Ticket to Ride Germany is a stand-alone game in the Ticket to Ride series. Over the course of the game, players collect cards in order to then claim routes on the game board between two cities. There are also passengers, positioned in cities before the start of the game.
Ideally the players create a network of routes that connect the cities shown on their secret ticket cards, trying to also collect as many passengers as possible. Players score points for claiming routes and for completing tickets, with incomplete tickets counting against a player's score and for having the most passengers in given colour. Whoever has the most points at the end of the game wins.
