Today, Days of Wonder announced Ticket to Ride: Germany, a new stand-alone board game in its well-known Ticket to Ride series.
As in the other Ticket to Ride board games, players will build their own rail network, this time across a new beautifully illustrated board of Germany at end of the 19th century, to connect cities listed on their Destination Tickets. But that’s not all. Competitors need to watch out for their opponents who might be trying to reach the same far-flung corners of the German empire and outwit them by collecting valuable Passenger Meeples from the cities faster than they can.
Using the route network previously seen in the Märklin Edition, Ticket to Ride Germany introduces a new and exclusive passengers rule. Additionally, the game includes short and long Destination Tickets to choose from, making Ticket to Ride: Germany a simple and elegant variant to the original game, with new challenges which will please newcomers and veterans alike.
“We decided to release this version, which was limited to the German market only, in order to answer the demand of all Ticket to Ride fans worldwide” says Adrien Martinot, General Manager at Days of Wonder. “We are delighted that we were able to include the new passenger variant which adds a new and exciting twist.”
Ticket to Ride: Germany is a complete board game for 2-5 players and features a map of Germany, 225 coloured Train Cars, 110 Train Car Cards, 89 Destination Tickets Cards, 60 Passenger Meeples, 1 Cloth Bag, 5 Scoring Markers, 1 Rules Booklet and a special Globetrotter Bonus Card. It is expected to be available in June in Europe and at the Gen Con in August for the US, at a suggested retail price of £38.99.
