In anticipation of my first game of TTR with the Monster expansion this weekend, I must mention the new contest being put on by Days of Wonder (contest details here). They are giving away 10,000 bucks to the person who designs the best TTR board for the upcoming expansions due out the end of this year. To be honest, I probably won't bother designing a board for the contest, I'm just excited about NEW TICKET TO RIDE BOARDS IN OCTOBER!!!!!! WOOHOO!!!!
