Don't underestimate children, I would expect an 8 year old to be able to play most TTR versions - if not all versions.

And in doing so it will increase there knowledge of geography. My son (and wife) have improved their geographical knowledge playing TTR.

I would agree with Phread! Ticket to Ride is a simple enough concept that once a kid has learned it, he or she will be able to play almost any of the versions. I would suggest that you start with the USA map, though, because it is the most basic. Cool

Agreed, children can do pretty much anything if you teach them right...

Switzerland is easy, but the easiest is definitely USA.

I would agree that USA is the best to start with as it is the simplest and most straight-forward. It also has the advantage that you can upgrade to 1910 megagame for added complexity with same basic board considerations. Further, since you are an American (according to your profile), USA/Canada is probably the best starting-place for geography learning.
