A New Train Adventure Begins!
Ticket to Ride – The Card Game is a stand-alone card game which delivers the same exciting, fun and easy-to-learn elements of the original Ticket to Ride board game, but with several new game-play twists in a portable format.
In the Ticket to Ride Card Game players work to collect sets of illustrated Train cards. These cards are then used to complete Destination Tickets – routes between two cities depicted on each ticket. But before their Train cards can be used, players face the risk of “train-robbing”, where another player may force them to lose their hard-earned cards.
“I wanted to make sure that players of the Ticket to Ride Card Game would recognize the family resemblance to the board game, but also get to enjoy new and distinctive game play.” says the game’s author Alan R. Moon. “It has the familiar simplicity of the original game – drawing cards, playing cards, drawing tickets – but the game play itself is fresh and new.”
The Ticket to Ride Card Game is for 2-4 players ages 8 and older. It includes 96 train cards, 6 Big Cities Bonus cards, 46 Destination Tickets and a rules booklet. Playing time is approximately 30 minutes. The game will be available in 10 languages – English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish and Finnish – in May from game retailers and the Days of Wonder web site. Suggested retail price is $25 in the US and €15 in Europe.
Update : The rules are available! You can download them from the Game page on our website.
