It took 3 plays to convince me (kind of captain slow I know ). In the first play I haven't read the rules and we played based only in a friend explanation (we miss 1 or 2 rules), so my first rate was a 6.5

In the second play, and after reading the rules I've looked at it and start seeing some beautiful and yet simple and efective mechanics. My rate went up to a very solid 7.5 since I hadn't found one suitable strategy.

On my 3rd play it went straight to an 8.5 and into my personal TOP 10.

The theme is very interesting and for a euro it fits very well in both canal and rail periods of the game.

4th play - Still very impressed!

After more than 100 plays online it really divides my heart with Age of Steam. Bravo Mr. Wallace! Bravo!

When did this overtext thing happen? Am I supposed to think of something clever to put here?

Favorite design from Wallace. A good mix between hand management (that can lead to unexpected path of victory), tactical and strategic placement and the usual dealing with money. The idea about the money spent, that influence turn order the turn after is very good!

Great theme, good game, though not quite as elegant as AoS. Rules are a bit fiddly, especially when you play it the first time. But I have the strong feeling, that it will definitely work better with more plays. Rating may go up then as well.

Edited after some dozend plays: Belongs to my top-five games!

It still is THE economy game.

After 15 face to face plays and many plays online, this has become my favorite boardgame. I originally rated this a 9 due to a poor rulebook, but I've decided to overlook it. It's a heavy game, not for casual gamers, but has tremendous replay value.

I've played this twice and it is my favourite Martin Wallace game. Excellent tension, difficult choices, superb.

An economic game that suddenly twists into a rail game in the second half. Brutally tough, incredibly fun. Only a fiddly ruleset keeps it from a 10, but who knows what the future brings?

Update: It's a 10 now.

Heavy game very hard. The game-mechanism is perfect.
Wonderful economic theme but the components are very ugly. Best 2007 game.
