Days of Wonder has announced that their popular Ticket to Ride series is adding a new and sea-worthy title: Ticket to Ride Rails & Sails.
It is a stand-alone game for 2-5 players and as with other Ticket To Ride games, you’ll be collecting sets of cards in order to build routes between cities. Ticket to Ride Rails & Sails lets you extend your routes all across the world as your passengers can transfer from your trains to large steamers that will ferry them across oceans.
The game comes with a double sided board featuring a world map on one side and the great lakes of North America on the other.
You’ll also get minis galore! 165 colored Train Cars (33 each in blue, red, green, yellow and black), 250 colored Ships (50 in each color), 140 Travel Cards (80 Train Cards and 60 Ship Cards), and 15 Harbors (3 in each color). Ticket to Ride: Rails & Sails will be premiering at GenCon in August The rest of the world will have to wait until early September to buy it. MSRP is looking to be around $80/€70.
Jess: I am a pretty cut-throat rail baron when it comes to Ticket to Ride. I can’t wait to see how this new version plays. Will I rule the seven seas as well or will my empire sink into the depths? Only time and $80 will tell.
