Newest Ticket to Ride Pocket Game Goes Free This Weekend [Daily Freebie]


If you haven’t played Ticket to Ride yet, all you need to know is that the iPad version is the most addictive board game I’ve played on the device. On the iPhone? Nothing even comes close (O.K., except maybe chess and Words with Friends).

This weekend the newest version of the game to hit the iPhone, Ticket to Ride Europe Pocket, goes from $2 to free. Don’t miss out on this one — and make sure you tell a buddy so you can play ‘em.

TTR Europe Pocket is based on the real-life board game of the same name. Days of Wonder has done a spectacular job of shrinking their award-winning series onto the iPhone’s tiny screen.

If you already have the original TTR Pocket, note that the Europe version also contains new game features like tunnels and train stations. As with the original TTR Pocket, opponents can be digital, local via Bluetooth, wifi or pass-and-play, or asynchronous via Game Center.

While the iPad version of TTR features in-app purchases that allow you to add versions of the game, the TTR Pocket games on the iPhone exist as separate downloads for each version — sort of. The exception is that the Swiss map is available as an in-app purchase from TTR Europe Pocket.
