Railways Express is a race around the USA, and parts of Southern Canada and Northen Mexico. Up to 4 players choose a railroad line, designated by colour, and are assigned a starting city. The object of the game is to link all four cities of your colour. To do this you will lay track according to what you roll on 2 Terrain dice and 2 Track dice. Like the base game of Railways of the World from which Railways Express is derived, you must lay curved and straight track through various types of terrain including Plains, Water, and Mountains. Linking to citiess will award you re-roll cubes (and possibly cards as well) which will give you strategic options as to which cities you need to link and thus what routes you need to plan.
Railways Express is a stand-alone game.
