Ticket to Ride Nordic Countries
From the Publisher...
Ticket to Ride Nordic Countries takes you on a Nordic adventure through Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden as you travel to the great northern cities of Copenhagen, Oslo, Helsinki and Stockholm. Visit Norway's beautiful fjords and the magnificent mountain scenery on the Rauma Railway. Breathe in the salt air of the busy Swedish ports on the Baltic Sea. Ride through the Danish countryside where Vikings once walked. Hop-on the Finnish railway and travel across the Arctic Circle to the land of the Midnight Sun.

|It is great that this game is available again. My wife and I love to play this board and enjoy the different colored trains with the winter theme. I find it more challenging than TTR Switzerland but love having two options for smaller groups.
|I really likes this game. Its great for 2 players. Adding a third might make you a little frustrated, the two player version is the best way to go about it. I highly recommend it.
|I love Nordic Countries! The board is tighter, and uses ferries, tunnels, and long routes to make the game an epic challenge. This is a favorite game to play with my wife.
|Surely most people finding there way to look at this game are already at least familiar with the Ticket to Ride game. This version is the version you want if you plan on only playing with 2 people on most occasions. The map is very condensed compared to the others which leads to more interaction and strategy throughout the game.
|While this game is a bit more of an investment than the new Switzerland map, it's a great and challenging 2 to 3 player version of the game. Glad it's back in print!
|This version of Ticket to Ride is a blast to play. So far I've only played it with 2, but it was a lot of fun. I think playing with 3 would be even better! The 27 point path is crazy too!
|If you love ticket to ride but never have more than two or three people to play with, this is the game for you. It is everything you love about ticket to ride in a smaller package that is worth the purchase even if you have the original.

|I'm a huge fan of the Ticket to Ride series, and Nordic Countries definitely does not disappoint! I like how it's geared towards 2-3 players, since it's often difficult to get the entire gaming gang over for a game. With that said, the cutthroat and intensity level of the game, still remains high!
|This limited edition is beautifully illustrated. especially like the fact that all the train cars are covered in snow. Much more challenging than other TTRs because of all the tunnel and ferry routes. Very easy to block other players, so beware of people who aren't good sports! Works well with just 2 people.
