This is really two separate games---with and without Mexico---but I love both of them (and I own three slightly different games all called "Empire Builder".)

Fun game that happily accepts variants. We sometimes play that you can buy a second train. Not sure I'd like it with more than 3 players unless they were very fast players.

One of the best railroad games out there as well as an excellent three player game.

Due to the time it takes to play, it is really for serious gamers, but it's never the same game twice. I love train games and this is the best and easiest to learn.

First played this in 2002 and was immediately hooked. I love the whole route-building and delivery system. I wish it could be shorter with more than 3 players, but since I rarely play with more than 2 (at 2 hours) that is not really a problem. My wife likes the fact that I cannot interfere very much with what she is doing. At any rate, this is my favorite of the series. She prefers Australian. As for the luck of the draw element--it's kind of like Acquire to me, I don't get it, but the same couple of people always seem to win. I think it is the same with Empire Builder, the good players always seem to get good cards just like the good Acquire players always seem to have the tiles they need. At any rate, this is one that I'll be playing for a long time

I own the original version of this (USA/Canada only) I got it at a yard sale for 50 cents (Score!). It was missing many pieces, and the rules, but I managed to create my own replacements, and we've played this game at least 20 times. I thought I would want to get the expanded version with Central America, and all the original pieces someday, but I think I'd rather get a different Rails game instead.

This game is easy to learn (and to teach). Also, it is fun drawing with crayons. While there is a random aspect of the game in the cards, after that it is simply a matter of planning and optimizing routes, building rails and running the trains in the most optimal way. This is one of the games that I almost always win.

This is one I would never sell unless I was truly desperate.

Have nearly worn this game out. Have worn out more than one set of crayons with it. Developed a great 2 player game that uses all of the card. The wife loves the base game for 2 players. The multi player game is very different from the 2 player one in how it plays. This is them mark of a good game to me.

This is the one that turned me into a true boardgame geek. I'll forever be grateful...but I'm sure my wallet will not.
