Empire Builder is a classic crayon-rail game by Mayfair, with many followups now available. The core idea of Empire Builder is that players to draw their train routes over a map of the United States. Players start with enough money to build short lengths of track, and by running their trains and delivering loads to various cities acquire more cash to expand their networks.
Super Sadistic Advanced Empire Builder (SSAEB) is an improved and much more challenging version of the base game. Numerous changes have been made: the payoffs on the contract cards have been lowered, the event cards are changed to be much more challenging, two new train types are added, and upgrade costs are increased.
By modifying the basic Empire Builder game with this expansion set, players will have a more challenging and longer game, but one that is more satisfying for hard-core gamers. SSAEB is for die-hard Empire Builder fans only!
