Here — in BAIL BARON — you become a latter day Gould, or a Cornelius Vanderbilt, or any of those menacingly infamous moguls whose wizardry and acumen established the criteria for which business success was to be judged in decades to come. ~ RAIL BARON is played on a Large board of the United States RR network. In fact, it comes in three separate boards. Laid end to end, it spells out America and portrays the 28 major rail lines and major cities they connected during the halcyon days of railroading. ~ You start with $20,000 — and a train. You make money on trips from city to, city. Pretty soon you've got enough money to build up your empire (you can buy the S&O and C&O for just $44,000). More holdings bring more money your way (track rental) from your opponents. ~ With many new nuances of strategy, it becomes a game where fortunes see-saw until the last rail baron is bankrupt — or has accumulated the $200,000 needed to win.
