Back in October, we posted a photo of our guest bathroom wall, where we had been keeping track of the "Steve vs. Amy" Ticket to Ride scores. Since that time, we've added another column and here are the results:

Round 2: Steve vs. Amy Game Results

Round 2: Steve vs. Amy Game Results

In Round 2 of our matchups, we tied in wins with 8 games each.  You'll note that our more recent games have included the awesome new Alvin & Dexter Monster Expansion, which really adds so much more fun to any Ticket to Ride game.

On the wall you'll also note our "W+D" references, which represent the "Warehouses and Depots" game elements that are part of the Europa 1912 Expansion (and like Alvin & Dexter, can be added to any version of Ticket to Ride).  This expansion also includes new Destination Tickets much like the USA 1910 Expansion for the original game, except that Ticket to Ride Europe is now the benefactor, providing 3 different expansion games to play (Europe Expanded, Mega Europe, and Big Cities of Europe).

Providing a fun break from regular TtR games, our friend Jason Steele gave us a fan-made map of the London Underground which really was quite different.  We haven't released the monsters on this city yet, so apparently the folks on London are safe for a little while longer!

I'd also like to point your attention to a fan-created set of rules called the Ghost Train, which actually did a very nice job of tightening up the USA map for a 2-player game.  Such a simple concept, but it added a lot more cutthroat action in a recent game.

Finally, I'm particularly proud of the Nordic game we played where I won with the really low score of 71-57.  This game almost had me sleeping on the couch because I ended up defeating Amy in under 20 minutes using a strategy I read about online.  She was NOT happy about that technique.  Needless to say, I haven't used that strategy since then. :)

Who's ready for Round 3?
