The Judging Panel has announced the winner of the 2017 Best Children’s Game Winner
Ticket To Ride: First Journey
Ticket To Ride: First Journey takes the classic game of Ticket to Ride and makes it playable for young children and their parents.
Players will receive two tickets, each showing two cities which they need to connect by train tracks. To lay a track, they’ll need to pay cards showing the track colour. When they complete a ticket, they grab a new ticket to complete. The first player to complete 6 tickets wins.
The judging panel found the game to be fun for the whole family. Ticket To Ride: First Journey finds the balance between simplicity (no reading required to play) and strategy, it’s simple enough for the youngest children to be able to enjoy, but enough strategy to entertain parents.
