So you're looking for a train game that's a step up from Ticket to Ride, without being too hardcore or complicated? Look no further: Railroad Tycoon is your game. It is one of the best games I've ever played, and one of my all-time favourite medium-weight games. One word of advice: the original Railroad Tycoon game from 2005 has since been improved and upgraded as a new edition, published under the name Railways of the World in 2009, and this new and improved edition is the one to get. It's the same game, but just has the benefit of some tweaks to the rules, as well as an additional map.

Both Railroad Tycoon and Railways of the World are fantastic. Don't make the mistake of thinking (as I first did after seeing photos of a massive board and incredible components) that this is just for middle-aged men who drive trains for a living and play with miniature railroads as a hobby, or that this is just for hardcore gamers who like complicated and heavy games, and that this game is not for you. Despite the glamorous and epic appearances, this is just another medium-weight game - only way better than most. The typical strategy gamer will find much to love about this series of games, not least that it is more thematic than many eurogames, and comes with gorgeous over-produced components, and offers substance beyond typical gateway games without taking on the complexity of heavy gamer's games.

So what's the appeal? First of all, Railroad Tycoon has an impressive pedigree, being the offspring of a Martin Wallace system that has proved most successful in Age of Steam, an ever-popular gamer's game from 2002.
