Ticket to Ride Expansion 5 United Kingdom and Pennsylvania
|Item Number:||DOW DO7223|
Requires a Ticket to Ride Base game (trains and train cards from a base set, such as USA, Europe, or Germany) to play.
Place the first rails of the glorious train adventure that all started in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland in the 19th century.
Learn to master the power of steam to build trains that go faster and farther, develop your technologies, and reach the far cities of Scotland and Ireland before your opponents! This expansion also includes the Pennsylvania map: in a state full of railroad history, invest in the most profitable companies to develop your rail network. But don't let your opponents outbid you, or you risk losing the benefits of your investments!

Notes from the Designer - Ticket to Ride Pennsylvania is perhaps the simplest expansion of all in terms of the additional rules, but adds a lot to the strategic choices of what routes to build and when to build them. Don’t be surprised to see this mechanic or something close to it in future expansions.
Ticket to Ride United-Kingdom on the other hand changes the basic system more than any other expansion. The limited starting technology forces players to make some early strategic choices, often forcing them to all build in the same area around London, and vying for crucial routes in the north of England. But as the game continues, players can take quite a few different paths to victory, focusing on bonus points, on tickets, on long routes, and more.
