Days of Wonder have announced the upcoming release of Ticket to Ride: London, a new, fast-paced version of the iconic Modern Classic title which transports players to the capital of the UK in the 1970s.
In Ticket to Ride: London, players will jump aboard a double-decker bus to rumble through London’s historic streets, breeze past Buckingham Palace, pop into the British Museum or listen to Big Ben’s chime echoing across the Thames.
This new title, in the style of 2018’s successful Ticket to Ride: New York, is an elegantly simple version of Ticket to Ride in which players race around 1970s London to claim the most important bus lines and complete their Destination Tickets. With its quick and compact format, Ticket to Ride: London is fast-paced, easy to learn in just three minutes and extremely portable – perfect for new players and veterans alike.
“Ticket to Ride: London builds on the excitement of Ticket to Ride: New York,” says Alan R. Moon, designer of Ticket to Ride. “It’s slightly bigger but it feels more wide-open, and the new Bonus balances the board and the tickets.
“Ticket to Ride: New York had taxis, so naturally Ticket to Ride: London has double-decker buses. Can you guess what the piece will be in the next city game?”
Ticket to Ride: London is a standalone game for two-to-four players which plays within just 10-15 minutes. It is expected to be available in June in Europe, and in July in North America.
