Days of Wonder announces new Ticket to Ride Map Collection 4 – Nederland Map Expansion
Introduces new Bridge Toll Tokens
Los Altos, CA; Paris, France – September 17, 2013. Today, Days of Wonder announces the newest addition to the world's most popular train game family – Ticket to Ride Map Collection 4 – Nederland. The fourth in the series of Ticket to Ride Map Collection expansions is set in the Netherlands low-country – a region filled with hundreds of canals and rivers, and just as many bridges that cross them.
Along with the new map, this expansion introduces bridge tolls. Double-routes now have a cost, which players must pay for with Bridge Toll Tokens. When taking the first route of a Double-route the player pays tokens directly to the bank; but when a second route is claimed, the tokens due are paid to the player who claimed the first route instead. Players score bonus points based on the total value of Bridge Toll Tokens they still own at game's end.
"The Bridge Tokens make Ticket to Ride Nederland really tense right from the start. You need to build routes early, not only to make sure you get the ones you need, but also to have a chance at getting tokens from another player who'll want to build the same route later," said Eric Hautemont, Days of Wonder CEO. "This makes the map a favorite of mine, especially with 4 or 5 players."
Ticket to Ride Nederland includes a single-sided map; 44 Destination Tickets; new Bridge Toll Tokens and multi-lingual rules booklet. Designed for 2 to 5 players, ages 8+, this expansion requires train cards and trains from either Ticket to Ride® or Ticket to Ride® Europe.
Ticket to Ride Nederland makes its debut at the Essen Fair in Germany in October and will be available in game stores in Europe at the same time. It will be available in the rest of the world in November for a retail price of $25/€25. For more information visit the website at www.daysofwonder.com/tickettoride/maps/nederland
