Game added to database. A snafu regarding the designer has been reported and will, hopefully, be fixed shortly. (I picked Thomas Russell from the database, but it is really Tom. When asked to fix it, they fixed it to Tim. We'll get there...)

I've loaded some pix including what I hope will be the representative image.

I also played a solo three-player last night to see how it went. Answer: Fast! It is a very simple game - easy enough for young children - but with some depth. How much, I'm not sure. It seems that, when played seriously, there will be a build-up of investments followed by a rip of the zipper, getting them 'paid'. Repeat from Twin Cities to Seattle. Game over. The key seems to be getting the timing of the buildup right so that it doesn't rip before you are ready, taking the non-branching and (mostly) unidirectional Northern Pacific the 'wrong' way.
