Ticket to Ride is nothing new, after all we’ve seen it rolling around the board game scene, and previously in virtual form on Xbox 360, PC and iOS.

Priced up at £16.74, or available for free to those holding full Xbox Game Pass access, Ticket to Ride will see you travelling the world in order to connect to cities, utilise a variety of tactics, and attempt to block others from doing the same. Taking charge of specific routes, dropping line blocks where you see fit will see success made in Ticket to Ride, and anyone familiar with the board game or the virtual options available elsewhere will be right at home with what is on offer.
