Rules Question - Longest Route Card Sun, 09 May 2004 07:11
By reading the rule book we believe that the Longest Continuous Path card should measure routes (conections between two cities).
But after examining the little example card we have determined the the rules should have stated the longest path of train cars, not routes at all.

Please help us by clarifing which is correct or if we are just misreading the rules.

By the way, Thank You for such a wonderful game.

I am not sure I understand the distinction you make between routes and train cars? the routes are made of train cars layed out.
In any case the answer is "the longest continuous path of train cars without ever picking/passing on the same train car twice". So loops through a city are permitted, but only as long as you use different tracks/trains coming in/out of said city.

You're right: add the number of train cars to discover the "lenght" of a route (and add the continuos routes of each player to assign the bonus to the player with the highest total).

Wait, I thought the player with the longest route gets a 10 point bonus, not the number of routes which make up the longest path. 10 point bonus is correct, right?

Yes, 10 points (I was only explaining HOW to calculate WHO gets the bonus Smile ).

Thank you for the clarification! This one had us stumped too. Thought it meant to count the number of continuos routes, not the number of trains in those routes.

Please forgive me if this is answered elsewhere; I've looked everywhere.

Ticket to Ride Original Board Game edition

The scoring table card included in the game shows the value of each route length. At the bottom of the chart it shows "train cars 45 (x 5) = 225".

This information is not in the rule book. Does anyone else read this to mean if a player builds a 45-car length continuous route in the game, they receive a 225 point bonus instead of the 10 point longest path bonus?

Short answer; no. This is the first time someone has thought it counts for 225 points. Very few games get close to that score! Cool

I don't have the rules in front of me, but I think the number you're looking at is 45 trains per color x 5 players (or 5 different colors) meaning that you get 225 trains with your set. The bonus for having the longest route is just a 10 point bump to your score.

I hope this helps clear things up. Enjoy the game! Smile

Likely so. It just seemed an odd placement to point out some simple math. Very Happy

Enjoy the game?? None of us have slept since Christmas, and now we're shopping for expansions today. That would be yes!!

Thanks for the speedy response.

My pleasure! Let us know in a new thread what you're looking for in an expansion and I'm sure someone will be happy to give advice about their favorite expansions.
