Thin map expansion not very large, runs slightly off rails.

Though $4.99 isn't much to spend on an expansion, it seems like a lot when you consider how little it changes the basic gameplay. The UK map, while providing a fresh network of possible routes to dominate, doesn't change things up enough to make things feel significantly different from the base game. Sure, it takes some finesse to decide when or if to spend your train cards on Technology, but one more layer of choice just isn't enough to justify asking players to pay so much more. (For reference, other map expansions range from $.99 to $1.99.) As with the free-to-play base game, Ticket to Ride: UK more or less requires you to buy additional maps; it's just not enough on its own.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
