Holiday Break Gaming Begins

Lissa and I played two more games of Carcassonne on the 19th and are now pretty decent with the Inns and Cathedrals expansion.  I would love to have input on what expansion to add next (Traders & Builders or what).

Yesterday we received one part of our Christmas gift to ourselves, a copy of Ticket to Ride: Europe (Board Games with Scott Episode).  Ticket to Ride is a beautiful game where you collect colored train cards in order to play routes on the map as you attempt to complete various tickets showing routes between European cities.  The turn sequence is simple by Euro-game standards.  Each turn you do one of the following: take up to two train cards, play a route, play a station allowing you to use one section of an opponent's track to fulfill a ticket, or draw additional route tickets.

Lissa and I both enjoyed the first game we played and today I introduced Jeff to the game.  Jeff and I also played two games of Carcassonne.
