Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

Ticket to Ride Asia – the first volume in the Ticket to Ride Map Collection – goes on sale tomorrow (Wednesday, Nov 16) in retail stores throughout North America.

This expansion to the popular Ticket to Ride series features two different maps on a double-sided board. In Team Asia, 4 or 6 players collaborate in two-player teams to complete shared Destination Tickets. On the flip side,  Legendary Asia features a new Asian Explorer bonus for connecting the most cities and takes 2-5 players through hazardous Mountain Routes that force you to discard a train (the Himalayas are hard on rail cars!) You’ll need trains and train cards from either Ticket to Ride or Ticket to Ride Europe to play.

Make some time to visit your friendly local game store this week and pick up Ticket to Ride Asia. If you’ve pre-ordered from the Days of Wonder web store your shipment will also leave the station by tomorrow. Learn more on the Ticket to Ride Asia web page.
