Here comes Ticket to Ride – The Dice Expansion – a fast and fun new way to enjoy the world’s best-selling train game that can be played with all Ticket to Ride board maps.
In this expansion, players still attempt to complete their Destination Tickets and claim routes and block each other on the map. But rather than draw and collect Train cards, they roll five custom Train dice each turn. Depending on the outcome they can reroll some or all, then use the dice to claim routes on the board; grab Route Tokens for future use; or draw more Destination Tickets. For board maps that feature Tunnel routes, such as Ticket to Ride Europe, 3 Tunnel dice are also included.
Ticket to Ride – The Dice Expansion includes: 5 custom Train dice, 3 Tunnel dice, 1 Ticket to Ride dice cup, Route tokens and Rules booklet and comes in a small cube shaped box.
It requires trains, Destination Tickets and a board map from any of the Ticket to Ride series.
The Dice Game Expansion is multi-lingual with rules in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Finnish, Danish, Swedish and Norwegian.
It will be available in October 2008 in both the US and Europe and will debut at the Essen Trade Fair in Germany. You can preorder your copy now from the Days of Wonder Web Store.
