Ticket to Ride Map Collection: Volume 6 – France & Old West includes a double-sided game board that features France on one side and the western half of the United States on the other.

In the France half of this expansion, 2-5 players collect train cards and claim routes in order to complete tickets in hand, but most of the tracks on the board aren't colored! Each time that you draw cards, you must take a colored tile that's 2-5 train cars long and place that tile on an empty track bed. Once you've done this, any player can claim that route by discarding the appropriately colored cards from hand, as in any other Ticket to Ride game. (Single-length routes are already colored, and the map contains a number of gray-colored ferry routes.)

Multiple track beds on the game board overlap, and once a tile has placed on the board, any track beds crossed by this tile are off-limits and nothing can be built on them. At the end of the game, players score their tickets, with bonuses being awarded for longest continuous route and most tickets completed.

In the Old West half of the expansion, 2-6 players start the game by choosing (in reverse player order) a starting location for one of their three city pieces. The first route that a player claims must have this city as one of the route's two endpoints, and each subsequent route claimed must connect to that player's existing network.

After claiming a route, a player can place one of their remaining cities on either end of that route by discarding a matching pair of train cards. Only one city marker can be in each city. Whenever a player builds a route that connects to a city owned by another player, the owner of the city claims the points for the route, not the player placing the trains. If both endpoints of the route have cities, then the owner of each city scores these points. Whoever completes the most tickets in this expansion scores 15 bonus points.

As a variant, you can play Old West with Alvin the Alien. No player can start the game in Roswell, and the first player who builds a route into Roswell scores 10 points, then places the Alvin marker in any city that they control. The next player to connect to this city scores 10 points, then moves Alvin as before. Whoever controls Alvin at the end of the game scores 10 bonus points.

Dear friends & customers,

Brexit has changed the requirements for deliveries to the UK. As of 01.01.2021, new requirements now apply. These new requirements have implications both for us as a dealer and for you as a customer. In the following we have summarized what is changing and what these changes mean in detail.

The following cases must be distinguished:

Value of goods (without shipping costs)

  • £135 (~ 140 EUR)
    For shipments of goods exceeding the value of £135, the UK customer is liable for import VAT and, if applicable, customs duties. These must be paid by the customer before the goods can be received. A B2B client will have to provide a  EU VAT number or a UK VAT number. We will issue an invoice WITHOUT VAT.
  • < £135  (~ 140 EUR)
    For goods shipments that do not exceed a value of £135, there is generally no UK import VAT.
    However, there is a difference between B2B and B2C orders:
    • B2B: If the customer provides the trader with a UK VAT number, the customer becomes the tax debtor under a reverse charge procedure. In this case, the invoice of the trader will contain the reference "reverse charge". The UK customer is liable for import VAT and custom duties.
    • B2C: Since we as a trader would have to pay the import VAT and would also have to fulfill various bureaucratic tasks, we will refrain from making deliveries with a goods value of below £135 to the UK. Then again, there are different regulations for online marketplaces (OMP): With OMP participation (such as ebay and etsy), the OMP is considered the supplier from a VAT point of view and therefore the tax debtor. So if you buy our goods through the marketplaces ebay or etsy, then we can deliver also below the limit of £135 to private customers. From the end of January, we will expand our offering on these platforms. Nevertheless, some items will not be available for private customers in the UK (unless the value of goods is above £135 (see above).
