Near the end of the game I had 3 trains left. Must I draw another route card or may I just draw train cards for my next turn?

Each turn, you have a choice to take tickets, pick up cards, or place trains on the board. Late in the game, it's probably a better idea to try get 4 to 6 cards of the same color to earn extra points.

To get started just give everyone four train cards and three tickets. Each player must keep at least three tickets. use the colored train cards to "buy" the track between two cities. If you play the game differently than the rules, just relax. Most people play games incorrectly without ever knowing that the real rule. I've played the expansion incorrectly for two years before I found out I was only supposed to have one bonus. I still play with both bonuses.

Once you complete 3 destination ticket card routes, do you have to draw more destination cards?

The first time I played this I was just collecting cards and randomly placing trains. I didn't quite get it. But after one complete game it clicked and I'm hooked. There can be so much strategy and I absolutely love this game. Definitely one of those games where the rules confuse you but playing makes it easier to learn.
