From the Bavarian countryside to the great Hanseatic ports of the North, the
Ticket to Ride – Märklin Edition boardgame take you on an unforgettable rail
trip across Germany!
Ticket to Ride – Märklin Edition is the third installment in Days of
Wonder's best-selling boardgame series that has won over 15 international game
awards, including the prestigious Spiel des Jahres.
The boardmap for the Märklin Edition is based on a map of Germany and
introduces Passengers and Merchandise to the Ticket to Ride gameplay.
Passengers are used to pick up merchandise worth different numbers of points
along the routes that they claim. Varying stacks of merchandise tokens with
different point values are placed next to the different cities on the map.
Players can place one of their 3 Passenger tokens on any city along a route
that they claim. On his game turn, the player can choose to then move one of his
passengers from the city it currently occupies along any or all of his
continuous routes, picking up Merchandise Tokens from each city he moves
through. Of course he'll always take the highest remaining tokens. The point
total of the tokens is then added to his score.
Other game play changes are the vertical orientation of the German map, and
instead of a bonus for longest route, the 10 point bonus card goes to the
player who completes the most Destination Tickets.
While boardgamers may not be familiar with the Märklin name, train hobbyists
consider it the premier name in the model train world. This German company has
been around for over 140 years and is the world's leader in the miniature
train hobby. This edition features 118 historical train photographs, each
carefully selected from the incomparable Märklin archives.
Ticket to Ride – Märklin Edition is a unique opportunity for Märklin
enthusiasts to share their passion with family and friends via a fun and
