Ticket to Ride is great fun. I've played it with 3 players and it's not a perfect number, but it plays just fine.
For my money, the best 3 player games are 7 Wonders and Smallword. Although again, for my money, for 3 players you are better off going the Co-op route (assuming 3 relatively strong players so you don't end up with a quarterback and no other players).
Mage Knight, Legendary Encounters, Forbidden Desert/Island are all awesome for 3 players.
I've got the Scandinavian version of Ticket to Ride very high on my wishlist. :)
I came within a gnat's whisker of chucking in my degree a week before my final semester started. The only reason I didn't was because I friend literally pulled the plug on the computer and then got me drunk. By the time I sobered up and finished sobbing, I realized how dumb I was being.
It was the toughest semester I ever did, but I got through it with a degree. Sometimes you just have to tell yourself to balls up and just get it done.
Ukraine won over favourites Russia (who came 3rd).
Okay, so I'll admit I'm a Eurovision junkie. I watch it every year for the hilarity and politics. And the drinking. SOOOOO MUCHHH drinking! :)
Anyway, this year Australia was entered and actually had the best song IMHO. The song that won.... well it frankly sucked. The Russian song was actually really really good and probably should have taken the night (other than us :P).
But euro-politics is a funny game and Europe is very, very pissed at the mighty Russia. And this was reflected in the judges voting.
