Asmodee has been providing free print and play games through a portal to help fans through the lockdown.
When Geek Native first reported on the portal it had games like Drixit, Dobble, Combo Color, Unlock, Cortex and Timeline. It’s expanded since then with freebies and demos for the likes of Carcassonne and Catan.
Today, they’ve added a free print and play expansion for Ticket to Ride called Stay at Home.
How does Ticket to Ride work with staying at home? Good question. In this expansion, you’re one of four family members competing (maybe occasionally cooperating) to get tasks done around the house. Decisions are tricky; should you sort out the paperwork on your desk or detour via the fridge and spend some time on the balcony.
The press release from Asmodee today includes a quote from Adrien Martinot, Head of home-based playtesting. Is that a real role? It sounds great! Anyway, Adrien jokes;
As a board game publisher, we are really committed to helping people have fun while staying at home. We started working on this project at the beginning of the lockdown, which gave me the opportunity to stay entertained as well thanks to the playtesting.”
Ticket to Ride is looked after by Days of Wonder, an Asmodee company, and if you’re a fan its worth keeping in mind that there are digital games available at their site.
