      GameCon (Game 09) will be hosting a 40 player Ticket to Ride UK Nationals qualifying event on the 17th of October. This is part of a grander qualifying "rail" to the World Championships.

      The official details are:

      "The UK National Ticket to Ride Championship begins with a series of regional qualifier tournaments

      Tournament Format:

      Each regional qualifier will consist of three rounds: A qualifying round, a semi-final round, and a final round.

      The qualifying round of 3 games will include both Ticket to Ride and Ticket to Ride Europe. At the end of the qualifying round, players will be ranked and the top 8 to 12 players (depending on the number of entries) move on to the semi-final round.

      In the semi-final round, each player will play 2 games of the 1910 variant. The top 2 players move on to the final round.

      In the final round the 2 finalists play the original Ticket to Ride head-to-head, best 2 out of 3, to determine the winner.

      Prizes:

      The winner qualifies for the UK Championships to be held in April or May (exact date and venue to be determined). The winner also receives a gold-plated Ticket to Ride score marker.

      2nd place wins a silver score marker and serves as 1st alternate to go to the UK Championships if the winner is unable to go.

      3rd place wins a bronze score marker and serves as 2nd alternate to go to UK Championships if the winner is unable to go."
