How much have you played? I agree that someone who gets lucky and gets several long tickets that are all along the same route will have a big advantage. However, other players can disrupt the player by blocking his routes... in which case he loses a lot points. Also - the 1910 expansion has a 'most tickets' complete bonus -which gives a bonus 15 ...

That particular rule isn't particularly balanced, and is included for convenience. However, playing with fewer cards in hand also imbalances the game, as storytellers have fewer cards to choose from to come up with a good hint, and other players have fewer options to play in. Turns as the storyteller aren't the same value as other turns either; the ...
