Build your own American success story game after game with this immersive Legacy title from veteran board game designers
Paris, France — May 30, 2023 – Today, Days of Wonder and Asmodee announced Ticket to Ride® Legacy: Legends of the West, a multi-part campaign game with an immersive story told in 12 parts, designed by Rob Daviau, Matt Leacock and Alan R. Moon. The game will be demonstrated for the first time at Gen Con, and available in select retailers and the Asmodee official store on November 3 for $119.99 MSRP.
In Ticket to Ride® Legacy: Legends of the West, players embark on twelve thrilling journeys across North America as 19th century pioneers. The campaign begins on the East Coast, with players working their way to the West from one adventure to the next, meeting challenges along the way. Players will continue to complete tickets as the main objective, with added mechanics like building up a fortune in their vault, unlocking new frontiers and rules, and plenty of new surprises. Legends of the West offers an immersive and narrative experience while remaining easy to learn for new and veteran fans alike.
“We can’t wait to get this game into the hands of Ticket to Ride and legacy game fans,” said Adrien Martinot, Game Line Manager at Days of Wonder. “With Legends of the West, each game is different, with the story unfolding one layer at a time. New rules and game elements will punctuate this unique play experience, rife with unexpected events and cunning rivals.”
In the Legacy style, Legends of the West is a unique experience molded by player’s choices. Each player has their own roll to play, allowing them to change the way the story unfolds around them. Combined with evolving mechanics that change as the game progresses, players will have a new experience every time they gather around the board.
“It was crucial for us to provide new experiences and new gameplay features and not rehash mechanics from our successful Map Collection line,” said Martinot. “Nearly all of the mechanics created by Alan, Rob and Matt are completely new to the Ticket to Ride game line.”
Designed for 2-5 players aged 10+, each of the 12 journeys in Ticket to Ride® Legacy: Legends of the West offers players an immersive experience lasting between 20 to 90 minutes. Legends of the West includes 13 Frontier Boards, 280 Plastic Train Cars, 1 Campaign Box, 84 Train Cards, 33 Tickets, 7 Event Cards, 6 Newspaper Cards, 77 Postcards, 1 Story Deck, 5 Company Boxes, 8 Frontier Boxes, 1 Conductor’s Toolbox, 1 Rules Booklet, and much more to discover! Once the campaign is over, players will have a unique map that’s compatible with previous games, giving them an entire new board to play with friends and family.
