The company claims that they invent the game. However, who will name their train game, "steel leader"? It makes me want to play "Go Fishing".

What IP? The law does little to protect games. Only recognizable art or text is protected.

There are often typos in Chinese products. Perhaps they meant to write "Steal Leader"? Would make more sense, at the cost of being obvious about it.


On the flipside, whereas TtR costs $50 MSRP, this probably will only go for half that price.

I saw some rule difference. It has enforced hand limit and award points for most cities connected.

I wish they'd go back to making Guccies, Calven Kliens, Roolex, and Georgia Armanhi.

AFAIK, they're still doing that, on top of their fine selection of Polu clothing.

On the plus side, if they're ripping off TtR, at least it shows how board games have elevated in status.

"STEAL LEADER"arrrh
The Chinese publisher announced STEAL LEADER is ORIGINAL.

Official description :
1、核心规则注重优化和平衡,与国外同类铁路题材游戏相比更加合理完善。
>1. The Main rule focus on balance and better play, much more then foreign games.

2、线路的设计基于中国版图和现实线路,以及未来铁路规划方案,使游戏更具有寓教于乐功能;
>2. The Rail way design based on the real one and future blueprint in china, that make the game much funner.

3、任务卡的设计基于数学模型,在抽取新任务卡的风险与收益之间做出优化。且达成任务的最佳线路分配平衡,没有明显的冷门和热门线路;
>3. Ticket card's design based on mathematics model, we made better balance between drew the new card and income from the card, Also we improved the design of rail way make it has no difference between pop way and unpopular one.

4、画面设计突出本土元素,基于现实车型,且全部为手绘完成;
>4. The Art part emphasized the local elements and handmade painting of trains on duty.

5、用料讲究,棋子为单独开模环保材料制作,卡牌采用过油、过塑技术,收纳采用铁盒,包装采用高级压纹过塑板材,在质量、耐用性等方面超过国外同类产品。
>5. We used best materials to product the elements in this game and the quality of those are much better than the similar products.

Thanks for the translation!

I have to admire the amount of over-the-top nationalism that comes out in Chinese made products. Looking at the games in my shelf made in the Western world versus China, I beg to differ with their opinions, however!

(though from what I understand, Chinese products made exclusively for Chinese consumption do actually tend to be made to a higher standard than what the rest of the world receives from China, but have no personal experience with this)
