Included in the box is a Saxonia train-card. But there are no rules included for this mini-expansion. Does anybody know where the rules can be found for this card?

I received the box yesterday. Included in the (huge) package as a bonus was a copy of New York, the re-theme of Alhambra.

Until know I have only opened the packet to check if the game is included.

Don't know the rules yet, but if no special rules are included the Saxiona will maybe work like the other trains and no special rules are necessary?

Have you already get in contact with Queen Games to solve the problem?

Hi there - did you had any luck finding the rules for this?

My best guess is that it is used to make the 5-player start like the 3-4 player start (start with less money, but with railroad). Likely goes to the player drawing the "5" position card, since it has the cheapest cost to increase production (1).

I too have this card included in my pack of train cards. Is this exclusive (for now) for Kickstarter backers and others will have to pay extra for the promo?

It was never advertised as such during the campaign.

Then I guess it wasn't much of a stretch reward to backers after all.

What did we get? A poster and a game most of us don't want (not even the one they told us we would get) and the opportunity to pay full price for some other Queen games.

I don't see myself backing too many more Queen Games Kickstarter projects in the future unless they offer some substantial incentives.

Actually strike that. It was. It was supposed to be a non-exclusive promotion that would not be included in the general release of the game, but that other folks could buy in the future.

I'm not bothered by other folks getting it early, though I am bothered by the negligence. Disappointing.

Any word on this?

I don't know about it being a consolation for the fifth player, as there are five trains you can develop at the start: The four passenger factories plus the first passenger train factories.

Saxonia
The Saxonia card is auctioned off before the start of the game. The highest bidder receives the
card.
Effects:
As long as the card is in the game (see below), its owner automatically is the start player in
the following game turns. The order of the other players is determined normally.
The Saxonia has an income and a production capacity of 1 each.
Its production capacity may not be increased; moreover, its production capacity may not be
transferred to more modern locomotives.
The Saxonia production is guaranteed each game turn independently of any die rolls.
The Saxonia is removed from the game when the first player purchases a second generation
green locomotive.

The rules for this card have (finally) been posted. Looks interesting!

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1016374822/locomotive-wo...#

Basically all the iconography on it except for the 1 thaler one has nothing to do with the rules, though. As far as I can tell it's just an auction for someone to get 1 thaler/turn & first player until the 2nd level green locos come out.
