#8: Ticket to Ride
Pat Korner: "The new champion of 'gateway' games, stealing the crown away from the now-long-in-the-tooth Settlers of Catan. Excellent mix of luck and planning, with enough decision-making and interaction thrown into the mix to keep things from becoming a redundant 'draw a card until you can play cards'."
Andrea Meyer: "Gorgeous design integrating elements of traditional card games with the train theme. Easily explained, fun playinig with any number of players indicated. I wish I had designed this."
Greg Daigle: "I've played this mostly as a two-player game. TtR gets a lot of mileage out of so few mechanisms. It's about as elegant as they come."
