Now, Ticket to Ride is available on the iPad. In Ticket to Ride, players pull colored train cards, hoping to complete any number of designated train routes on a large game board -- the United States and Europe are among the most well-known maps.

The $6.99 iPad app (developed by Days of Wonder) looks to offer the full experience: You can play online; there's full Game Center support; and optional Europe, Switzerland and USA 1910 maps, available for $.99 each during this special launch week window, can be downloaded in-game.%Gallery-124061%
