This was our first game of Stephenson's Rocket in 2006. We rediscover this game last year. Today, we had a 3 players game with Mario, Martin and Pierre.
Mario started the green line and was able to place some of his stations. At the same time Pierre also move the green line and had a great number of shares since Mario had to spend most of his to connect his stations or the cities. Martin decided to start the yellow line but Mario directed it to the south and it was merged into the green by his friend Mario The green line paid Mario several times (thanks to help from Pierre) and he had a big lead over us. Martin tried to start the grey , the blue , the orange and the purple but Mario directed all of them in uninteresting places so other players could not place their stations or merge them in the green line. At the end green line had the most important network and it paid Mario.
As usual we all enjoyed the game. Stephenson's Rocket is one of the first game we learn several years ago and it's still one of our favorite. Lot of thinking, no dice, control of your destinyt, that's our style of game.
