Chance to win a Ticket to Ride to Paris
UK Games Expo Open and National TTR Tournament
Days of Wonder have launched a World Championship of their game Ticket to Ride to codincide with the 10th anniversary of the game's release. All around the world including the UK stores will hold regional qualifiers for a National final. In the UK that 16 place National Final will be held at the UKGE. We will soon post a link for details of the regionals on the Esdevium website but for now the link on the right gives you an overview of the world tournament structure. Find out about the regional finals and enter them. The winner (and maybe some runners up) of those regionals qualify for the Ticket to Ride National to be held on Sunday 1st June at UK Games Expo.
If you can't make a regional you have another chance as the "UKGE Ticket to Ride Open" is also a qualifier. The Open will be on Saturday 31st May. The top four players from the "TTR Open" will qualify for the final on Sunday. Other good news - if you qualify for the final then while you will still need a day pass for the show UKGE has dropped any charge for the tournament.
The Halesowen Board Game Club will run both events along with many other board game touranments at UKGE.
There will be prizes of copies of the special Anniversary edition of Ticket to Ride up for grabs. The winner of the National will receive an invitation to go to Paris to represent the UK in the World Championships in September. Travel provided by UK Games Expo with accommodation provided by Days of Wonder.
So get practicing, stoke that boiler and make sure to be ready to buy your tickets on 16th March.
