10th ANNIVERSARY EDITION IS THE TICKET TO FUN

I just got home from purchasing the 10th Anniversary edition of one of my -all-time favorite boardgames - Ticket To Ride. I love the process of unwrapping a new game and opening the box. That new game smell is akin to that new car smell.

This deluxe addition is big! A big hit and big update. Fans of the game are going to be super impressed.  I have been impatiently waiting for Days of Wonder to release and distribute the new version  for months. A copy arrived on time at Newfoundland and Labrador's premiere board game and comic store, Downtown Comics today!

This special addition features a much larger board, larger cards, new visuals, unique trains and is bundled with the USA 1910 expansion set! This is the definitive release that has already provided many hours of fun, relaxation and competition around our dinning room table over the past decade.

The extra-large board is lovely but best of all it is huge which is a fantastic addition to the game-play here at the Whittle household. We have a huge dinning room table that dwarfed the smaller board making it difficult for all five people to view the routes and sit around the game. The new board eliminates that challenge.

The bad news is that it is going to cost you $110 or so which is a big chunk of a gamers budget.  However, Days of Wonder is really giving fans a thoughtful product with new art, redesigned cards and new trains.

I would be remiss in forgetting to thank Mom and Dad for this great Father's Day present!
