PARIS – October 30, 2023 - Following its success at Essen (the game sold out in both German and English versions), Ticket to Ride Legacy: Legends of the West is hitting the stores on November 3. Already acclaimed by critics, this evolving board game by Rob Daviau, Matt Leacock, and Alan R. Moon is set to captivate a wider audience. You have 12 games to become the greatest railway magnate in the USA!
The "legacy" game concept is about offering an evolving game. Each game is a new episode, much like a TV series. Rules change, boards expand, new game mechanics emerge while others disappear... The box contains a 12-game adventure. After finishing them, you can replay the last episode as many times as you want! It's a unique and accessible experience, perfect to share with family or friends, and not just for Ticket to Ride fans!
In Ticket to Ride Legacy: Legends of the West, players will experience the epic saga of the American railway. The campaign begins in 1865 on the East Coast. Over more than 30 years and 12 games, each player, leading a railroad company, will strive to connect the West Coast and build the continental railway network. They will face obstacles, undergo twists and turns, and finally achieve their goal. Alan R. Moon, Matt Leacock, and Rob Daviau took 5 years to create this game, arguably one of the most anticipated of the year.
"With Legends of the West, each game is unique, the story unveiling gradually," explains Adrien Martinot, Game Line Manager at Days of Wonder. "New rules and game elements will punctuate this unique gaming experience, full of unexpected events and cunning adversaries. It was essential for us to offer new experiences and features. Nearly all the mechanics created by Alan, Rob, and Matt are entirely new to the Ticket to Ride series."
While the main objective remains completing tickets as in Ticket to Ride, players will encounter unexpected situations, opportunities, and the chance to fill their vault with earnings. In short, it's a brand-new competitive adventure.
Designed for 2 to 5 players aged 10 and up, each journey offers an immersive storytelling experience lasting from 20 to 90 minutes. The game will be available in stores on November 3, priced at €109.99/$119.99.
