She’s got a ticket to ride… and he’s got a ticket to ride… and they’ve got a ticket to ride. And they all care. I don’t blame them, Ticket to Ride is a great game, and soon, a new pair of maps will be available as Days of Wonder has announced Ticket to Ride: Japan. Of course, since the board has two sides, it’s not just Japan that gets featured, but also Italy. The Japanese map introduces bullet train routes, while Italy includes ferry routes. Have a look.
From the post:
Zoom across Japan in a bullet train admiring Mount Fuji through the mist or take the Tokyo subway to your final destination. Or if you prefer early 20th century steam engine trains, ride through the italian countryside, enjoy the alpenglow on majestic peaks and sunsets behind cypress hedges in glorious Tuscan landscapes.

As the Japan board offers some cooperative gameplay, players face a new dilemma. Some of the Routes are reserved for the Bullet Train network, so once one of those routes is claimed, it can be used by all players to complete Destination Tickets. On the other hand, the players who contribute most to this shared project will also be rewarded with a larger bonus. Italy, the second map featured in this expansion, is focused on the Regions in this country and on a brand new type of Ferry Route. Connect cities from all Regions in the same network to score extra points.
