This is a list of games in which it is possible, but not required, for one or more players to go bankrupt. Such a bankruptcy might end the game, but the game must be able to end in some other way.

As always, feel free to add!

My understanding is that it's possible for a player to go bankrupt by the second turn, eliminating them from the game. I've only played the kinder, friendlier, version myself.

Very excited to finally get my hands on this later this month, as I preordered it quite some time ago.


Like several other games in the series, a player can be forced into bankruptcy when they're President of a company when all their trains rust and there's no money-- in both the company and their personal holdings-- to cover the cost of the currently available trains. If I'm not mistaken, this ends the game this ends the game in 1830, and some other titles in the family. (If I am mistaken, please say so-- I'd much rather be corrected than wrong!)

Grand Cru may end in two ways:

1. A player pays off all their loans.
2. A player takes so many loans, they go bankrupt.

I've never seen the latter happen, but it's there.

Bankruptcy is a possibility here, but not a major setback. You just start with a new company and lose 1 victory token if you have any.
