Entertainment company Propagate Content is working with Asmodee Entertainment to make a Ticket to Ride TV Show. No, this won't be some sort of drama about who can build the longest railroad — this brand-new television show is going to pit players against one another in an exciting adventure game.
On the off chance you're not a tabletop gamer, Ticket to Ride is a 2004 board game where players take turns building their own railroads across the land. Players must draw cards of different colors to complete lines in the hopes of securing routes between two cities that they drew at the beginning of the game. Bonuses are awarded for creating the longest rail line and completing your objectives, but players also risk losing points if they fail to complete their routes. The game has proved immensely popular, spawning several additional games set in various locations around the world including the United States, Europe, New York City, and others.
That same gameplay will serve as the inspiration for a Ticket to Ride TV Show as reported by Deadline. The show will see five teams pitted against one another in a quest to overcome challenges and travel the most miles by land, sea, and air.
"Asmodee Entertainment will develop new and exciting entertainment experiences based on the vibrant universes of our popular games," said Asmodee’s President Stéphane Carville. "We are delighted to bring one of our most iconic properties to life with the help of our visionary partners at Propagate. We look forward to future collaborations."
No further details about this new TV show have been announced just yet. In the meantime, you can pick up the Steam version of Ticket to Ride for $3.99 during the Steam Summer Sale 2019, a 60% discount off of its regular price.
