In 1846, 3-5 tycoons compete to earn money and build the best stock portfolio by investing in and operating railroads within the midwestern United States. Play proceeds by alternating stock rounds with pairs of operating rounds. In stock rounds, players invest in and trade shares in the various railroads. During operating rounds, the President (majority stock holder) of each railroad directs it to build track and to buy and operate trains, possibly paying some or all of its earnings as dividends to its shareholders. Both investment actions by players and dividend payments affect a railroad’s stock price. Trains are grouped into phases, all trains in one phase being bought before any of the next. Once the first train in a new group is bought, the game phase advances, affecting various game aspects. The game ends after the bank runs out of money. Players then total their cash on hand and their final stock values. The player with the highest total wins!
