Relive the early steps of Train History with Ticket to Ride Map Collection 5 – United Kingdom!

The fifth volume of the Ticket to Ride Map Collection makes its debut in early October at the Essen Game Fair in Germany.

Ticket to Ride United Kingdom features two different maps on a double-sided board.

With the United Kingdom Map designed for 2 to 4 players, players will need to develop their technologies to be able to extend their network over the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland during the 19th century. The double-sided map also features the board of Pennsylvania, a state full of railroad history where 2 to 5 players will invest in railroad companies to achieve victory.


The United Kingdom map comes with a complete new Train cards deck including additional Locomotives, and Technology cards such as the Mechanical Stoker or the Thermocompressor that will allow players to develop their Technology level and build faster trains and claim long routes.

The Pennsylvania map comes with 60 “Stock Shares” cards representing the great railroad companies of Pennsylvania. On this map, claiming a route also allows a player to invest in a company – having a majority of shares in a given company allows to score extra bonus points at game end.

Ticket to Ride United Kingdom includes a double-sided map: the United Kingdom map is designed for 2-4 players and includes 116 new Train cards, 57 UK Destination Tickets, and 47 Technology cards. The Pennsylvania map is designed for 2-5 players and includes 50 Tickets and 60 “Stock Shares” cards. Both of these maps require the trains from either Ticket to Ride® or Ticket to Ride® Europe.

Ticket to Ride United Kingdom makes its debut at the Essen Fair in Germany in October and will be available in game stores in Europe at the end of October. It will be available in the rest of the world early November for a retail price of $40/€35.

    Looks cool. A Thomis the Train edition would sell millions of copys, hint hint.

      Ticket to Ride: Island of Sodor with custom trains…

      But the target audience might be a little too young.

  2. Elymay51 says:

    sounds really interesting. Looking forward to getting this expansion.

  3. brian says:

    Shouldn’t it be Uk & Ireland ?

  4. jonathan says:

    No, the official country name in the 19th century was the United Kingdom of Great Britain & Ireland.

    Ireland split in 1922 as the Irish Free State, now the Republic of Ireland, & Northern Ireland which is still part of the UK.

    The current official name is the United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland.

    So, using the UK is correct.

  5. Sean Coughlan says:

    very jolting to see Ireland here when the game is titled United Kingdom.

  6. Sam says:

    Cool and everything, but how do you not have an official South America, Canada (i realize there is some canadian in the USA version) or Australia yet? Even a middle east one would be awesome (again i realize there is little middle eastern countries in asian version already)
    You guys are milking Europe and USA

    • Ben says:

      I feel like South America is now the biggest pressing need. I’ve also always assumed we would get France at some point…

  7. Steve says:

    For clarity, are the new train cards different from those in USA or Europe? Or can they also be used as replacements for worn decks?

    • Adrien says:

      It could. But I would recommend to use it exclusively for UK, so wear on the cards will be the same (otherwise, you may easily identify some wild cards).

  8. Chris says:

    I’m very excited for this new map. I grew up in Towanda, PA and I can’t believe that little town in the middle of nowhere made the map! Can’t wait!

  9. Pringle says:

    Let me see if I got this right… UK is inside UK, and UK includes UK, which is called UK to distinguish it from UK instead of UK, OK?

  10. Emily says:

    Just tell me when I can preorder and go ahead take my money!

  11. GFresh says:

    I lived in Wilkes-Barre and now live in Lancaster. I just mailed Days of Wonder an envelope full of cash, so I’m hoping they send me the game early.

  12. Gary says:

    Looks good but why is it $40 when all other expansions were $25?
