Capstone Games has announced a new addition to the Iron Rail series called Ride the Rails!
According to Capstone: In Ride the Rails, you will invest in railroad companies, build railway track across America, and deliver passengers to as many cities as possible. Each of the 6 game rounds features 3 phases:
- Take a Share: each player must take any 1 locomotive from the available supply of Railroad companies as a share of that Railroad.
- Build Railroad Track: each player may build Railroad track in companies that they own at least one share.
- Ride the Rails: each player transports a Passenger to a city, paying dividends (points) to all shareholders.
- Each round, a new Railroad company is introduced to the game, and each Railroad company has its own special placement rules! Deliver passengers to as many cities as possible to earn the most points. Be cautious in your travels, as shareholders of Railroads that you use will also earn points!
Also being release will be a new double-sided game board featuring France on one side and Germany on the other. This expansion board adds some new rules for each map. The expansion map will be released alongside Ride the Rails on July 1, 2020 with a suggested retail price of $19.99. Head over to Capstone Games for more info.
