Asmodee GmbH, Days of Wonder’s German distributor, announced Zug um Zug Deutschland (Ticket to Ride Germany) at the Nuremberg Toy Fair this week.
A complete, stand-alone game, Zug um Zug Deutschland is an adaptation of the same map and routes first introduced in Ticket to Ride Märklin, with a thematic change, the map now being set in turn-of-the-20th-century Germany. The game rules do not include the Merchandise and Passengers mechanisms present in Märklin.
Zug um Zug Deutschland was developed and produced specifically at Asmodee GmBH’s request for distribution in the mass market; this game will only be available in Germany and Austria. It is expected to ship during the second half of 2012 with pricing and specific availability dates to be announced later by Asmodee GmBH.
Ticket to Ride Märklin will continue to be available worldwide in English, French and German language editions.
