Description

This highly acclaimed game of railway building and share speculation is set in Germany. Each player learns what it is like to be a shareholder in railroad companies and aims at being the wealthiest player at the end of the game. Players that become directors of companies can manipulate their railroads, making their companies stronger and themselves rich-two things that do not always coincide.

In 1835, the length of the railway system throughout Germany was a respectable six kilometers. Today's network consists of a good ten thousand times more.

1835 -- Move by move, the players open up the country, laying tracks and building stations. The track system expands by leaps ands bounds while locomotives spout great clouds of steam. The boom begins with corporations sprouting like mushrooms. Private railway companies build, the government takes a piece of the action, and director's positions change hands. Trains are sold at give-away prices, returns on investments plunge and new trains promise new profits.
