Ticket to Ride
Stupendous game. There is just so much fun to be had in crafting these different rail lines. I love the game and haven't played a session yet that wasn't bliss.
The Settlers of Catan is a great game- but you can only play with 4 people! This extention is a MUST if you want to play with more of a party.
My housie was once obsessed with this game. German made, the object is to manage and build cities and roads and such. Trust me, the allure comes much more once you play, which is why this game has won multiple awards
I've only played this game on a video game console, but I'd love to have an edition to take wherever I go... places that may or may not have video game access.
