One of my absolute favourite board games is Ticket to Ride. Lucky for me it's also avaliable on iPad, so I can play with my friends online as well. Love it. The photograph from this page is taken from a REAL board game, though, when we played on New Year's. I'm glad my near and dear like to play it as well!
