India Scoring Tue, 14 January 2014 00:19
Hi Ticket To Ride Gurus: My family has nearly all of the ticket to ride expansions but we are completely baffled by the India Mandala scoring. Here is the text from the PDF for reference:

Each player may also earn Grand Tour of India
bonuses. Any Ticket whose 2 Destination Cities are
linked via at least 2 distinct continuous paths of its
owner's plastic trains qualifies for a Grand Tour bonus.
These 2 paths may intersect, but cannot share trains.
The size of a player's bonus varies depending on the number of his qualifying Tickets, as per the Mandala (“Circle” in Sanskrit) bonus
table shown on the Map. A player’s first and second qualifying Tickets are worth +5 points each, with the next three worth +10 each. Any qualifying Tickets beyond the fifth one earn no additional points (i.e. the largest bonus a player can receive for his Grand Tour tickets is 40 points). These bonuses are scored in addition to the points earned for completing the Tickets themselves, of course.


Can someone please explain this with a couple of examples? We are completely confused by it...

You ROCK! Very Happy Thanks. This explanation did it for us.

Pick two cities you have a ticket for. Do you have TWO ways to get between the two cities that in no way share trains (routes can cross, but not overlap)? If the answer is yes, that ticket qualifies for the Mandala bonus.

Count up how many tickets qualify, check the table, score that many points.
