deck (30 Destination Tickets (4 cards have a reduced value from Ticket to Ride), 110 Train Cards, and 1 Longest Route Bonus Card (Trans America Express))

This tournament will use the official Ticket to Ride 1910 (Mega) version with rules as published by Days of Wonder. Games will be supplied. 

Format

16 player heat, followed immediately by a 4 player final.

If any of the winners are not able to play in the final, the closest second-place players will also advance to the final. “Closest” is defined by the percentage of the winner’s score the player in second place had, not by the difference between the highest score and the second-highest score.

Tie Breakers

The following tiebreakers will be used to determine finish order within a game:

  1. Total Score
  2. Player who has completed the most destination tickets
  3. Player with the Longest Continuous Path Card
