Product Description

Who will become the first Rail Baron of England?

Mid-19th century England... the tramways that first appeared to transport coal have since been upgraded to railways. Numerous different companies using different railway gauges connected to villages, towns and cities across the country. Eventually the small companies were merged into the Big Four.

This new expansion has two sets of rules. The first set of rules follows the gameplay of the Railways of the World series. The second set of rules is a brand new game from Martin Wallace that features a new share system and economic engine that builds upon the Railways of the World engine.

A 2-for-1 deal that includes a new Martin Wallace train game
May 30, 2012
Railways of England and Wales offers another alternative map for the Railways of the World base game. This one is particularly great for 3-4 players, just like Railways of Europe map. But unlike Railways of Europe, the gameplay on the England map isn't quite as unforgiving, because cities are located closer together, meaning that the costs of building links are cheaper. While the Eastern US map has 52 cities and the Europe map only has 31, the England map has 44 cities, and offers a more intermediate experience. The bonus of this expansion is that it also comes with extra components for an optional "Advanced" game by Martin Wallace that introduces a share system, similar to the 18xx series. The Advanced game has received mixed responses, and takes the game in a very different direction, because you no longer have your own colour, but buy shares in companies that other players also control, and may even have an interest in several different companies at the same time. This adds several new points of interest to the Railways of the World base game, such as paying dividends, variable share prices, and the potential for mergers, which all add new layers of complexity. But even if you never play the Advanced game, this expansion is worthwhile simply for another great map to use in the series, especially if you don't have the full complement of 5 or 6 players.
