New, 7 comments

Boardgame maker Days of Wonder is launching Ticket to Ride on Android, the company announced today.

For $6.99, players can snag the digital adaptation of the company's railway building game. The Android version includes both single-player and online multiplayer modes using the boardgame's classic U.S. map. Add-on content released for other digital versions — including maps for Asia, Europe, Switzerland and the U.S. as it appeared in 1910 — will be available for purchase in the in-app store.

Ticket to Ride will challenge players with four unique AI challengers, or "personalities," and contextual in-game notes from the game's Conductor to help you navigate maps.

Players can also play across platforms against others using the iPad, Windows PC, Mac or browser-based versions available on Days of Wonder's website.

In a press statement, developer Days of Wonder said Ticket to Ride has sold more than 2 million physical copies and 2 million digital editions across iOS, Windows PC and Mac. The company recommends players run the Android game on tablets 1280 pixels wide and higher running software version 4.0.3 and up.

Ticket to Ride was published in 2004 as a boardgame in which players vie to establish railway routes on a map of the United States and southern Canada. The game has crossed over into video games and an adaptation developed with Next Level Games launched in 2008 for Xbox Live, iPad in May 2011 and for iPhone and iPod Touch that fall. Ticket to Ride also launched on Steam last month.
