First the extremely successful boardgame, then the recent card game, and now Days of Wonder‘s Ticket to Ride has been translated over to Xbox Live. I’m not sure the award-winning game (which took the Spiel Des Jahres ’04 and an Origins Award in ’05, to name a couple) is fully conveyed by the amusing video at the Playful Entertainment site, but still, it’s good to see more quality tabletop titles reaching a broader audience. Please note I’ve refrained from stating the game has left or arrived at any sort of station – you’re welcome.
The developers there apparently hold the licensing rights to the Privateer Press minis games, and… have made CGI promo videos but don’t want to develop games around them themselves. Can’t say I blame them; the expense of a 3D game is ridiculous.
