We care deeply about the Ticket to Ride Online player experience, and are unwilling to compromise it with the issues inherent to mobile play (impromptu phone calls, spotty cellular coverage, etc.)• The other maps (Europe, Switzerland) offered in Ticket to Ride for iPad have a level of detail (placing train stations in cities, etc.) that does not lend itself well to the screen size of current mobile devices. Rather than provide a sub-par game experience, we chose to keep those out.** What else?We care deeply about your ideas, comments and suggestions.

    A nice addition to the Ticket to Ride family. I really enjoy the gameplay and it's nice to be able to play the game without having to pull out all the game pieces and game board.

    Despite all of its shortcomings when compared to the iPad build, Ticket to Ride Pocket is still an excellent portable adaptation of one of the best board games of the last 10 years.

    If you want the full experience and have the hardware, go for the iPad version, but otherwise, this is a great way to get your TTR fix.
