|Ticket to Ride: Mauml;rklin is the third installment in Days of Wonder's best-selling Ticket to Ride series. The board for Mauml;rklin is based on a map of Germany and each individual card in the deck depicts a different Mauml;rklin Trains model. A DVD introducing players to the Mauml;rklin line of model trains is included [Edit: DVD no longer included in recent runs.]br/br/Mauml;rklin is a heavier version in the TTR series, allowing players to not only travel from city to city but also from cities to countries. A new mechanic is also introduced in the form of passengers and merchandise tokens. When the game is set-up a series of merchandise values worth victory points are placed on nominated cities. The values of these tokens diminish when multiple tokens are present within a single city, requiring players to move quickly to capture the higher valued tokens.br/br/These tokens can be collected by the players by placing their Passengers (3 per player), which can be achieved at the end of a turn in which a player lays trains to enter the city in question. Once a passenger is in play a player can forfeit their regular turn to move a passenger. Moving along a player's own train network comes at no cost and allows a player to take the top merchandise token from each city that is passed through. A passenger can also move along sections of track featuring other players trains but a passenger card must be paid each time this occurs to do so.br/br/The player who completes the most destination tickets receives a 10 point bonus (instead of the base game's longest route bonus).br/br/|
