Silverton is a game focusing primarily on the business aspects of railroading in the 1800s. The game components themselves are of varying quality. Along with the hundreds of plastic chips (to which stickers need to be applied) representing the various commodities, I also got a bag of wooden pieces. These include small discs representing surveyors and prospectors (and more stickers to apply!), small cubes to designate rail line ownership and commodity prices, a pair of dice, and a turn marker. Different cards represent commodity claims, passenger routes, and engines.

The board is made of pressed cardboard, and is probably adequate for the relatively light use the it will see. The four interlocking pieces cover most of Colorado and New Mexico, plus a small portion of Utah and a tiny corner of Texas and Wyoming.

The rulebook is well organized and clearly written. The Basic Game rules cover the first half of the book; Advanced and Optional rules and scenarios for one to five players fill the remaining pages.

Play itself is a recreation of the late 1800s railroading and mining boom in the Rocky Mountains. Depending on the scenario and number playing, players begin in one or more cities. The order in which players take their turns each round is determined by a random deal of cards. Surveyors must then be placed before a track segment can be purchased; if two players want to survey the same segment, the dice are rolled and, with small modifications, the high roll wins. Prospectors are then used to establish mining (or lumber) claims or to establish passenger routes. Players have the choice of choosing, but possibly fighting over, one of eight face-up claims or passenger routes, or drawing a claim card to which they will have exclusive rights.

Silverton is fun to play. It has a good balance between skill and luck. Players are generally rewarded for logical route planning. And it helps players understand how quickly some mines and rail routes were abandoned in the old west, and how prices have always had price swings.
While setting the game up the first time, we were critical of the small print on the map; however, we soon adjusted to it. Also, we found that the game plays somewhat differently with the luck of which mines are discovered in which order, which is good for repeated gaming.
The basic rules are easy enough to understand and remember after playing one game. We soon discarded the event cards and jail rules, which add little to the game. And we found the "short" game took us about the same amount of time as the "regular" game.
Be warned --> the advanced rules add a lot to the game, are for serious gamers, and should not be attempted with children. The full "campaign" game can be played using the basic rules.

A great game and extremely fun. Pretty difficult to learn though and there is a lot of repetitive actions. Be sure to get the free spreadsheet online to keep track of numbers, etc. Overall, a ton of fun though if you can find a group to play with,
