Ticket to Ride Germany Game Box

Germany

Turn of the century Germany... Through a fine autumn rain, a plume of smoke announces the arrival of the 4:15 train from Nuremberg in the Munich Central Station. The din of the massive engine grows more intense, culminating with a prolonged hiss as the locomotive halts at the platform, steam erupting in every direction. Already, porters in livery are rushing to unload baggage as passengers step from their cars. On the opposite platform, an operator pulls the cord for a three-chime whistle and another train begins chugging toward its next destination: Berlin, capital of the German empire.

In Ticket to Ride Germany, build your own rail network to connect cities listed on your Destination Tickets. Watch out for your opponents who might be trying to reach the same far-flung corners of the German empire and outwit them by collecting valuable Passenger Meeples from the cities faster than they can. As with all installments in the Ticket to Ride series, this game can be learned in 5 minutes and provides hours of fun for families and experienced gamers alike. Hop on board!

Ticket to Ride Germany is a complete, new game that does not require the original version and is guaranteed to offer you hours of enjoyment.

Designer’s Notes

Ticket to ride Germany adds passengers into the mix. And why not, because more than 2 billion passengers ride trains in Germany each year!

Since there are more passengers available in the big cities like Berlin and Munich, you may want to consider connecting these cities early in the game, regardless of your tickets. Or you might want to consider drawing more tickets early in the game so you'll have more reason to connect some or all of the big cities. Also, since the really big tickets all run north to south, a good route from Denmark to Switzerland or Austria will set you up for a big score. Just make sure you have enough trains for all the routes you need to build.
