Announcing – Ticket to Ride Swiss Map Expansion!

t2r.gifFrom the shores of Lake Geneva to the slopes of Davos, this expansion takes you through the heart of Switzerland’s mountainous geography. You’ll climb aboard the Mont-Blanc Express connecting Martigny to France and ride the Bernina Express over soaring passes into Italy.


Previously only available to Ticket to Ride Computer game players, the Ticket to Ride Swiss Map Expansion is now coming to your board game table!

Designed specifically for 2 or 3 players, this expansion forces you to reconsider all your Ticket to Ride playing strategies. It features Locomotive cards that can only be used on tunnel routes; only 40 trains per player; and new Destination Tickets that take you not just to other cities, but to surrounding countries as well.

The game’s author, Alan R. Moon, has called the Swiss map his “favorite of all the Ticket to Ride maps”. We think you’ll also find this map a great new way to play your favorite train game!

The Swiss expansion contains:

  • A full-size game board
  • 46 Destination Tickets
  • A multi-lingual rules booklet for playing the Swiss map

The Ticket to Ride Swiss Map Expansion is expected to be available in October. MSRP in North America is $25; in Europe €20.

    Will it also work with TTR: Marklin?

  2. Pierre says:

    No, the card distribution in the Marklin game is not exactly the same. There are 11 cards per color only, as we have 12 per color in the USA/Europe version.

  3. Excellent. I’m really looking forward to this 2-player version. Good job DoW!

  4. Walter says:

    How will the “tunnel” cards from the computer game be reproduced? Will locomotive cards serve that purpose, with the restriction that they are not true wild cards?

  5. Mark says:

    Walter,

    The locomotives from your Ticket to Ride or Ticket to Ride card deck serve as the “tunnel” cards.

    Sweet! I’ve been hoping they’d do this. Perfect for our play group as we almost never have more than 3 players. And I really, really like the Swiss game. Thank You, DOW!

    Having lived, worked and taken trains for many years in Switzerland, I am delighted to see this addition to Ticket to Ride… Switzerland is the land of railways and its geography makes rail travel diverse and diverting!!!
