There hasn't been much activity for this game at all recently and I haven't run this by John so I'm only posting partial images but I reskinned my copy of GM&O so it is a bit more pretty and slightly more functional.

Three major improvements/suggestions.

- RR cards: These show a mini version of the map with the starting cities highlighted similar to Ticket To Ride. This has made this much easier to find RR's. Starting RR's and VP bonuses are on the upper left. I also used a bar denoting presidential/common stock - this allows it to be tucked similar to 18xx. The one thing I want to do perhaps with the bar is put the RR's short name in place.



- Map: I shrunk the hexes slightly and moved the VP track lower.





-Income Track: I added an income track which should make distributing dividends much easier. Every time a stock is acquired, adjust.



With permission and/or popular consensus I will post or work out an arrangement with John.


Thank you.

Yeah, a minimap on the cards would make things much easier.

I had a chance to try this last weekend and it worked well.

The income track helped out immensely as did the cards. The map was mostly cosmetic but made the game a lot more approachable for my group.

Reception was positive. My brother complained it made no sense that railroads would block the way that they do in the game. I told him either make a game, says its land rights or play something else. :-)

Can't wait to get this gem back to the table again.

Sorry to resurrect this but were you ever able to get permission to upload the files?
