2 plays (1 proto, 4er; 1 2er)

This is Ticket to Ride meets TransAmerica meets some other railroad game. You've got the easy track building of TA combined with the route building / connection game of Ticket to Ride. The removing-track-tile thing reminds me of Last Train to Wensleydale -- great little game with a similar theme: players are little guys, building little railroad companies and then selling them off to the large corporations. In Wensleydale, though, the track stays put -- it just changes color. It is a little weird, here, that tracks just pop right off the board!

Good game, though probably better with more than just 2. The production is also good, except:
- the track sticks are a wee bit too big for the board (once you have a lot of sticks near each other, anyway).
- the diagonal banners for city names are weirdly distracting. They're also too small to read easily. I would prefer something more like TA, maybe (I don't remember having trouble seeing city names there)? Or maybe just a slightly bigger board?

--- Summary ---
Setup:
- Reveal 3 random bonus cards (each will be awarded to first player to meet condition on card).
- Shuffle the company cards, give 4/player, 4 on display face up; rest in deck. All show cities to connect by track, and VP value.
- Shuffle each deck of region cards 1-8 separately. Give each player 2 1s and 2 2s; each keeps one of each, discarding the other. These also show cities to connect by track.
- Each player gets _ cubes

Your Turn:
1. MUST: Either place 1-3 track sticks (your own color) ANYWHERE on the board, or pick up 1-3 of your track sticks.
2. MAY: Score either a regional or a company card, if you've connected all cities shown on card. May use other players' tracks (pay them 1 cube per stick used), but must use at least one of your own.
- Regional: draw 2 cards from the next highest region you've not had yet, keep one. Must be completed in order 1->8
- Company: remove all YOUR tracks used for that card from the board. Draw a replacement (from 4 face up, or deck)

Game End:
- End of round when any player has built 8 Regional or 8 Company cards.
- Score VP for:
... completed company cards
... 1/cube
... bonus cards earned
... number of regional cards completed (chart on board)
- Most VP wins! Tiebreaker = more company/regional cards

Enjoyed the game. I thought it was nicely balanced and simple to teach and play. Would have preferred a larger map. The printing of cities is small and the track laying often covers them up. Bland graphic design, could have done more art on cards.

2 plays - still interested. I like the track rules - the regional track endures the company track dissolves. I have no idea what this is simulating, but it makes for some interesting game situations.

TA mixed with TtR but with some other items added. It was quite good as it was very tense as people pushed to end game. The track was a touch long but not all that big a deal. I really liked that the companies were actual train companies (logo included). Nice touch.
