Discover a modern European classic. Celebrate one of the world's most vital and enduring passions: railroads. Use your initial investment to build track. Then pick up commodities where they are grown, mined, or manufactured and deliver them to a lucrative place of demand. Complete a delivery and 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, Eurorails never grows old. You decide where to lay your tracks. Your only obstacles are rival tracks and Europe's great mountains, channels, and rivers. So, ignore the borders. Capture the industrial spirit of Europe and learn to build an empire. Whether you share Eurorails as an evening with friends or as a rainy day activity with your family, you'll always find it captivating!
Eurorails is geographically accurate. The game depicts Europe's rivers, plains, and mountains, as well as its natural resources. It's a great way to learn about the geography, business, shipping, and transportation of Europe while having loads of fun with friends or family!
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.
My husband and I have played Eurorails so much that we can complete a game in under an hour (average time 45-50 minutes). We also have Empire Builder but feel that it is less flexible and interesting. I would never have thought that I would like this game based on the description, but friends of ours introduced it to us, and we loved it from the very beginning. The best part is that it is fun to play, whether you win or lose. My husband is a hard-core gamer and I am most definitely not, but this is a great compromise game that we can both enjoy.
We were introduced to the game in the early 90's by a neighbor. All 5 of our now adult children love the game and when we get together for holidays we play just about the whole time we aren't eating. My oldest daughter and her husband want the game for Christmas so that they can introduce it to Fort Hood, where my son-in-law is stationed. More fun for teens and adults than younger kids.
