one for the road ... the railroad ...

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! Who will be the first to connect his cities? Is it Casey, who was the first to build through the mountains to the west? Or Annie, who was the one who best made use of the others' tracks?

A quick playing event for the rest of us on get away day while the lucky ones play in their Final matches. Trans America is the simplest of the train games at WBC. Trans Europa can be played instead with unanimous consent of all players in each group.


Ewan McNay will host a Juniors version for those 12 and under in the Heritage room on Wednesday at 9 AM. See http://www.boardgamers.org/yearbkex/jnrpge.htm
