Days of Wonder Announces Ticket To Ride: New York

For many years, players have enjoyed Ticket to Ride. However, some feel that the game can take a bit too long. Collecting all those like-colored cards can take a while. Well, in a city like New York, there's no time to sit around and be idle. You gotta go, go, go! So it makes sense that Ticket to Ride: New York, would streamline the game, making routes shorter, and thus shortening the overall game.

Ok, so I was being a little facetious, saying that we were expecting a Snowpocalypse here in Atlanta, with the little bit of snow that was coming down at the time... but... yeah... we had a bit of a Snowpocalypse. That was the view from my front door last night and it was still much the same this morning. Thankfully, since then, the sun's come out and much of it is melting. But still... yeah, quite a thing. Good day to stay in and do some gaming. But what games? Well, you can find out what games are like with the Review Roundup!

While we might not think of them much anymore, for the longest time, trains were the main mode of long-distance transportation.

The set also brings you Technology cards, letting you create better locomotives. You can pick up your copy now.

Days of Wonder Announces Ticket To Ride: France and Old West

All aboard!
Days of Wonder continues their Ticket to Ride series with a new line going in. This one will take you to France and the Old West (though not at the same time). Ticket to Ride: France includes a double-sided map, with one letting players build routes all across France during the Industrial Revolution. Players will need to lay down tracks and decide what color those routes are before actually laying out their trains. The other side of the map is the Old West, where players will build routes from their home cities. But beware, build a route to a rival's city and they'll earn points, too.
