Just noticed in the version section of Rail Baron that Rio Grande Games is to be reprinting this under the original title Box Cars. (see Boxcars). According to this page: http://riograndegames.com/games.html?id=444 this is expected to release spring 2013, so here's hoping for 2014 ish?

If it gets the same treatment as Credit Mobilier, we'll be doing good to see it by 2016.

It states a one to two hour play time. How is that possible?

We have confirmed with the printer that we will have the first samples of BOXCARS at Gencon for play in the Rio Grande Games room and the TGA area.

I originally created a new version of Rail Baron with the Box Cars name, but I've now created a standalone game page for Box Cars due to the long history of Rail Baron and the changes that Rio Grande is talking about for this new edition. I can always merge the pages later should the games turn out to be more similar than different, but the promise of a shorter playing time would seem to tilt the scale toward different.

Update, July 29, 2013: RGG's Jay Tummelson has noted that the new edition of BOXCARS is effectively the original version of the game that was self-published by the designers, so I've now merged that new page with the listing for the original game.

El Caballero will be on display in Cafe Jay this summer at the WBC, along with Boxcars.
