UPDATE (March 2012): THIS IS NOW CLOSED - THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST!

Folks,

Would any of you be interested in play-testing some bits and pieces I'm putting together for the Network Edition of Paperclip Railways? If so, please drop me an email via tony@surprisedstaregames.co.uk

New bits include:
- new stations including a Geothermal Lab that can erupt as a volcano, an extra bit to the river and more things to do with blue cubes
- 'monuments' (obstacles you put into play for points and/or blocking)
- Metropolis stations - build over corners of the central Met board
- Mountain range - a new obstacle type to replace the basic obstacles
- Share Dealing: pay clips to buy shares in other players (almost) final position
- the Freight expansion (previously a ltd giveaway / print and play)

Hope to hear from (some of) you soon!

Happy New Year,
Tony

By "Network Edition" you do not mean an online playing site or anything like that?

Adam,

No - it's just I've added 60+ new stations and a series of ideas for add-ins!

That's possibly a separate game entirely..(I had a prototype that didn't QUITE work out - used paperclips but an entirely different mechanic system!)

Best,
Tony

Hmm, paperclips on the table and paperclips under the table, linked by little paperclip ladders?

Re: Network Edition - Playtesters wanted!
What's the release date for the new version? And does it include everything that has been in previous editions, or is it an expansion? I'm looking to grab a copy of this game, but I can't much tell the difference between the editions.

The plan is it will contain EVERYTHING so far PLUS lots of new goodies...no idea about release date yet - though remote playtesting has begun! Would hope to have some copies for Essen Spiel'12, though!

Best,
Tony

Now I have a nice box, I'm definitely only after an upgrade :)
