I love board games and played Ticket to Ride a lot irl. Never played the children version of the game, so this was my first experience with the “First Journey”serie. This game is fun, and has less grindy achievements than it’s big brother (looking at the 20k plays achievement). Some people report problems with the sticker achievements, but I didn’t have any problems at all, I was logged in to my Asmodee account, which should help with that problem. You get a sticker no matter if you win or lose. The problem that I had with this game was that it is not made for wide computer screens, and that the resolution looks horrible. After a while I got more used to it, but it bothered me till the end.
