Days of Wonder - Ticket to Ride; France & The Wild West

I ran across the most recent addition to the Ticket to Ride family from Days of Wonder. Like the rest of the Ticket to Ride games this one uses the core rules from Ticket to Ride with a twist. You do not lay your train cars right away to claim a line, you must first lay the roadbed. When its your turn again and if it is still open you may claim the line. You also choose the color of the roadbed, so there are some interesting strategies around the claiming of lines. Another interesting aspect is that you can cut off other lines that have yet to have roadbed laid on them and in this way cut off access to other cities. I'm looking forward to the strategies that this is going to create.

I haven't had a chance to look at the Wild West game which resides on the flip side of the France board. I'll cover that in a different post.
