Days of Wonder announces new Ticket to Ride® 10th Anniversary Edition
Giant version features a newly illustrated, oversized USA board map and new custom train sets stored in special tin train boxes
Los Altos, CA; Paris, France – February 13, 2014. Today, Days of Wonder announced a new version of their award-winning train adventure board game, the Ticket to Ride® 10th Anniversary Edition. First introduced in 2004, Ticket to Ride has delighted board game fans worldwide, selling over 3 Million copies during the past decade.
Celebrating the game's decade of success, the Ticket to Ride 10th Anniversary Edition comes in an oversize game box featuring a new cover design and graphics. It includes a giant US board map, a full 50% larger than the original. Players will still travel the classic US routes, but on a map that features brand new illustrations and design. There are 5 sets of finely sculpted custom plastic trains, each featuring a different type of train car and unique paint scheme reminiscent of toy trains of yesteryear. These are nestled in 5 tin train storage boxes, each with their own custom logo and artwork matching the trains' rail line. Also included are 110 large format Train cards and 69 Destination Tickets – all of the original US map tickets, plus those from the USA 1910 expansion.
"We've designed this 10th Anniversary Edition as an homage to all the Ticket to Ride fans worldwide who've helped the game steam ahead this past decade", said Days of Wonder CEO, Eric Hautemont. "The game play remains faithful to the original classic US map version – but the new design, illustrations, oversized map and especially the new custom trains and tin storage boxes – take the Ticket to Ride experience to a whole new level."
Ticket to Ride 10th Anniversary Edition is designed for 2 to 5 players, ages 8+ and includes a multi-lingual rulebook in 12 languages. It will be available throughout Europe in May and in North America and the rest of the world in June at a retail price of $100/€80.
