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. A very simple railway game. The player who can make the best use of the other players' networks is generally victorious.
