VGG Entry: Ticket to Ride

Notes: I had all but written a post proclaiming that Ticket To Ride Pocket was the new undisputed 3rd pillar in the holy triumvirate of über iOS board game titles that includes the vaunted Carcassonne and Ascension. And then Days of Wonder goes and does something that neither of those other apps have ever done. THEY SET IT TO FRIKKEN FREE!*

I had been singing the praises of this app last week in its update announcement thread. I own both the iPad app and the iPhone app, and because of the async I actually play this one more often. I just couldn't say enough great things about this tight little app. That they would make it free is simply an astounding action and a demonstration in the economics of abundance. From an industry standpoint, I think it is a very shrewd move on the part of DoW, and could very well be an amazing stroke of genius for this title, both app and print.

But don't worry about that. Simply download this free little app and play it for all it's worth, which is a lot!

* Note: This will likely only be free for one day as part of a FAAD promotion.
