From the craggy hillsides of Edinburgh to the sunlit docks of Constantinople, from the dusty alleys of Pamplona to a windswept station in Berlin, Ticket to Ride Europe takes you on an exciting train adventure through the great cities of turn-of-the-century Europe.
The second installment in our best-selling Ticket to Ride series of train adventures, Ticket to Ride Europe takes you into the heart of Europe. In addition to the new board map, Ticket to Ride Europe offers you brand new game play elements including Tunnels, Ferries and Train Stations. We’ve also upgraded you to First-Class accommodations with larger cards, new Train Station game pieces, and a lavishly illustrated game board.
Like the Spiel des Jahres winning original, the game remains elegantly simple, and easy to learn. Ticket to Ride Europe is a complete, new game that does not require the original version and is guaranteed to offer you hours of enjoyment.

When it was obvious Ticket to Ride was doing well, it seemed a natural progression to design a European map.
As with all subsequent expansions, I wanted this map to have some changes that would make it seem slightly different from the USA map, while retaining the same basic game play and being just as easy for new players to learn. The additions of the tunnels and ferries add some more luck to the game but don’t really change the basic strategies. The biggest difference is there are many more small routes and no obvious network choice like the coast to coast strategy in the USA.
Upgrade your ticket with exciting new routes to the great rail destinations of Europe and add fresh new gameplay to all versions of Ticket to Ride with Warehouses and Depots!
The Ticket to Ride Europa 1912 expansion for the Ticket to Ride series includes 101 Destination Tickets – the 46 original tickets, plus 55 new ones that enable 3 new variants to the Ticket to Ride Europe map: Europe Expanded, which adds 19 new routes to the original 46; Big Cities of Europe, with tickets to 9 major European cities; and Mega Europe, which uses all the new routes as well as the 46 original Destination Tickets.
This expansion also introduces Warehouses & Depots – new game rules and pieces that create an additional strategic layer and can be played with any of the Ticket to Ride maps. Wooden Train Depots are placed on cities selected by each player. Throughout the game, each player’s Warehouse will accumulate Train cards and those who have the foresight, clever timing, or just plain good fortune to build a route to a Depot can make off with a fistful of Train cards. Depot placement and skillful Warehouse tactics become a key part of a winning Ticket to Ride strategy!
Europa 1912 is not a stand-alone game. An original copy of any complete game in the Ticket to Ride series is required to play with Warehouses & Depots. New Destination Tickets are for use only with Ticket to Ride Europe.
Ticket to Ride Europe adds a new layer of decision-making to the basic formula, making this sequel fresh, new and even more attractive to the gamers in the crowd. Even owners of the original Ticket to Ride will find the original touches in Ticket to Ride Europe just the thing to make this train ride first class.

The new [Ticket to Ride Europe] actually puts a bit more emphasis on strategic and planned gameplay than its predecessor, but this by no means makes the game less attractive. Quite the opposite, I would say that Alan R. Moon succeeded in making a good game better, and thus I can recommend the game without any reservations…
