Amazon and Days of Wonder launch first Alexa skills for Ticket to Ride and Ticket to Ride Europe

  • Amazon and Days of Wonder are changing how players experience board games by introducing the first official Alexa skills for Ticket to Ride and Ticket to Ride Europe for free.

The move hopes to welcome new players aboard the award-winning games by Alan R. Moon and act as conductors for even the most experienced rail-riders. These skills replace the rule books by taking players on a guided experience of the games and offer the option to use it as an additional player.

Days of Wonder is excited to announce that both official skills are available now in English and French languages in the United States, the United Kingdom, and France.

After saying, “Alexa, launch Ticket to Ride”or “Alexa, launch Ticket to Ride Europe”, players are taken on a guided journey from setup to the end of the game for either game. No matter the player’s experience level, the skills offer new ways to play and learn. For those new to the game, they offer full rules walk throughs during play sessions. Veteran players can skip the walk throughs and use other helpful tools that are part of the experience. The skills customise themselves to the number of players and track their remaining trains, the longest route, points, and more.

They also act as an additional player for groups looking for an extra person or anyone who wants to get in a solo game against the skill itself. While each player takes their turn, the skills provide thematic background music and sound effects to immerse everyone in the world of Ticket to Ride.
