Edition: Mayfair 1988

Condition: Game has been verified as complete and is in very good condition except for 2 cards that have been damaged by dried rubber bands. One is a train card that still has the rubber band stuck to the back and the other is a delivery card that is damaged from removing the dried rubber band (picture available upon request). This should not impact game play though. Also, one or two crayons are broken but any crayon will suffice. Little wear to the play money from storage (note: currently, the play money is stored under the insert). Original instruction booklets are present. Box has light storage wear and the previous owner wrote their last name on the box top (in marker) but overall box is in good shape. Plastic box insert/storage tray is also present

Shipping: Free to any US State/MPO/Etc

I've been looking for crayon rails games for a while. This was still there after my third trip, so I figured it was meant to be.

First edition with the lead trains. I saw this the first time around, but it was pretty beat up. I decided to get it this time. it is well played for sure, but complete. This is the only one from this list that my wife showed any interest in. She's a Ticket to Ride fan ready for the next level

Actually, she just mentioned she's also interested in Russian Rails, India Rails and Silverton. Lucky me!

I'm a fan of all the crayon rail games, but this was my first one. I realize they're still in print, but I'm still playing the ones I bought in the late 80's and early 90's. I'm considering buying the modern versions of British Rails, Nippon Rails, and Australian Rails to get the stiff boards, rather than the roll-up boards I have now.

We do play with Crayola dry erase crayons rather than those in the games, though, since most of the old ones are worn down too far or broken.

Found this version of Empire Builder this morning. $7.99 plus tax, with an ominous "As is" tag. Looked decent inside though. I'm thinking all the lose chips might have scared them into putting that on there.

EDIT: Complete and looks unplayed for the most part.

Lastly, this 'player's copy' of Empire Builder. Contents very good, box has no broken corners, but was purchased with tape wrapped around the box. I have not removed the tape for fear of damaging box further.

Still, if you can get past the box condition...

Starting Bid $10

(Also, Eurorails, Iron Dragon, and other crayon rail games that are all more or less the same with different maps)

This family of games are slow and long, but still interesting. It's the only non-legacy game I know of that involves literally writing on the game board. (with crayons, which wipe off) You build track by connecting dots on this big map in your color crayon. You use this track run your train between various cities, picking up goods and delivering them to other cities to satisfy your demand cards and earn money.

It's an interesting optimization exercise between drawing directly to cities for which you have demands (and their suppliers) and drawing "main lines" that will be more generally useful. Dealing with the geography is also a challenge, as mountains and other difficult terrain will cost more to cross. You also can't build along a connection that another player already drew, so there's often a race of sorts to be the first to build optimal track lest you be forced to get longer and/or more expensive track later.
