Days of Wonder has announced plans to release Ticket to Ride:  Germany worldwide.  The new game will release in Europe this June and at Gen Con in the U.S.

Ticket to Ride: Germany is a revised version of the Germany-only Zug-um-Zug: Deutschland, originally released in 2012.  It is played on a map of late 19th Century Germany, based on the same route network as the Ticket to Ride:  Marklin edition (see "'Ticket to Ride Marklin Edition'").  This version of the game introduces a new Passenger mechanic, in which players race to collect the limited supply of Passenger Meeples from the different cities on the board.  Ticket to Ride: Germany will also feature short and long Destination Tickets, allowing players to tailor their choices, and a special "Globetrotter" bonus card.

Ticket to Ride:  Germany includes 1 game board, 225 train car tokens, 200 cards, 60 passenger meeples, 1 cloth bag, and 5 scoring markers.  MSRP is $50.00.  The game was created by veteran designer Alan R. Moon, and supports play by 2 to 5 players, ages 8 and up.  Games typically take 30-60 minutes.  This stand-alone game does not require any earlier Ticket to Ride games.

Ticket to Ride has long been a cornerstone of Days of Wonder’s product lineup, ranking ninth on ICv2’s top 10 list as of last fall (see "Top 10 Hobby Channel Board Games--Fall 2016").
