Ticket to Ride from Days of Wonder is a great “gateway game” into the hobby of tabletop gaming. Now there’s a way to introduce younger gamers to this game!

Ticket to Ride: First Journey is focused on a younger audience of around 6 years old and up.

Instead of keeping your route cards a secret till the end of the game, players are encouraged to slap the finished ticket on the table and announce “TICKET” to everyone playing. The new version of Ticket to Ride will play in under 30 minutes which is great for the little ones.

You’ll only be able to find Ticket to Ride: First Journey at Target stores around the U.S. The great news is that it you’ll start seeing this on store shelves on July 31st!
