|My awesome 21 point destination ticket highlighted in red|
Saturday, April 4, 2015
Family Game Night featured Ticket to Ride: Nordic Countries. Once I completed my 6th destination ticket, I was feeling confident that I would win. I quickly finished another 2 routes to trigger the end of the game. I then began counting my bonus points. I had one destination card (for Honningsvag to Kobenhagen) worth a whopping 21 points!
There was only one problem. The end point wasn't Kobenhagen; it was Oslo (the red star on the map). I got it mixed up with another destination ticket I had, and unfortunately I did not have a connection to Oslo. As a result, I lost 21 points, a swing of 42 points! I ended up losing by approximately 10 points. Ooops!
