Takes a light game and froths it into ghost-meringue. Rolling dice is fun, and that's pretty much all you're gonna get out of this. The whole experience is nothing but scrotum-tingly gamblin'... but even that bit is castrated by only having one re-roll.
In the end this is just about the equipment: if you like the clatter of dice in a cup and want to do that while you ride tickets, go for it. Otherwise, I had the mad desire to play real Ticket to Ride while playing this.
UPDATE: I'm liking this more and more. It makes the game super-short, and it's really easy to pull off some spectacular blocking. If the game were longer with screwage of that magnitude, it would just piss people off. If the game were just as short and everyone had to play like Fonzie, it'd be boring. As is, it's the perfect mix—a completely different game from Ticket to Ride proper.
