A delightful and classic family board game. In this railway adventure, you’ll need to be the quickest to link up your cities and reach your destinations.
Players collect cards of various types of train cars that enable them to claim railway routes connecting cities throughout North America. The longer the routes, the more points they earn. Additional points come to those who can fulfill their Destination Tickets by connecting two distant cities, and to the player who builds the longest continuous railway.
