PLAYED FOR YOU
Ticket to Ride Asia
Map Collection 1
Basic mechanics of all Ticket to Ride editions is to connect as many cities as possible with your Train Cars. In your turn, you can draw train cards or use a track between cities by placing one of your wagons on each section of the track and handing in the necessary cards in the color of the track or draw a destination destination cards. You score for tracks between cities, uninterrupted tracks according to your destination cards and the longest uninterrupted track. You win if you achieve the highest score. This Asia expansion features a double-sided board for Team Asia and Legendary Asia.
Team Asia is played in teams of 2 players, the players of a team take turns one after the other. If you draw cards you take one up, the other is placed in the team’s card holder for use by the team members; track can be build in any mixture of cards in hand and team cards. For destination cards you draw five, keep three and place on of those into the team card-older. There are revised rules for tunnels and triple tracks.
Legendary Asia has been designed for 2-5 players and features Long Route Destination Tickets and Mountain Routes, for which you must discard a Train Car for each marked section of the track; it is out of the game, but scores victory points. For Ferries you must discard a locomotive card for each section so marked and Train cards for normal sections of the Ferry track.
As all other expansion for Ticket to Ride this one, too, introduces interesting new details for the Game of the Year 2004; fans of the series will like it very much, as especially the team variant offers a completely new feel of the game.
