In an effort to bring customers aboard at even more stations, Days of Wonder has announced plans for Ticket to Ride: The Dice Expansion by Alan Moon. Usable with any of the TTR boardgame sets, the eight custom dice – five Train dice, and three Tunnel dice for certain boards – will replace the Train cards for purposes of completing Destination Tickets. Though TTR: The Dice Expansion isn’t due until October (premiering at Essen), the full rules are available as a PDF for the curious.
Alright. I’m game on this. Alan Moon has earned enough cred with me to not just dismiss this offhand. However, if this thing costs more than $12, I’m crying foul.
1. Just hope that it is better/more enjoyable than the card game.
2. Just hope that it is as fun as the Catan dice game.
I read the PDF of the rules, but this still seems like it will turn TTR into a Yahtzee variant.
I wonder if DOW is trying to move to the mass market. They have given BattleLore away to FFG, are going to pimp european language versions of Wits & Wagers (which can be found in Target in the U.S.), and now will turn TTR into a Yahtzee variant.
I would really like DoW to produce a 6 player (or more) variant of Ticket to Ride. I have friends who want to play, but often I find myself unable to play because the game does not handle more than five players.
Thank You Thank You
I would actually like to to see a six player continent of asia verison of ticket to ride. It could have the orient express theme.
