A great game of strategic train line building, cash flow balance, and luck.

My brother has this game and it's really cool. We adjust the rules a bit in terms of the upgraded trains, but other than that, we pretty much play it "as is". It's fun and involves strategy, but isn't overly complicated or hard to figure out.

Amazing game. The first game was with 6 players, and my only complaint in the 5 hour game was that the lack of a catch up mechanism made the winner fairly obvious about halfway through. Definitely need to play this more with different numbers of players!

My rating might change with further play, but it is definitely a solid game. There's a lot to like about it and it's quite enjoyable. If you play any more than 3 players, downtime might become an issue with newer players.

"The original crayon game. The map seems pretty challenging, with wide-open spaces but quite a few mountains and rivers. Enjoyable, but not my favorite of the series. I won't play any of the full CR games with more than 2p, because they take 60 minutes per experienced player."

What I like:
- Familiar geography makes it really easy to find cities
- Latest edition has nicely colored cards and goods chits

What I don't like:
- I wish the dots were farther apart
- The goods chits are single-sided
- The cards are nowhere near as functional as Empire Express

I thought I would enjoy this more than I did. Maybe it was just my opening hand, but the map felt pretty punishing at first. In the end, however, I did OK with my Mexico/Midwest focus.

Best with 2p, or solo (just track your turns on the board itself, and try to win in as few turns as possible). At 60 minutes per experienced player, and 90 minutes per inexperienced player, it's just too long with more players.

My love of crayon rails seems to have faded a bit.

It's as easy as 1 - 2 - 3.

What a surprisingly fun game! I was really intimidated by the map and odd mechanics at first, but it is uniquely fun! Highly recommend!
