Chicago Express is an innovative railroad-building board game where the players are railroad executives vying for the maximum return on their investment. In the game four railroads drive from the East Coast across the growing eastern US to Chicago. Smaller, rapid-growing railroads spring up to further expand America's extensive system.
Set at the end of 19th century America, Chicago Express requires the players to make as much profit as possible by buying shares in thriving railway companies. There are three available options:
a). Auction a share
b). Develop a game field
c). Expand the route network
By means of these options, players can increase the value of their railway companies, thus increasing their profits too. The player who invests most skilfully and manages to generate the highest profits wins the game.
Chicago Express is a re-release of the limited edition game, Wabash Cannonball.
