Having said that, our household has created a hack for all of our Rails games that would solves a lot of the other reviewer's problems. We bought a piece of 1/8" thick plexiglass (cut to the size of the board, which is standard for all of our versions so far) and a pack of dry-erase markers to use instead of drawing rails directly on the board- it's easier and keeps the playing surface pristine.
My wife had never played these, so I introduced her to EuroRails - and now we have crayon game cravings. She loves Empire Builder particularly - it has a great balance of luck and strategy without making a specific play method most optimal. This is unlike EuroRails, which has a few play moves that are effectively mandatory - and if you don't do them (or don't do them at the right time) you effectively cannot win.
We play two-player, two-players -- we both run two train lines independent of each other. Makes for a longer, and more interesting, game. Always great fun, and a good way to spend a cold, or very warm, evening.
Cons: current version of the game replaces the plastic tokens with cardboard punch outs (includes a note apologizing for the downgraded tokens), stock crayons aren't of the highest quality.
Pros: everything else.
The lack of plastic chips is a little disappointing, but doesn't take away from the game at all. I recommend also picking up an 8 pack of the crayola crayons to go with the game. They seem to work better and don't break as easily.
