Cover of American rails: a classic US steam locomotive on a trestle bridgeAmerican Rails

The game may be about US railroads, but the aim is to have the most money. First, players must invest in railroad companies by buying shares. As shareholders they can expand the company's network of lines across North America. However, this costs money, so they will need to get cash into the company as well. Connecting to cities increases the company's income and can decrease other companies' income. Finally, this income is paid out to the shareholders. Of course, if a company is doing well, other players will want to buy some shares, reducing each share's dividend and giving them the opportunity to develop the company differently...

On top of this, there is a clever mechanism for taking actions that means turn order can change during a round. Hence, it's not just enough to take the action you want, you have to consider whether this will let you take the next action you want. This may sound complex, but the rulebook is just four pages long: brilliant.

For 3-5 players, aged 14+, playing time 90 minutes: 27.00 (22.50 without tax outside the EU)
