You must go outside Central Station (click on the doorway) and back onto the Quay where you saw the Conductor when you first launched the game.

Then take the Ticket in the Conductor's hand, and a "drawer" will open that lets you select the map you want to play, whether you want the tutorial or not, the number of players for SOLO games, etc...

Look at the top of the drawer, where it says "Scroll to your Map of Choice". Place your finger of the box of Ticket to Ride USA and flip/scroll it right or left to display the game box (and map) of T2R Europe, Swiss or 1910.

You will be automatically presented with a Buy button for each expansion.

Hope this helps,
eric

Great explanation.. the funny thing is that I think Days of Wonder are losing potential money by making it so tricky to find the in app purchase options. Most people probably assume that you can only see the regular board game and don't even think to move the slider to look for the other game types. Why wouldn't they just make an icon on the main screen to buy the additional board games?

I have the same problem. Clicking the BUY button on any of the expansion maps just makes the icon light up, then nothing else happens. It just returns to show the BUY button again. This is frustrating as I don't want to play without the 1910 pack.

**Edit** I found the answer in another thread. I should have remembered I'd changed the setting so in-app purchases weren't allowed. If you still can't buy the maps, try disabling that in settings, it worked for me.

As mdavis200 mentioned, you need to go back to your home screen to access your iPad's general settings and enable in-app purchases. If they are disabled (which they are for you), the buttons do nothing.
