Only one of us had ever played this before, so we got all kinds of rules confused and plain wrong. Now that I've looked on BGG since, I think we can fix much of it. I've asked for the Detroit "3" sticker.

Paul explained the game to myself (Chris), Karen and Theresa; I won the first auction, and got myself a nice start between Toronto and Detroit, with Chicago by turn 3. Paul did a few early engine upgrades, and I think that helped him the most, as he was either tied or leading in income for the entire game after that. Paul & Karen both built in the West, while Theresa & I concentrated on the east.

No point giving the final scores, as we messed up the scoring. Paul won easily, though.

I like the potential in this game, but it is a very long game. It is also overly complex, I think, with the goods charts, but I can see that being fun for strategic types, planning WAAAAY ahead.

Never thought to get ratings; I'll do that next time. My guess, though, would be as follows:

Paul - 8
Chris - 7
Theresa - 6
Karen - 5

Game time: about 3.5 hours!
