Played one of the new Ticket to Ride maps (the Old West) last night. It was actually really cool. When you put a route down, you can spend 2 of the same colour cards to put a station in one of the two cities (and you start the game putting a city down). All routes you take must be connected to one of your cities, so no jumping all over the map.
The conceit is that if you place a route connected to somebody else's city, they get the points, not you. If there are two stations, then both players get the points (or one player gets double if they have both).
You still complete the tickets and get the points for those at the end of the game, but the in-game scoring may not go to you.
I ended up getting 72 points in tickets, jumping into first place ahead of somebody who had six tickets but failed one of his (I beat him by 4 points).
It was an interesting twist on the whole thing. When you're taking extra tickets, you have to take into account whether any additional routes you have to build will be giving you points or not.
I also did my "New to Me" games for February on my blog, with a massive 8 games.
