By comparison, my understanding is that Snowdonia is "lighter". But I've only played Russian Railroads. That being said, I am interested in trying Snowdonia. I suspect I will eventually own both, and recommend you find a way to eventually pickup both, if/when you can.

For me, Snowdonia was the best game of 2012. Whereas Russian Railroads would not even make my top ten of 2013. But these things are VERY subjective.

What I liked about Snowdonia included the way the game is endlessly variable, especially with the weather and the contracts, and the way that player interactin in terms of the order in which they do things is key to pulling off some real coups.

Whereas Russian Railroads seemed to me to not only lack variety from game game, but clearly had a limited number of successful paths through the one game I could manage to play. And I've not felt the need tolay it a second time.

As ever, YMMV.
