Product Description

Beer and Pretzels have been a favorite combo for game players around the world. Now you can experience Steam and Age of Steam in a relaxed, Beer & Pretzels style game experience where there are no silly euro-style victory points. Simply, the player with the most money wins! The home of "real" American Beer and Pretzels is in Pennsylvania Dutch Country (the South Eastern part of the state). Beer & Pretzels is for 3-6 players, and contains the following special unique features.

No Victory Points: This isn't a euro game, it's a beer and pretzels game!

No income track or shares: Math is way too hard as it is, but thinking about math during gameplay is just wrong.

Instant cash on deliveries: You deliver a good, and you get cash. Right then.

No expenses: You deal with the reality of expenses every day when you're not playing games... why bring that nastiness to the game table? You never pay expenses for your locomotive (and there aren't shares/negative incomes either).

Most Money Wins: This part *is* just like real life.

No player elimination or bankruptcy: Both are not fun, so neither has a place in this game.

Players: 3-6

Optimal Number of Players: 5
