Ticket To Ride: San Francisco Announced For August Release

Asmodee and Days Of Wonder announced a new version of Ticket To Ride as they'll be releasing one centered around San Francisco. This one has been designed to be a family game that is less complicated and has easy-to-learn rules, as you'll be able to play 5-15 minute game sessions at a time instead of the super-long drawn-out ones you may be used to with other editions. It's basically been designed so that first-time players can hang with vets of the series, while also making it a more compact title that you can travel with as it has small carry-on packaging. According to the info released, those of us in the United States will be able to get our hands on Ticket to Ride: San Francisco exclusively at Target in June for $25. However, the worldwide release of the game (including retailers outside of Target) won't happen until August.
