RAILROAD INK (Horrible Games/CMON, 1 to 6 players, ages 8 and up, 20-30 minutes; $17.99)
The “roll and write” genre is having a moment, with dozens of titles releasing in recent months. One of the bigger splashes has been Railroad Ink designed by Hjalmar Hach & Lorenzo Silva. The game famously comes in two different versions — Blazing Red and Deep Blue — though they both contain the same base game and differ only in the set of expansion dice included. Railroad Ink made its debut at Gen Con 2018, quickly selling out each morning, and it has generated both buzz and critical claim in the intervening months.
