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 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").
