November 8, 2021 – Space Cowboys announced a new entry in their Unlock Series, a Ticket To Ride, Pandemic and Mysterium Escape Room Board Game. This is synergy at its finest, bringing some of parent company Asmodee’s best brands and game franchises. Others in the past have had names like Adventure, Escape and Mystery. This version will be aptly titled “Game Adventure,” so meta.
Ticket to Ride is from Days of Wonder, Pandemic comes from Z-Man Games, Mysterium comes from Libellud and The Unlock escape room series comes from Space Cowboys. Asmodee has been acquiring these publishers over the last few years and this is one of the biggest moves in bringing them all together.
