Ticket to Ride: United Kingdom will include a double-sided game board. One side will show a map of the United Kingdom, including Great Britain and Ireland, set in the 19th Century, at the dawn of the railroad revolution. To play on this map, a completely new set of train cards are also included. A unique feature of this scenario is the introduction of Technology cards that allow players to improve the quality and sophistication of their trains during the game, allowing faster runs and longer routes. Players must use Locomotive cards to purchase the Technology cards, forcing them to decide between technological development or expanding their route network on the map. This scenario supports 2 to 4 players. The other side of the game board shows a map of Pennsylvania. Playing this scenario uses a deck of Stock Shares, representing actual historical railroads that operated in the region shown on the map. When a player completes a route on the map, they have the opportunity to "invest" in a company through the use of the Stock Shares, with control of each company awarding bonus points at the end of the game. This scenario supports 2 to 5 players.

While Pennsylvania is merely OK, it's the United Kingdom map that brings Ticket to Ride to a whole new level in my eyes. Using any four cards as a single wildcard makes top decking not annoying, and having to separately buy your abilities to lay track into different spots adds an engine building aspect to the game. You simply cannot hoard a massive number of cards, but have to start building very early instead. This is the expansion that brought back my interest to play Ticket to Ride. It's not really a good fit for beginners, but very satisfying for people who've already seen it all.
UK- The UK system is really cool! I like the idea of having to buy certain upgrades in order to complete more objectives. It took that basic game of TTR that I was use to and added a lot more strategy. TTR is always fun and I am always looking for new ways to play. My biggest issue with the game is just remembering what I have bought and what do I still need to buy and can I build this or not things like that. PENN-
