You know you've been playing too much Ticket to Ride... Wed, 13 February 2013 07:13
So tonight I was at Old Chicago and on one of the TVs they were showing the recap of the Portland-Miami game. I looked up and saw the names on the scoreboard and my first thought was, "That's a pretty long ticket. I wonder how many points that is." Then I slapped myself in the face. (23, in case you were curious). Shocked

If there is news about some US city, say Denver, I always think how I could get there with TTR and what routes should I use. SF- Salt Lake City- Denver etc.

I often think like this as well with real travels. Most of my travelling are somewhere between Helsinki and Copenhagen, so the TTR journeys happen with Nordic Countries map. Driving from Helsinki to Tampere (200km) is short and scores only 1 point. Same with Helsinki to Turku (200km). Ferries from Helsinki to Tallinn score only 1 point as well but a ferry from Helsinki to Stockholm is a long 7 point yellow route. Visiting Aarhus, Denmark scored 11 points and so on.

It's no fun to think about journeys on Europe map, because Helsinki is just missing. It wasn't a capitol city back in 1912. Anyway, there should have been a possibility to hop on a ferry in the middle of Stockholm-Petrograd megaroute!
