October 20, 2021 – Welbeck Publishing and Asmodee have partnered to create puzzle books using Ticket To Ride and Unlock Escape Room Brands. Coming on the heels of an initial cross-promotion that brought one of Asmodee’s crowing brands, Catan, and the puzzle book knowhow of Welbeck, the two companies are extending their working relationship. These two new puzzle books are releasing on October 28th in the UK.
In October of 2020, “Catan Puzzle Book” was released. Inside are 100 original puzzles based on the wildly popular board game, providing a narrative adventure that allows you to discover the unsettled island of Catan. Alongside original artworks from CATAN, each puzzle contains its own pleasures and solving them allows you to win resources. Resources lead to victory points… and victory points lead to success.
Some reference puzzles to give you a better idea are below. The full book is available on Amazon.

Now that Catan is in the books (pun intended) and apparently has been doing well, it is some time for two new titles. The two companies had this jointly to say in a press release –
Welbeck Publishing Group and Asmodee Entertainment are pleased to announce the upcoming release of 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.
