Just noticed in the version section of Rail Baron that Rio Grande Games is to be reprinting this under the original title Box Cars. 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?

The game will be produced and shipped from Germany in early August. We will have the first games at Gencon for play in the Rio Grande games room and the TGA areas. We expect the game in stores in September.

I loved playing Rail Baron growing up and I can't wait to own my own copy of Box Cars once it's finally released!

The rules are based on the original BOXCARS games with some minor changes by Tom, which include some of the changes added by AH and some variants offered by both Tom and I. The UK map was designed by Tom.

I am so excited about this. I loved playing my friend's dad's old copy of Rail Baron and I've been reluctant to spend $100 on a used copy.

Will the UK map be included in the game or is it a separate addition or add-on?

The UK map is included. The map board is two-sided.

It is official. I have the first copies in my hands and will bring them to Gencon, so they will be available in the RGG rooms (235 & 236) and with the TGA.

The components are already posted in the picture of the back of the new box on the BGG game page. As per our policy, the rules will be added to our website when the game is released next month. Thanks

Sadly, I was at Gencon, when Mrs. Bromley found two glaring error on the map. They don't really change gameplay... you can still reach your destination on your railroad... it just takes longer. I hear that there will be new maps and the release will be later now... I'm still looking forward to the game because Great Britain is on the back of the map.

I have now learned the games are produced - with the changes - and have shipped from the printer. We expect them in our warehouse in about 3 weeks and will ship them to our distributors at that time.

Would it be possible to make the app available to Windows phone users, and PC/laptop users?

Well I guess that covers most folks. I guess I should have never bought a Windows phone and tablet. The apps in the Windows store are a lot less plentiful than Google and Apple stores.

We have been told the game will arrive early next week. We will ship immediately and expect the game will be in retail stores by the following Friday (November 8th).
