Xbox LIVE Achievements
Latest update by CMBF
on Mar 13th 2013
There are a total of 15 achievements worth 250 Gamer Points (GP) spread among the base game and its two expansions for the Xbox LIVE Arcade platform.
The following constitutes the Regular Achievements in the game, all of which are visible from the Achievements Listing on your Xbox. Bear in mind though that unless you purchased the two expansions to the base game, Ticket to Ride: 1910 USA and Ticket to Ride: Europe, you will not be able to unlock all of the Achievements listed below.
All Aboard! (10 GP)
Requirements: Finish a match in which you have completed all of your Destination Tickets.
This should unlock naturally and not require you to try to unlock it, as all that it requires is for you to complete all of your Destination Tickets in a game.
Au Naturel (15 GP)
Requirements: Win a Ticket to Ride: Europe match without playing any Stations.
This Achievement requires the Ticket to Ride: Europe Expansion. To unlock this Achievement you need to win a game on the Europe Map without using any Train Station moves. Train Station moves are when you co-opt a station that belongs to an opponent in order to get your own trains through that route. In other words instead of playing through, you need to go around.
Basic Training (5 GP)
Requirements: Complete the Tutorial.
The first time that you play the game in local mode you will be presented with the option of playing the Tutorial, which you will want to do whether you are familiar with the board game or not since the computer version is a bit different. Well, that and you have to play through the Tutorial in order to unlock this Achievement!
The Big Score (30 GP)
Requirements: Score at least 150 points in a single match.
Bearing in mind that each Route Card you draw is worth a set number of points, and the cumulative total of the train cards you play (the colored routes you place on the board) also give you a set score depending upon their length, all that you need to do is make sure that the total added up between your connected Routes and your Train Cards equals more than 150 points in order to unlock this Achievement.
Canadian Content (25 GP)
Requirements: In a Xbox LIVE match, connect all Canadian cities and win.
This Achievement is unlocked form the North American Map on the base game. It requires that you connect all six Canadian Cities together in order to unlock it. FYI those cities are, from East to West, Montreal, Toronto, Sault St. Marie, Winnipeg, Calgary, and Vancouver.
European Track Star (15 GP)
Requirements: Complete each of the 6 European Destination Tickets worth 20 or more points.
This Achievement requires the Ticket to Ride: Europe Expansion. To unlock it all that you need to do is have completed each of the 6 European Destinations that are worth 20 or more points. These are:
Note that you do NOT have to do all six cards in the same game, you just have to eventually do all 6 throughout all of the games you play in the European Expansion. You will find that there is usually only one long route card per game, and it appears in the initial draw, so if you already have the long route that the game starts with completed (and you are not playing multi-player) you are best off quitting and starting again until you get a long route you have not completed.
Once you have completed all six routes, the Achievement is yours.
- Brest to St. Petersberg (Petrograd) - 20 Points.
- Cadiz to Stockholm - 21 Points.
- Copenhagen (Kobenhavn) to Erzurum - 21 Points.
- Edinburgh to Athens (Athina) - 21 Points.
- Lisbon (Lisboa) to Danzig - 20 Points.
- Palermo to Moscow (Moskva) - 20 Points.
I Think I Can! (30 GP)
Requirements: Win 25 Ranked matches.
This will come naturally as you play as long as you are playing mostly Ranked Matches that is. All that you need to do is win a total of 25 Ranked Matches, and it will unlock.
Loco Motive (30 GP)
Requirements: Complete 8 or more Destination Tickets during a single match.
This can be a tough one if you are trying to complete long routes, but if you stick to short routes you can easily complete 8 or more Destination Tickets in a game, which will then unlock this Achievement.
The Long Haul (10 GP)
Requirements: Attain the Longest Continuous Route bonus card 5 times.
There are a number of bonus cards awarded at the end of each game, and among them is the Longest Route Card. To obtain this you simply need to have the longest route at the end of the game. You can easily accomplish this by making sure that your chosen routes do not branch, but rather present one continuous route line. Once you have done this five times (in five different games) this Achievement will unlock.
Master Conductor (25 GP)
Requirements: Complete 50 matches.
To unlock this Achievement you need to only have played through to the end a total of 50 matches. You do not need to have won them, and they can be single player, multi-player, Ranked, or any combination of the three.
No Train, No Gain (10 GP)
Requirements: Win 1 Ranked match.
Ranked Matches are games played by the player via the Ranked Match selection, which requires an Xbox LIVE Gold Membership as you are playing against other human opponents online as opposed to the computer controlled ones in the single player game. To unlock this Achievement all that you need to do is begin a Ranked Match and then win it by scoring the most points.
One Track Mind (5 GP)
Requirements: Make sure all of your Routes are connected by the end of the match.
To unlock this Achievement all that you need to do is be sure that each of the routes from your Route Cards are connected before the end of the game. This should come naturally as you play and is not an Achievement that you should need to work towards.
The Ticket Master (20 GP)
Requirements: Keep all 5 Destination Tickets at the beginning of a 1910 Mega Game and win.
This Achievement requires the Ticket to Ride: 1910 USA Expansion. To unlock it all that you need do is simply keep ALL of the five Destination Tickets you draw at the beginning of the game, and win the game.
Train Drain (10 GP)
Requirements: Play all of your Trains during the match.
Unlocking this Achievement simply requires that you have played every train you are allotted in the game, which is 45 total train placements. If you look at the game play window you will note that among the statistics that are constantly updated in your player block, the top number at the start of the game is 45 - that is your train count. The middle number is the Route Cards you have taken, and the bottom number is the number of cards you have in your hand. All that you need to do is reduce the top number to Zero by the end of the game to unlock this Achievement.
The following Achievement is a Secret Achievement, which means ordinarily you do not see it or its description until you have unlocked it in the game. While this Achievement does not contain any spoiler information, you should be aware that reading the details for Secret Achievements often does contain spoiler material. Just saying.
Underachiever (10 GP)
Requirements: You played 10 games without earning any other achievements.
This will unlock on its own once you have unlocked most of the other Achievements, since it only requires that you complete a game (not win it) x10 without unlocking another Achievement.
