The pre-order at Cool Stuff is $68. Ouch.

It comes with a crap ton of stuff. Price sounds right for what you get compared to other TTR games. Double-sided board, two decks of train/ship cards. Two sets of destination tickets. Three plastic sculpts in all the player colors. Basically 2 games in 1 so really only $34 each.

Rails & Sails:
2 maps
165 Plastic Trains + 250 Plastic Ships + 15 Harbors = 430 pieces
140 Travel Cards + 120 Ticket Cards = 260 cards

Ticket to Ride:
1 map
225 Colored Train Cars
144 Illustrated cards

So... double the maps, almost double the plastic components, and 116 more cards.

Why would the price not be more than other TTR games?
