I've always enjoyed Ticket to Ride but why would someone need another map? Because this one plays teams and it is so much fun! The rules restrict table talk between team players which ramps up the intensity and the fun level. Because 3 teams can play that means we finally have a Ticket to Ride game that 6 people can play. As others have mentioned, you also have a bonus map on the back. This is a good deal and a must have for a TTR fan.
Very decent map expansion for ticket to ride. It's got an excellent theme matched with incredible art (and new cards!!) and a new "team" system on one side. That's right, it is DOUBLE SIDED. That is value people. Get it and squirm as people pay more than ever for the few routes on one side and then team up to beat your opponents on the other. Splendid!
This is a great map pack - two new maps, both best with 4+ players - for $10 per map. Very nicely done, challenging, and I appreciate the way Days of Wonder grouped map pack 1 for one range of player numbers while the forthcoming pack 2 will feature 2-4 player maps. Definitely worth purchasing if your game group is medium sized!
