Simple, elegant gameplay and intense strategy come together in the critically acclaimed railway-themed board game gone digital, Ticket to Ride from Days of Wonder. The goal is simple - collect trains, claim railway across the map, connect famous cities and build the longest routes to win. Now with PlayLink functionality, Ticket to Ride is the perfect mix of digital and physical, putting social gameplay at the forefront, and automating the scores and progress. 

Together players can use their PlaystationⓇ4 system to launch the main game on TV, and then grab their Apple iOS or Android devices to use as controllers. A dedicated app called Ticket to Ride for PlayLink enables the connection. Players can enjoy the game without any pesky pieces to keep track of… or any math!

Ticket to Ride brings the strategy of its board game origins to a faithfully recreated experience, unique to PlayLink for PlaystationⓇ4. The smartphone control system allows players to hide their next move from competitors, until it’s too late!

“The PlayLink platform is perfectly suited for digital board games, and we’ve been working closely with Sony to make sure Ticket to Ride fully leverages PlayLink’s unique capabilities” said Philippe Dao, Chief Commercial & Marketing Officer of Asmodee Digital. “The unprecedented format gives fans and gamers even greater accessibility to play Ticket to Ride with friends and family.”

The Deluxe Edition of Ticket to Ride is coming later, complete with every map and expansion from the digital edition already available on mobile and PC. An exclusive map set in France that’s never been available before digitally will be available for the release. In fact, no maps have been playable with a smartphone as a controller, until now. Ticket to Ride on PlayLink is a first for Asmodee Digital.
