The world is changing fast. All over the world, railroad tracks bridge countries and continents, and journeys that would take weeks can now be completed in a matter of days. Seas are no longer obstacles: huge steamers carrying hundreds of passengers sail across the oceans. From Los Angeles to Sydney, from Murmansk to Dar Es Salaam, Ticket to Ride – Rails & Sails takes you on a railroad adventure across the entire globe. All aboard, and get ready for an unforgettable journey!
Ticket to Ride – Rails & Sails is the new installment in Alan R. Moon’s best-selling train adventure series. Players collect cards of various types (trains and ships) that enable them to claim railway and sea routes on a nicely illustrated double-sided board, featuring the world map on one side and the great lakes of North America on the other. Elegantly simple and fast to learn, it takes the Ticket to Ride series to the next level! Veteran railroaders as well as family and friends will be delighted to set sail to the new horizons of Ticket to Ride…
The game just premiered at GenCon in Indianapolis and the first reviews in the press are highly positive and enthusiastic:
“I love this version of Ticket to Ride. It is more strategic than most other maps, and it is a version of Ticket to Ride that gamers would appreciate for its depth. […] The game is still easy to learn, but this offers a bit more of a challenge than past games in the Ticket to Ride line.”
