I read that Orient Express was supposed to available to order shortly after Essen. Did I miss my opportunity to order it or has it yet to be made available to order? Thank you.

I see this item has been paired with orders for Ticket to Ride Map Pack 5 which I already own. Will Orient Express be made available to order by itself?

Technically it says next to the order page for Map Pack 5:

Unfortunately, they have about a week left to make this statement true.

Well, it didn't happen in 2015. Disappointed.

Any word DOW? I see it's available with order of map pack 5, but I supported my FLGS to get Map Pack 5 and would still like to get my hands on this mini-expansion.

Where do you see it available to order with map pack 5? I don't see this.

It's automatically added to your order.

They must have just changed policy - when I go there, all I see is a polite note saying that they don't sell online anymore.

Good. I thought I was going blind. All I see is them selling their apps.

Apparently this policy changed a few days ago - kind of surprised it wasn't mentioned here with lots of exclamation points - or maybe I just missed it.

Wow! Must have happened on January 1st. ASOMODEE (their parent company) just announced that the company and its subsidiaries are changing how they sell and distribute games. I didn't think for a moment, though, that they'd stop selling games on their own sites. Very unexpected and unfortunate. I feel that will make finding Orient Express much more difficult...

Well it looks like you can still buy goodies and replacement parts, so maybe it'll fall under one of those categories. (Note: the goodies right now cost $0. Just pay shipping. )

I'm so glad I was able to order the UK TTR map and get the Orient Express mini expansion along with it before they stopped selling games on their website.

Wow. When I noticed the 'Orient Express' expansion on the DOW site, I tried to see if I could also purchase it through my local game store. They were clueless about it and stated 'no such thing'. Of course, if they bothered to look at the DOW site they would have seen it. Anyhow, so I decided to buy it directly from DOW a couple of days before Christmas. And, yes, it did include the OE cards but I had to pay overpriced shipping of $11.16. Knowing that they stopped selling games directly and now it appears that the OE cards may be hard to find, I guess the shipping price to get the OE cards was worth the trade off.

Complete and utter lies!

Instead Days of Wonder shut the web-store and refuse to answer questions about how to get this 'mini-expansion'.

VERY poor customer service imho, and will affect my purchasing choices in future.

Hello

Believe it or not but when I first posted this message, that's what the plan actually was.
As you might (or might not) know, there are changes going on in the way that Days of Wonder, now a part of the Asmodee group, will deal with customer service and/or the goodies in the future.

We are currently organizing this in the various regions of the world with our partners/distributors, but this (unfortunately) takes time.

I'm aware that it might feel frustrating on your side, but I can also assure you and everyone else here that we didn't design this expansion for it not to become available for as many people as possible...

As soon as we have a global solution, we will communicate about it on our regular channels and here as well...

Thanks for your attention and again, sorry for the frustration...

Franck, thanks for taking the time to respond and let us know what's happening so far as this mini-expansion is concerned.

The largest part of my own frustration was the lack of response from Days of Wonder/Asmodee (in the past I've found both companies to be helpful to customers), coupled with the 'misinformation'/change of direction.

This is the only expansion my son is missing, in the TTR collection, and I felt a little penalised for purchasing the GB map from the local gameshop, when I would have purchased from the website had I known that it would have included the expansion.

Same. I ordered locally and as a result don't have the mini-expansion, and for me it is also the only one I don't have.

It was for me too, until I logged in. Then the "Add to cart" icon is visible. Try that!

Edit: ...and I have Ticket to Ride: Europe as a registered game, if that might be relevant.

I do not have it registered and I was able to purchase it after logging in.
