We dive right in with Ticket To Ride, which actually was as our gateway game that’s led to so many fun gaming sessions. It’s a go-to for us–especially if we want to pull something out that will be fun for someone who isn’t sure what they think about tabletop games. Jess and I pulled our copy off of the game shelf, played a round (which I lost miserably), then talked about why this game is most definitely a gateway into the hobby. Hint: it’s just about as easy to learn as Go Fish…but compelling enough to keep your attention.
