Module 6: Roads / Priority: 3 [flavor]

Just use the benefits of roads: Faster movement.
So I took out all the hindering rules for road building: Your/The road system has not be connected to your capital or other roads and if you build a road, you do not loose 1 worker, the unit is only exhausted.

Fun Fact:
Depending on the combination with the other modules it is important to figure out when and where it is useful to build roads. Sometimes players even believe not to build any road. This can be very good, but normally the winner has just built some roads somewhere, but normally not a complete road system. Roads are only flavor here and not that important.

Unplayed. Boards slightly bent, but nothing too bad [plus I can just bend them back into place]. Happy about this find...I always wanted to try a crayon rail game ever since I sold my thrifted copy of Eurorails before actually trying it out. Sadly, I wish it was a bit more colorful.

It's always nice to get this classic to the table. We had a gang of 6 players; there's not that many games that handle 6 well. Empire Builder does work with six but it makes for a long game. I started out on the west coast & locked up some of the better passes through the mountains. Of course this left me a bit crowded out in the east. I didn't take the win, but was in the top 3. The top player had started out in Kansas City and built a spider web rail system from there. I' was going for more of the circular style rail system, that often works well for me.

I went to the wal mart last night to grab some cola, but stopped at the Tooele DI first. Glad I did because this complete copy of Empire Builder that looks like it was rarely or never played was sitting on the shelf. I bought it for $2.

One of our party loves the iron horse, and he'd seen the actual Empire Builder while we were in Chicago. So to find this mayfair box nearby in a thrift store promising Goodwill was a souvenir to remember.

$3 of copper coinage were exchanged with the cheery clerk for the right to pack this into our shipboard game collection.

Velmar the Voracious quickly ate the long-bright wrapped candies. But he said that they weren't quite as good as the Irish candies, they had wax in them.

Unowned

The entire "crayon rails" family of games is unowned by me. I am tempted to get the Empire Express game, just to have one on hand.

Where's the fun? I have played a bit of British Rails in the past, and see the allure of the system. You need to read the demand and supply trends, find good road beds and build your network. Finding synergistic contracts will make the game a lot more fun.

But despite this being a pretty evocative theme with good adherence to theme, this game system doesn't grab me as much as many other games on the list. At least, not yet...

I always played games from when I was young (Clue, Monopoly, Globetrotters, Profit Farming). But when my cousin Adam brought this one to a family gathering I was hooked. I played it at a hectic pace for a few years, and added Eurorails and India Rails, until Adam brought this other game called Settlers once...the rest really is history.

Crayon Rail System and Line Drawing

I would argue that these aren't really mechanics. The same mental exercise can be performed using different components. Most of these are just route building games with a different vibe due to different components.

Some of these have "line drawing" listed to referring to drawing which I would place under the below noted "Performance/Concept Matching" mechanics.
