"Spiel des jahres" 2004, Zug um Zug Ticket to Ride, is laying tracks and will be ready to pick up passengers from Xbox Live Arcade this Wednesday. The game is the debut title from Vancouver-based Playful Entertainment and will cost 800 MS Points ($10). Ticket to Ride joins other German board-to-digital leapers, Catan and Carcassonne.

Also arriving this week is Happy Tree Friends: False Alarm, which aims to deliver ten levels of action-puzzle ultra violence. Happy Tree Friends costs 800 MS Points ($10) and is rated "M," obviously. Ticket to Ride is rated "E," by the way, unless you use the Vision cam ... then an "AO" happening is never far behind.
