First, we of course need some appropriate music going. Perfect. Now then, Days of Wonder is already looking ahead to the spooky season by announcing Ticket to Ride: Ghost Train. It’s coming, appropriately enough, this September and October (depending on where you’re at in the world).
From the announcement:
Discover Ticket to Ride: Ghost Train, a new introduction to the Ticket to Ride series.
Easy to learn and quick to play, Ticket to Ride: Ghost Train is a chilling introduction to the Ticket to Ride series. In this haunting edition of the classic Ticket to Ride First Journey, parents and kids collect Parade Float cards to claim routes on the map, and try to visit different locations in this hair-raising town.
From the Mad Scientist’s Lab to the Gingerbread House and on to the Lonely Barn, players will have to make connections between locations on the map. Will they succeed in getting the Trick or Treat bonus along the way? Get ready because going from the Dark Forest region to the Seashore region can be a little eerie in this ghostly atmosphere.
Ticket to Ride: Ghost Train is a standalone game designed for 2 to 4 players and plays in 15 to 30 minutes. It includes 1 Game Board, 80 Plastic Haunted Carriages, 72 Parade Float Cards 33 Ticket Cards, 4 Trick or Treat Bonus Cards and 1 Jackpot card. Ticket to Ride: Ghost Train is expected to be available in September in Europe and North America and in October worldwide at a suggested retail price of $34,99/32,99€.
