A utility for quickly counting up your train scores in the board game 'Ticket to Ride'.
If you play the game like we do, then you're probably used to tallying up everyone's trains at the end of the game to get the final score. This app allows you to do that super-fast, and error-free.
Includes a validation check that allows you to avoid re-counts (by comparing the train cars counted, to those used), and distinct audible sounds for each button making it simple for the person doing the counting — and those around them — to validate the input as it's happening. Together these features mean you'll never have to do a re-count.
How to use the validation check (completely optional): once you're done counting, the app tells you the total number of train cars used in addition to your score (e.g. 44 cars). On the standard board each person has 48 cars. Simply deduct the number counted (in this example, 44), from the starting number (i.e. 48), and compare the result with how many cars you didn't use (so in this example, there should be 4 unused car). If the number doesn't match, you need to count it up again (or, your set is missing a piece!).
Please Note: neither the app Train Counter, nor the publisher is affiliated with Days of Wonder or Ticket to Ride in any way. This is just an app made by one fan, to help all the other fans out there.
iOS 11 support.
Ratings and Reviews
What a great idea! I just played my first game of Ticket to Ride last night and we slowly but surely counted each car. This would have saved a lot of time! Will definitely use this the next time we play. Thank you very much. The presentation looks very nice and the sound adds a great touch.
Great idea for an app. Works well, but I wish there was a way to prevent your screen from turning off (like on the munchkin counter app) due to idle time. By the time it's your turn again, your phone is off. Having a setting for this would be nice for people that like it the way it is and want to save battery power.
Must you count at the end?
There needs to be a way to keep track of multiple peoples scores at the same time so you can count as your playing witch would help you know who is ahead and how many points to risk going for.
