New expansion explores the heart of the continent with new Terrain cards that can double the value of your train routes.
Days of Wonder announces the upcoming release of the 3rd volume in the Ticket to Ride Map Collection – The Heart of Africa. Set in the vast wilderness of Africa at the height of its exploration by intrepid explorers, missionaries and adventurers, this new single-sided board map focuses on the central and southern “heart” of the continent displayed in a vertical map format.
This new map expansion also introduces 45 new Terrain Cards, divided into 3 different Terrain Types. Each Terrain Type is associated with different Route colors: Desert/Savanna cards for Yellow, Orange and Red Routes; Jungle/Forest cards for Green, Blue and Purple Routes; and Mountain/Cliff cards for Black, White and Grey Routes. Players can draw Terrain cards just like Train cards and may use these to double the value of the routes they claim, under certain conditions.
Ticket to Ride Map Collection 3 – The Heart of Africa includes 48 Destination Tickets, new Terrain Cards and multi-lingual Rules booklet. Designed for 2-5 players, ages 8+, this expansion takes 30-60 minutes and is played using Train cards and Trains from either Ticket to Ride or Ticket to Ride Europe. It is expected to be available worldwide in early December at a retail price of $25/€25.
