Rediscover a modern American classic that celebrates one of America's greatest loves: railroads. Use your initial investment to build track, pick up commodities where they are grown, mined, or manufactured and deliver them where there's a demand. When you complete a delivery, you make the money you need to buy larger, faster trains and expand your railroad empire. Win the game by building the most effective railroad empire!
With over a million variations, Empire Builder never grows old. Capure the entrepreneurial spirit of America and learn to build an empire.
Whether you share Empire Builder as an evening with friends or as a rainy day activity with your family, you'll always find it entertaining!
This is for those of you who have and play the game often...I don't know if anyone else does this, but our family bought a piece of plexiglass for $5 that fits the board and use the wet erase vis-a-vis markers to draw track and not the crayons provided. We played with crayons for a while, but it gets to be a hassle and the plexiglass keeps the game lasting much, much longer. Hope it helps.
Empire Builder is my favorite game of all time. I've probably played the game over 400 times, and the excitement hasn't worn off. There is just so much to consider, and each game is full of delicious decisions. Among good players, the outcome is often in doubt till the game is nearly over. We have about 800 games in our collection as this is being written, and Empire Builder is the very best of the bunch. CHOO CHOO!
Buy any game from the Empire Builder series and you will have happy guests. We play a game every weeks and I can tell you that this is the overall favorite game.
We have tried India Rail, Euro Rail, Japan Rail and Empire Builder.
Japan Rail is more suited for 2 or 3 players.
