All aboard that's coming aboard! Choose your engine and start building your very own railroad network across America. As you lay down your tracks, you must strategically decide how you are going to connect five undisclosed cities before anyone else. Tunnels and bridges require extra tracks, but connecting to someone else's hub will afford you a much broader playing field. Be careful, though. Whoever you connect to can take advantage of your network, too!

From the Manufacturer
America in the 19th century: railroads are booming. Pioneer spirit and vision are everywhere. Everyone wants to be the first to build a railroad network across the country. Each player has five cities and tries to connect them with a shared network of tracks. As soon as a player has done this, the round ends. The other players lose points. At the end of the game, the player who has the most points left is the winner. A very simple railway game. The player who can make the best use of the other players' networks is generally victorious.
