With the recent announcements around BattleLore and Memoir 44, many have been wondering what was next for the French gaming juggernaut, Days of Wonder.  It appears that more Ticket to Ride is next.  But with dice.

Really.  We’re not kidding.

The expansion uses your existing game boards and relies on the same basic concepts as standard Ticket to Ride.  The main difference is that instead of using train tickets to lay track, players roll dice to determine what track can be layed, draw destination tickets, or take “route tokens” that can be saved for future use.  The newest expansion in the franchise will be available at the Essen Game Fair in October and will be available for purchase in the US and Europe “around the same time” for $20 (US).
