Ticket to Ride Map Collection: Volume 5 – United Kingdom & Pennsylvania contains a double-sided game board with new rules for use with Ticket to Ride or Ticket to Ride: Europe with players now creating train lines in the UK and in Pennsylvania.
The United Kingdom half of this map collection introduces the concept of technology to Ticket to Ride. At the start of the game, players can build only one- and two-train routes and only in England. By spending wild cards, players gain the ability to build routes three trains long or longer, in addition to being able to build ferries across water or build train routes in Scotland, Wales and elsewhere. Players can also buy bonus cards that allow them to score extra points for taking certain actions during play.
The Pennsylvania half of this map collection adds a share mechanism to the basic Ticket to Ride game. Each time that a player completes a route, they claim a share of one of the companies depicted next to that route. At the end of the game, whoever holds more shares of a company than all other players receives points as a reward.
