DLCs missing? What happened and how we fixed it

Thursday, November 5th, 2020

Hello everyone!

Many people lost access to one or several DLCs after the 2.7.10 update, for the reason we will explain below.

This only affected players that bought the game or one of the DLCs on the following platforms: the Apple AppStore, the Apple Mac AppStore, the Google Play Store and the Steam Store.

First, let us point out that, if it’s not done already, you simply need to relaunch your app or game (close it and restart it) to be restored access to these maps, as we fixed this issue.
If not (you never know, there are always some rebellious accounts), please contact us here and we will do the necessary: https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/ticket-to-ride/?contact=1

Now, let us explain what happened: some months ago, many of you reported a bug where when you bought one or several maps, you received one or several of the reported missing maps (Europe, USA 1910, Legendary Asia, India, Switzerland and Nordic Countries) for free.

Please note that having achievements on these maps doesn’t prove that you ever purchased them, it simply proves you got access to it- which is precisely what the bug did.
Additionally, it seems important to us to precise, because of many confusions, that the “Europe” map only contains one map, the Europe one, and isn’t a bundle of maps.
It goes the same way with the base game “Ticket to Ride” which only contains the basic USA map (not USA Mega / USA 1910) and is not a bundle either.
Finally, please know that your purchase history cannot be tampered with by us or anyone else, and thus if the maps you were missing don’t appear, it shows that you indeed did not purchase them and benefitted from this bug I explained above.

We have been working on this for the past few months and the last update, version 2.7.10, did fix, among other issues, this particular one- that is why you temporarily lost access to these maps.

However, as previously stated, we decided to give back all the missing maps to everyone who got affected by it as this was solely our mistake in the first place.
We successfully wrote and deployed a script which did that and that is why you now simply need to restart your game to find these maps back.

We thank you very much for your patience and understanding,

We hope you will have fun playing on these maps again!

Days of Wonder Debuts Alexa Skills for Ticket to Ride!

Thursday, November 14th, 2019

Amazon and Days of Wonder are changing how players experience board games by introducing the first official Alexa skills for Ticket to Ride and Ticket to Ride Europe for free to welcome new players aboard the award-winning games by Alan R. Moon and act as conductors for even the most experienced rail-riders.

These skills replace the rule books by taking players on a guided experience of the games and offer the option to use it as an additional player. We are excited to announce that both official skills are available now in English and French languages in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and France.

After saying, “Alexa, launch Ticket to Ride” or “Alexa, launch Ticket to Ride Europe,” players are taken on a guided journey from setup to the end of the game for either game. No matter the player’s experience level, the skills offer new ways to play and learn. For those new to the game, they offer full rules walkthroughs during play sessions. Veteran players can skip the walkthroughs and use other helpful tools that are part of the experience.

The skills customize themselves to the number of players and track their remaining trains, the longest route, points, and more. They also act as an additional player for groups looking for an extra person or anyone who wants to get in a solo game against the skill itself. While each player takes their turn, the skills provide thematic background music and sound effects to immerse everyone in the world of Ticket to Ride.

Discover the skills:

US: Ticket to Ride / Ticket to Ride Europe

UK: Ticket to Ride / Ticket to Ride Europe

CA: Ticket to Ride / Ticket to Ride Europe

We are eager for players to experience the free Ticket to Ride and Ticket to Ride Europe skills for themselves. Additional languages and territories will be supported soon to ensure players around the world can learn and play Ticket to Ride and Ticket to Ride Europe like never before.

Zoom across Japan in a bullet train admiring Mount Fuji through the mist or take the Tokyo subway to your final destination.

On the other hand, the players who contribute most to this shared project will also be rewarded with a larger bonus. Italy, the second map featured in this expansion,  is focused on the Regions in this country and on a brand new type of Ferry Route. Connect cities from all Regions in the same network to score extra points.

This expansion is designed for 2-5 players and includes 1 oversized double-sided board. The Japan map contains 16 Bullet Train miniatures and associated Progression Markers, 54 Destination Ticket cards and 1 Rules booklet. The Italy map includes 56 Destination Tickets cards, 10 Ferry cards and 1 Rules booklet. Both of these maps require the trains and the train car cards from either Ticket to Ride® or Ticket to Ride®Europe. The game is expected to be available at Spiel ‘19 in Essen, Germany, in November in Europe and in January in North America at a suggested retail price of $40/40€.
