    Does this exist places that aren't the Xbox or smart phones?

    Because this is the second time I've heard of it and I've had a soft spot for trains ever since I was a wee laddie.

    there's a physical version of it yeah

    if you've played settlers of catan it's kind of like someone made an entire game out of just the road-building portion of it

    it is a board game

    technically you can play against AIs but yes it is basically multiplayer only


    you're given a map of the united states and canada (there's DLC for a Europe map), and you're given a couple random cities. The goal is to build railroads to connect the cities. You get points for every section of track you lay down, as well as points for doing a connection, based on how far apart the cities are. Phoenix to Portland is worth 11 but New York to Seattle is worth 23, for instance. If you have any incomplete connections at the end of the game, you take their point value as a penalty. Whoever has the longest railroad gets a bonus ten points. Most points wins.

    that sounds oddly like Settlers of Catan

    yeah like I said a few posts up it's kind of like if they took settlers of catan and stripped out the development cards, towns, and cities, and made road-building a little more complex to compensate

    like I agree that the interactions are fucking cool and great

    but the stamina is just constantly present and plays such a huge role that I think you'll end up finding it detracts from your experience
