Another British/Ireland map for Ticket to Ride game made by Wiebke Lüdemann (Illustration) and Stefan Grunhold (Strategy).
The board which is 70 x 80 cm in size, connects United Kingdom with the rest of Europe (e.g. Amsterdam in The Netherlands as well as Bergen and Stavanger in Norway, Helgoland in Germany, etc.).
1. In addition to the original Ticket to Ride Europe this map contains routes which are 7 waggons in length - scoring 18 points.
2. The design and illustration is truly unique and awesome. The ferry routes are multi-colored (instead of having the original's grey color / locomotive symbol on it). Due to the integration of some "overseas"-destinations, a lot of ferries are available. The same is true for tunnels, which are indicated by rounded boxes. Here, I was missing the clearer tunnel borders from the original, but it is not a big disadvantage. The tickets look wonderful - long and short routes are clearly distinguishable. A lot of love, energy and enthusiam has been put into the illustration. Congratulations.
3. The scoring track is a great novelty as it uses railroad tracks in the background which looks really nice.
