Product Description

The Railways of the World Event Deck adds entertaining layers of complexity to the basic Railways of the World game and all of its expansions. In Railways of the World, players build a track between cities and develop faster locomotives to deliver a limited supply of goods to those cities in an effort to become the most successful “Rail Baron”.

Adding the Event Deck to any of the games in the series is easy. Just create space for these card stacks near the game board—Event Deck, Future Event, Current Event and a Discard Pile.

The Event Deck provides many interesting options and more cards than players can use during a single game, so the deck never feels repetitive. Players can build their own custom decks: from a vicious deck filled with negative events to a more prosperous deck filled with positive events. The deck can also be tweaked for each of the expansion maps and there are even 4 blank cards for those who wish to create cards of their own. Intrigued? Don’t wait; get started with this new twist on your old favorite today!

Adding spice to my favourite train game!
May 31, 2012

New for 2011 is this expansion to the Railways of the World board game, an Event Deck. This is a small expansion that can be used with the base game or with any of the other expansion maps. It consists of a deck of 50 cards, which introduce different random events to the game. Some of these are short-term objectives which will help you, but occasionally there are disasters which will hurt you - just like in real life. Fortunately in most cases you get a turn warning about the next event, so you can plan accordingly. There's nothing game-changing here, but consider it to be extra spice for fans looking to add something new to the game.
