The Ticket To Ride universe is expanding by 1 more country, this time up we head to the rails in Germany!
Turn of the century Germany… Through a fine autumn rain, a plume of smoke announces the arrival of the 4:15 train from Nuremberg in the Munich Central Station. The din of the massive engine grows more intense, culminating with a prolonged hiss as the locomotive halts at the platform, steam erupting in every direction. Already, porters in livery are rushing to unload baggage as passengers step from their cars. On the opposite platform, an operator pulls the cord for a three-chime whistle and another train begins chugging toward its next destination: Berlin, capital of the German empire…
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 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. 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.
Ticket to Ride: Germany is a complete board game for 2-5 players and features a map of Germany, 225 colored 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 at Gen Con 50 in August, at a suggested retail price of $50.
