2014 marks the 10th anniversary of the original release of Ticket to Ride. To celebrate, Days of Wonder is hosting a year long series of tournaments to determine the top players in the world and crown a new Ticket to Ride World Champion!
Until earlier this year, Regional tournaments have been held throughout the world to determine qualifiers to play in National Championship events. All National Champions are now known and will meet in Paris on September 27th for the Ticket to Ride World Championship and a chance to win the Grand Prize – an unforgettable trip for two to Asia on Eastern & Oriental Express.
The player who is crowned World Champion in Paris will win a magnificent Grand Prize – a 9 days/8 nights trip for two to Asia, including 3 nights aboard the Luxurious Eastern & Oriental Express.
From the excitement of Bangkok to the elegance of Singapore, this trip will be an unforgettable journey through the heart of South-East Asia with visits to colonial Georgetown, Fort Cornwallis and the infamous River Kwai. (see Official Rules and Prize list for additional information).
On Saturday September 27th, the Musée de la Carte à Jouer (Card Game Museum) at Issy-les-Moulineaux, will host the 2nd Ticket to Ride World Championship.
