RAILROAD REVOLUTION (What’s Your Game?/Pegasus Spiele, 2 to 4 players, ages 12 and up, 45-95 minutes; $60)
There is something about railroads. Somehow, they seem to capture the imagination of people all around the world. Maybe it’s because they conjure up an adventurous time in history or maybe it’s just the thrill of discovering what is just beyond the next curve of the road. But whatever it is, there is no question that railroads command interest and when you add to that fascination the expansion of 19th century America when rails linked the eastern half of the United States to its western counterpart, then you really have something. And, when it comes to games, what you really have is this design from Marco Canetta and Stefania Niccolini: Railroad Revolution.
