This Spring, Capstone Games will release the second title in their Iron Rail series of 18xx games. In Ride the Rails, players will aim to invest in companies, build rails, and transport passengers across the U.S.A. The game is for three to five players, ages 12+, plays in around 60 minutes, and will carry an MSRP of $39.99 when it pulls into your station in June.
The station is jam-packed full of excited people ready to ride the rails. Mason is off to Chicago, Ashley to Denver, and Hunter is going all the way to San Francisco. The train arrives, and passengers start detraining the sleeper cars with the red-caped porters expertly loading their luggage onto the baggage carts. Enthusiastic travelers crowd the doors, anxiously anticipating their adventure cruising across America in style!
In Ride the Rails, you will invest in railroad companies, build railway track across the United States, and deliver passengers to as many cities as possible. 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!
