Quick Review - First, Ticket to Ride is a great game, and a favorite at Gaming with Chuck HQ. But, this is a quick review of the iPad implementation.
It is great. Very colorful, easy to navigate, intuitive, and has a nice timing to the effects and feedback to the user. A great game. And many of the published boards are available as in game purchases to expand your choices.
One of the things that makes this title rise from Very Good to Great, however, is the ability to play locally over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. If you have two folks with iPads, they can both log into the game, and play if they are in the same locale. So no sharing the device, no accidentally seeing your opponent's cards, none of that. A great experience.
