Description
 

Railways of the World (10th Anniversary Edition) is the new edition of the base game for Eagle Games' popular Railways of the World series, first published as Railroad Tycoon in 2005. It re-implements the original game with several improvements.

Revisit the early days of the Age of Steam as you begin with a locomotive (the venerable John Bull, the first locomotive to run in North America) and a vision (your Tycoon "mission" card). From there, build your budding railroad network into a vast empire. Connect New York to Chicago, earn the most money, develop bigger and faster locomotives and maybe even span North America and build the Transcontinental Railway!

Multiple expansions featuring different maps are available. Railways of the World is the new base game for the system and includes the engine placards, railroad tiles, train tokens, money, bonds, and other items that are needed in almost all the Railways of the World series. A game board depicting the eastern half of the United States is included in the base game, as well as a mounted map of Mexico!

3 of 5 Game is pretty, rulebook is garbage. February 27, 2019
Reviewer: Jason from Los Angeles  
I got this off Kickstarter in the big campaign. When we finally went to play it, the rulebook had so many errors, mistakes and problems, we couldn't even get the game setup, let alone play it.

Luckily I went to Board Game Geek, and was able to find a rules compendium there that answered everything we needed.

That is worse, is that the rulebook says to come here, to find the updated rules... nowhere to be found. Not linked on the games page, not in the FAQ or help files... I have no idea where to find the updated rules.
