Ambition and a thirst for wealth have driven humanity to strive for ever greater progress. In America, during the 19th century, battles were waged between huge railway corporations that sought to connect state to state and coast with coast… making themselves filthy rich in the process.
Railroad Revolution drops you straight into the middle of these tempestuous years; a time that changed America forever.

In Railroad Revolution, you will manage your own railroad company, ruthlessly competing to be the most powerful railroad tycoon across all America.
You will build railroads, establish stations in your connected cities, expand the network of telegraph lines, and chase your objectives, increasing the value of your company with every action you take.

You start with mainly a team of non-specialized workers, but during the game you can hire additional ones with specific skill sets. The cost or effect of an action is determined by the type of worker that does it.

To complete your company objectives, you will have to remove some of your workers from your active pool, promoting them to managerial positions.

You must carefully assign each of your workers to perform the right action at the right time in order to exploit their specializations in the best way. You need to decide which ones to promote and which are instead still needed to take actions, as your priorities will change from turn to turn.

Railroad Revolution is a fast paced game with relatively simple rules, and it provides you with interesting and challenging decisions. Having a good strategy and finding the correct timing to implement it, is the key to winning the game.

    Railroad Revolution ne surprendra pas les amateurs de What’s Your Game ? et de Zhanguo.  Ses multiples façons de scorer permettent pas mal de stratégies différentes même si réaliser certains objectifs est primordial pour la victoire et vous dirige un peu trop dans vos actions.  Zhanguo m’avait bluffé dans ses objectifs contradictoires, on ne retrouve pas cette opposition dans Railroad Revolution, du moins, pas autant.  Si on fait abstraction du plateau un peu trop moche, Railroad Revolution est une petite pépite qui se savoure tout on long de la partie grâce aux multiples choix auxquels vous devrez faire face, aux stratégies différentes que vous pourrez suivre et aux combinaisons impressionnantes que vous allez pouvoir réaliser.   Ces combinaisons se réalisent grâce à des ouvrières de couleur qui se combinent à certaines actions auxiliaires et grâce aux multiples bonus différents gagnés au travers d’une multitude d’actions et d’endroits où vous les réalisez.  Railroad Revolution n’est pas une révolution mais ne nous fixe pas trop sur des rails et la liberté d’action s’offre à nous pour notre plus grand plaisir.

    Bref, une fois encore What's Your Game tape dans le mille avec Railroad Révolution en proposant un jeu complet et à la difficulté raisonnable pour des durées de partie d'environ 90mn, en conservant l'ADN de leur maison d'édition (des illustrations reconnaissables entre mille, un jeu aux multiples voies stratégiques, des choix cornéliens permanents). Je ne peux que vous conseiller de vous asseoir autour d'une table et de participer à cette nouvelle Révolution industrielle.

    Après ZhanGuo qui nous avait vraiment emballé, Marco Canetta et Stefania Niccolini reviennent chez What's your Game ? avec un jeu d'optimisation qui sans être vraiment novateur, se révèle particulièrement prenant, même s'il est un peu faible au niveau interaction.

    Testé au club vendredi, excellent jeu avec des stratégies variées qui rendent difficiles l'estimation de la position de chacun. Impossible de tout faire et difficile de ne pas se diversifier um minimum, le choix est toujours et frustrant et crucial. Du très bon et en plus fluide et relativement simple à appréhender.

    Un excellent jeu. Les différentes actions secondaires associées aux 4 principales rendent le jeu très complet. La réflexion sera légère par moments et soutenue à d'autres (surtout en fin de partie où vous manquerez de tout). Pour les joueurs un peu experts c'est un vrai bijou ludique !

    Chaque partie procure un superbe défi de combos et d'organisation de son jeu. Pas de vrai interaction directe, mais l'essentiel n'est pas là. encore un grand What's your game qui pousse à recommencer encore et encore....

    Between this and Andrew Pfsisters new design for Essen the Great Western Trail I was not sure which would be my favourite med/ hvy euro this year...but honestly, they are both awesome games The Great Western Trail probably just edges in front for me ...although this game is full of awesome decision making for less rules learning ...brilliant component quality which is usual for this heavy game publisher ...I own all their games to date and none have ever disappointed ...not as heavy as some of their games but not as lite as others ...so it would be best describe as a medium - heavy weight Euro...
