    Easy rules, hard decisions
    This unassuming game gives rise to a huge number of tactical decisions. Players accumulate stock and participate in building up the railroads’ city portfolios. There is plenty of player interaction, and the rules are simple. This reprint has one-sided paper money (to facilitate hidden cash) and symbols for the color-blind. It also plays quickly. A first-rate release!
