Product Description

Based on the award-winning Empire Builder railbuilding game, Eurorails allows you to amass fortune and power by picking up commodities from cities that produce them and delivering them to cities that need them. The more efficient the rail lines you build, the larger your fortune becomes.

Use the erasable crayons to lay track between major European cities and use the European Currenct unit (ECu) as money to purchase your routes. The coated gameboard lets you draw routes between the cities and then wipe the board clean after every game.

Eurorails has one basic rule: you spend money to make money, and if you can't deliver on your demands, you can't make money. So build carefully and make each mile count.

My favourite game ever
February 19, 2007

A friend showed up at my door about 10 years ago and said he wanted me to try a new board game. It did not take long for my friends to get hooked on this game. We would play at least 2 times a week. The best thing about the game is that it is never the same game twice. Some strategy is required but it is not strenuous or tedious. The game is long enough that if your luck is not going very well you have time to recover. Using crayons lets you entertain your inner child but seriously, the game playing surface is ingenious. A laminated board of Europe, geographically correct, and you own a freight moving company in the form of a train. You are provided with 3 cards with a total of 9 contracts to fulfill. Stated on each card is a city, commodity wanted and how much will be paid for delivery. As you build your initial train track you re use it and obtain profit to build more track, upgrade you train or just gain more money to reach your goal of 250,000 ECU (European Currency Unit(s)). It is worth the money and you will have yours of fun. My friends and I actually had to buy a new game because we wore it out! Hope you enjoy.

The best-balanced rail game -- fun, but long
July 17, 2004

This is the best-balanced of the three Mayfair 'Empire Builder' train games I've played (the others are the original North America-set 'Empire Builder' and 'India Rails' -- the latter is not recommended.) Over many games I've seen people win after starting or doing their first major growth just about anywhere on the board. A simple and fun game. Not everyone sees the thrills of aspiring to deliver Italian marble to London by rail, but more often than not this is a game in which non-gamers, both male and female, can get excited and be competitive.

The only problems with the game are that it can get a bit long, and there is a whole lot of counting and recounting of little dots involved, especially with new players. Overall, however, a wonderful game.

If only I didn't need to sleep.
April 19, 2003

I bought a copy of Eurorails from Funagain and it arrived in the mail yesterday. My wife and I set it up after work and played. And played. And played. Nine hours later we decided to call it a night, only it was the next morning. The game is simple to learn, compelling, well-made, fun, educational (I now know where Napoli is) and even though we only got 1 hour of sleep last night we are still calling each other and talking about how we are going to do better next time we play. This is our first foray into the empire builder series, so I can't compare it to the others, but just on its own merits this is a great game. I strongly recommend this game.
