The emergence of digital distribution has been a wonderful thing for the tabletop gaming crowd. You can play Catan
on your Xbox; Risk
on your PC or iOS device. Now, Ticket to Ride
is available on the iPad. In Ticket to Ride
, players pull colored train cards, hoping to complete any number of designated train routes on a large game board -- the United States and Europe are among the most well-known maps.
The $6.99 iPad app (developed by Days of Wonder) looks to offer the full experience: You can play online; there's full Game Center support; and optional Europe, Switzerland and USA 1910 maps, available for $.99 each during this special launch week window, can be downloaded in-game.
