Days of Wonder has just released a Halloween update to the iPad release of Ticket To Ride, adding new Halloween-themed screams (I mean screens), music and sounds. Conductor Jerry has been replaced with a wicked witch and two new mysterious achievements, “Ghost Catcher” and “Pumpkin Master” have been added to the game.
However, if you are one of the first three AppAddict readers to earn both these new Achievements, then you will win your very own “Halloween Freighter” train set for the physical Ticket To Ride boardgame. To figure out what you need to do, let’s just say…the Achievements screen might be a good place to start. 😉 Since the folks at Days of Wonder want these to remain cryptic, I can’t tell you exactly what you need to do to earn them (plus that just wouldn’t be as much fun, now would it?). However, here’s a little tip, “Ghost Catcher” is very easy to complete, “Pumpkin Master” will be a bit more difficult and requires a little skill and luck.
“We’ve made our two Halloween achievements devilishly tricky, but the rewards will be wicked fun for some of our more entombed players.” Said Dark Kaufmann, Vice Presi-dead of Macabre for Days of Wonder. “Fresh meat may not stand a ghost of a chance.”
What do you need to do to win the “Halloween Freighter” Train Set?
Once you’ve earned BOTH achievements, take a screenshot of the Achievements page by holding down the home and power buttons until you see a flash.
Email a copy of that screenshot to firstname.lastname@example.org and make sure to include “AppAddict” somewhere in your email, that way the folks at Days of Wonder can track which of our readers came in first. If you are successful, they please also let us know in the comments section below.
Even if you are not one of the first three to earn the achievements, don’t worry, you will still be rewarded with a special Jack-o’-lantern Avatar for use within the game.
