It was a long time in coming, but Ticket to Ride fans with Android™ tablets can finally pack their bags for a new train ride…

Ticket to Ride for Android includes:

  • Players on Android can challenge rail barons playing on other platforms including Steam PC and Mac, iPad, and on Days of Wonder’s online portal
  • Contextual in-game Conductor’s Notes to help you master all the maps

Integration with the Android platform is seamless with a quick and easy signup at first launch. Ticket to Ride players on Android will find plenty of online competition as they join the same online player community that hosts tens of thousands of live opponents who are ready to play 24/7.

    Yaaaay! Thank you, DoW!

  2. Kristen J says:


  3. PaulW says:

    I know this is meant for tablets, but why doesn’t this have game invites and turn notifications?

  4. Jonathan R says:

    This does work for some phones, not just tablets. I just played a match on a Note II.

  5. JD says:

    First off, thank you!

    Also, Will it be coming to the amazon app store as well?

  6. LJ Kayz says:

    My only issue is that this doesn’t feature asynchronous multiplayer. It would be really nice to place this in the same style as other mobile games.

    • Jesse says:

      Asynchronous play would be dead boring with this game, which is why they haven’t offered that. Think about how many turns you just have to draw cards…and then you wait a day before your opponent draws two cards…and then you draw two cards…it just wouldn’t work very well.

  7. Mario says:

    How does cross platform play work? Doesn’t iPad use the apple game center thing? I’ve got an N7 and would love to purchase to play with iPad toting friends, but don’t want to get left out with that short return period if something doesn’t work right.

  8. Meredith says:

    I use Steam to play both on Windows and the DoW site, will I be able to use the Steam login in this app? I’m hesitant to cough up $7 without knowing this, but if I can, then I will DEFINITELY cough up $7!

  9. Merete Y says:

    It wouldn’t install on my Nexus 7 . got an error

  10. futurewolfie says:

    Can’t wait til it’s in the Amazon app store, want on my Kindle Fire.

  11. Kyuss says:

    Hooray! Keep bringing board game conversions to the Android!

  12. David says:

    Thanks! Love it. Made my morning. Will make plane trips a lot more enjoyable as well!

  13. Blaine says:

    This is so great! I don’t usually post comments on this type of thing (or anything, for that matter), but I’m a big fan of Days of Wonder games and while I enjoy playing Ticket to Ride and Ticket to Ride Europe on my iPod (4th Gen), I’ve been dying to see it brought to Android. Please consider releasing more of your games to the Android market.

  14. James says:

    Are you going to add a hotseat multiplayer option?

  15. Antonello says:

    This is fantastic news, thanks for considering the Android users, will purchase it and wish you best of success (looking also forward to Small World for Android by end of 2013).

  16. Topher says:

    Someone PLEASE post a how-to on creating games between iOS and Android.

  17. rud says:

    Does it have hot seat multiplayer ?

  18. Töni says:

    Crash mid-game on SGS3. :-\ Finally a reason to buy a new one.

  19. Neil says:

    Much like Blaine I rarely if ever comment on these type of things, but in this case I wanted to say many thanks for finally getting this on Android. It’s the second most expensive app I’ve bought but it’s worth it if it encourages further Android development. Shame map purchases on Steam don’t carry across to Android – let’s hope there’s a sale on sometime 😉
    Works fine on the Nexus 7 and Galaxy S3.

  20. Bianca says:

    I cant fill in my email and password, TTR seems to crash there. Anyone else got this problem, or, even better, a solution? I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab.

  21. Andrew says:

    It works great on my Galaxy Nexus. I was so excited to see this and then disappointed when I thought it wouldn’t work on my phone but it does. Of course the text is a little small since it is intended for a tablet, but that doesn’t bother me.

  22. Peter says:

    But not compatible with my andorid tablet 🙁

  23. Steve says:

    Google Play claims it’s compatible with all my devices, but it doesn’t work on the tablet
    (Toshiba Thrive).

  24. Rich says:

    Another request for hotseat multiplayer, a.k.a Pass & Play. I like the boardgame because I play it with other people, and the digital implementation offers the possibility to play quicker without the setup.

  25. Mike says:

    Adding another iteration of “Thanks for finally acknowledging the non-apple tablet crowd!!”, and “Please please add hotseat Multiplayer / Pass & Play”. That is without question the most frequently used mode on my friends iPads, and being able to play that way would easily justify the additional costs for the additional maps.

  26. Stephen says:

    Love having it on my phone. Been playing it every chance I get. Can’t wait for it to catch up to the iOS version with asynchronous gameplay and push notifications for when it’s my turn. Good work, DoW!

  27. Matt says:

    I’m not very good at this game but I love it anyway. Would love to see asynchronous play so I don’t have to work through a whole game in one sitting!

    • Jesse says:

      Like DoW has said before, Asynchronous play wouldn’t work very well for Ticket to Ride because there are so many little moves. Some games just don’t work for asynch.

  28. Matthew says:

    I’ve played the board game with Stephen above and man is he by far the WORST, however, I’d really like to play some games with him w/o having to sit through an entire game. If you can bring asynchronous play ala the iOS version, that’d be great! Thanks for bringing this to Android DoW!

  29. Matthew's Mom says:


  30. Matthew says:

    There’s that Stephen guy, pretending to be my mother…who’s been in the ground these past 3 years, God rest her soul. What a deuce.

  31. Matthew says:

    Ok so she’s not dead, I was just messing with Stephen. Anyways, again, Ticket to Ride is awesome, can’t wait to play on my phone. Just bought it an hour ago and looking forward to WINNING against Stephen.

  32. Bert says:

    Yes! Can’t wait till it works on my Kindle Fire. I tried side loading, but it freezes instantly.

  33. Scott says:

    I want to thank DoW for giving us Android Tablet users such a great game. In other forums, I supported the DoW view on no android versions due to development cost until I purchased Catan, Carcassonne & Elder Sign for my Nexus 7. My opinion went very negative on DoW since other companies were proving it was worth doing. Please keep up the good work with Android.

  34. Koen says:

    Finally DoW got the mesage…. Android is the platform! Not silly fruits! Works like a charm! Been waiting for this for a loooooong time!!

  35. Tom says:

    Love it but….NEEDS PASS AND PLAY!!!

  36. Dread Pirate Leece says:

    Thank you so much for bringing my favourite game to Android.

    I will specially be upgrading my Android device to be able to run it. (It was getting a little long in the tooth so no worries) Pass and Play would be very good!

    So, how about Pirate’s Cove?

  37. Matt says:

    So I’ve played Ticket to Ride several times on my S3 and I really enjoy it. The only feature, for me, that needs improvement or change is online multiplayer. I don’t like that if I stop playing the game for so much time, a bot replaces me and takes my turns for me. The other party isn’t even notified that it occurs, so they just assume it’s their friend playing still. I understand it’s to prevent people from starting and quitting if they don’t get the routes they want or what not, however, I’d like an option where you can set game time length and play multiple games at once, ala Ascension on iOS.

  38. Lukas says:

    Literally JUST downloaded this to my wife’s iPad and find I could have got itnon my Galaxy Note 10.1 lol! I’ll still be getting it mind you…

    Now how long until we get Smallworld DOW???


  39. Bruce says:

    I love the board game and would love to have it on my tablet, but not without pass and play.
