TtR 10th Anniv - Missing Rules Mon, 30 June 2014 06:57
It has been widely reported that the TtR 10th Anniversary Edition includes the cards for the 1910 and Mystery Train expansions, but the rules that come with the $100 game make no reference to those expansions at all. What I have not seen, however, is any official comment from DoW on this issue. (I apologize if I have missed it somewhere.) Can we get some kind of explanation why this happened and if there are any plans to remedy this in future printings (if such will be happening)?

Edit: It looks like only half of the Mystery Train expansion cards (the extra routes) are included. Supplemental question: why wasn't the entire expansion included?

During development of the game, our expectation was that that nearly all of the purchasers would already be experienced Ticket to Ride owners and would most likely already be familiar with the core rules and the 1910 rules. Also, we did not have officially translated versions of the 1910 rules for all the languages included in the 10th Anniversary Edition rules. In particular we knew that translating the Japanese rules would cause a significant delay in getting the game to press and to market.

Our assumptions about the first point were clearly wrong - many people did want, and do need, the 1910 rules as this may be their first version of the game and/or they are unfamiliar with the 1910 rules. And because we were wrong about this, it makes our decision to move ahead to get the game into print without them, short-sighted.

Only the destination cards for Mystery Train were included because we wanted to include all routes that we'd published. There are actually physical limitations in printing card decks and the deck sizes are fixed at specific numbers, so we could not include the other non-destination cards from Mystery Train.

So how will we solve the problem? We'll start work on a separate printed piece that will contain the 1910 rules variants and make it clear how to play the different versions of the game when playing the 10th Anniversary Edition. We'll make this available for free from the Days of Wonder web store or to pick up at trade shows and events that we're at. I don't know when they will be available yet. We'll post online when we know. I can tell you that they won't make it into the second print run of the game as that is already being assembled, but we'll try to make this right as quickly as we can.

In the meantime you can find the Ticket to Ride 1910 rules online here:

Thanks for your reply!

Just counted the cards in my 10th Anniversary set, comparing them to the description of the cards in the instructions you linked to for the USA 1910 Expansion Set. I found that my collection includes the 30 "standard" destination cards, 35 "1910" destination cards, and 4 "Mystery Train" destination cards.

Do I have all of the "Mystery Train" cards, or only half of them as the original poster suggested? Your reply that "[only] the destination cards for Mystery Train were included" made me think that my 10th Anniversary Set might be missing some of the cards that it should have...

Where might the official instructions for "Mystery Train" be found?

Will you please reply to this thread when the revised "separate printed piece" you described is available to owners of the first print run of the 10th Anniversary set is available?

We are a family that had never played the game before, so dove in to the 10th Anniversary Set to get the all-inclusive best version of the game. We are loving it, and would like to try the variants as well!

Thank you!

There is no need for Mystery Train rules. The Anniversary Edition does not use them in any fashion. It simply includes the destination cards from Mystery Train as a bonus.

You have all the proper cards. Any comments of missing Mystery Train cards is in regard to the non-destination cards originally included with Mystery Train. If I recall correctly, there were nine cards total in Mystery Train. We only get four of them.

There were a total of 12 Mystery Train cards (the 4 destination tickets, 2 rules, 5 characters, and one blank character). If you really want to know which Mystery Train character cards were "missing" go to: Mystery Train question and Mystery Train Characters, etc.

Also, if you really want the rules for the Characters they can be found at: Mystery Train Rules.

Frankly, I'm glad that they "omitted" them from both 1910 and the 10th Anniversary editions; I have a set of the characters, never used them and won't.
