Ticket to Ride: Germany


Categories: ,


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. Build your empire across 19th century Germany in Ticket to Ride: Germany!

In Ticket to Ride: Germany, players build their own rail network across a new, beautifully illustrated board of Germany at the end of the 19th century to connect cities listed on their Destination Tickets. But, competitors need to watch out for their 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.

Using the route network previously seen in the Märklin EditionTicket to Ride: Germany also introduces a new and exclusive passengers rule.
