Asmodee Entertainment and Welbeck Publishing set to launch Ticket to Ride and Unlock! Escape Adventure puzzle books

Following the successful launch of the CATAN Puzzle Book last year, Welbeck Publishing Group and Asmodee Entertainment are releasing two further titles based on some of Asmodee’s best-known gaming brands. This new collaboration will see both Days of Wonder’s Ticket to Ride and Space Cowboy’s Unlock! titles join CATAN in Welbeck’s range of board game-inspired puzzle books.

Ticket to Ride is the award-winning game of cross-country train adventure, with more than 12 million copies sold worldwide. The Ticket to Ride Puzzle Book takes readers on a narrative trip across the world; along the way, the reader will have to solve 100 puzzles in order to complete the journey successfully, collecting train tickets along the way. Written by experienced puzzle writer and board game designer Richard Wolfrik Galland, the book combines the classic board game’s artwork with all-new thematic puzzles.

Unlock! is a cooperative card game inspired by the hugely popular escape rooms phenomenon. The Unlock! Escape Adventure Puzzle Book provides a new way to enjoy the popular Unlock! Escape Adventure series by translating the game onto the page to create an engaging and interactive escape room-style experience. Three fan-favourite scenarios are included within the book, including the popular Squeek and Sausage scenario featuring Professor Noside. The Unlock! Escape Adventures Puzzle Book is written by Jason Ward, a celebrated entertainment writer and puzzle creator.

Both the Ticket to Ride Puzzle Book and the Unlock! Escape Adventure Puzzle Book will be released in the UK on 28 October and will be available wherever books are sold.
