The board game Zug um Zug Europa is celebrating an anniversary: the title appeared around 15 years ago, and Days of Wonder is now considering a limited edition for collectors. Ticket to Ride Europe means for players a journey to the most beautiful places between Paris and Moscow - from Big Ben to the towering arches of the Colosseum, the glowing onion domes to the Eiffel Tower.
In order to do justice to collectors, the limited edition not only contains the standard game material, but also comes in a significantly enlarged version. A changed title - the anniversary edition is called Ticket to Ride Europe: 15 Years Edition - makes it clear to everyone: This is where the luxury edition is usually!
"Hard to believe it's been 15 years"
The new edition is a standalone game for two to five players and is therefore not only aimed at collectors, but also at beginners who have not yet owned the game. A game lasts between 30 and 60 minutes. The play box of the jubilation edition contains a huge game board of the European train routes with new illustrations, five metal boxes with 45 modeled wagons each, 15 colored stations, five scoring markers, the rulebook, 110 wagon cards, all 108 destination cards published so far, a Europa Express bonus card and a reference map for large cities.
"We hope you have another 15 years of fun."

The equipment of the extended version of Zug um Zug Europa is no less than luxurious. The board game remains basically untouched and continues to offer train adventures for families and friends. A lot has changed, primarily visually, including the central game elements: the trains and stations. With finely detailed plastic trains and stations, delivered in high-quality metal boxes, and new illustrations, the game has been beefed up and expanded with all destination cards designed to date. "This deluxe version is the definitive edition of the classic Ticket to Ride Europe," says Days of Wonder.
"It's hard to believe it's been 15 years. Step by step Europe still looks so fresh and young. But this version has grown, both in size and with the many new objective maps that create endless possibilities for re-experiencing the game,” says author Alan R. Moon. He is the designer of the game. "The new carriages and stations and the new graphics make the game look absolutely stunning once it's on the table."
How popular the board game is is shown not least by the countless localizations. The anniversary edition of Ticket to Ride Euro will be available in the following languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Korean, Dutch, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Polish, Brazilian, Japanese, Russian, Hungarian, Icelandic, Portuguese , Czech, Slovak and Traditional Chinese.
The board game should be available in Europe and North America in spring 2021 at a recommended retail price of 99,99 euros.
