Ticket to Ride is a game of connecting various cities to one another following coloured routes.
I’ve done a bit of analysis on the original game, counting the number of connections, and their length. I thought it might be useful for someone else, so I’m sharing it here.
- 36 cities
- 78 total routes
- 22 doubled routes
So we have a total of 100 possible connections.
If we analyse them by the colour of the edge, then we see the following.
The first number in a set shows the number of routes, the second shows the number of individual routes of that colour.
The only double routes that are of one colour are grey. There are 4 double routes of length 1, and 6 of length 2.
Every colour has 7 routes. They have at least one route of every length from 2 to 6.
