Product Description

Lookout Games' Railroad Barons – previously listed on BGN as Konzern – is an 18xx card game from designer Helmut Ohley, who is co-designer of another 2010 release from Lookout (Poseidon) and whose design history has consisted solely of 18xx titles to date. Railroad Barons breaks from the expected 18xx model by (1) playing in 45 minutes, (2) being for only two players, and (3) being a card game, although Lookout's Hanno Girke says that it plays much more like a board game. Here's a translated description of the game blurb from Lookout:

Railroad Barons belongs to the family of 18xx games, but raised to the meta-level. Individual companies are no longer the focus, with the businessmen trying to add more and more new railways to their portfolios – which is why Railroad Barons comes without a large game board and route tiles.

Girke says that Railroad Barons will be completely bilingual in English and German.
