Days of Wonder announces Ticket to Ride: Track Switcher

Something a little different in this new iteration of Ticket to Ride, called Track Switcher, from Days of Wonder. Instead of trying to create routes, you're looking to get trains across town in the right order and to the right places. So, it's much more of a puzzle game, which I'm always a fan of.

From the announcement:

Welcome to the 1900, the Age of the Locomotive! Railways connect every major city in the country, allowing people to travel considerable distances in just a few days. Trains are more popular than ever before and the railyard continuously bustles with activity as engineers and yard workers scramble to move cars onto their departure tracks. As a Railyard Manager, you have an essential role to play.

Find out about Ticket to Ride: Track Switcher, the first brain teaser puzzle game featuring Ticket to Ride.

In Ticket to Ride: Track Switcher, players will use cognitive skills like logic, spatial reasoning and sequencing to direct locomotives and shift trains into their correct positions. Players will direct locomotives and shift trains into their correct position based on the puzzle card to ensure every train will leave on schedule. Players will need to be precise: unnecessary moves will make them lose precious time!
