Looks like a decent price.

Good catch!

But between 1830, Ticket to Ride, and Robber Barons, I have enough rail and market games

Are the rules available anywhere? I am interested in the theme, but would like to get a glance at the rules before I buy

Queen games website takes you here for rules PDF download - http://www.queen-games.de/service.aspx?Id=3 - but it seems to only be the Saxony card rules, which is what is in the BGG files section.

Winsome games website - http://www.fyi.net/~winsome/ - gives a yahoo group to join if you want rules downloads - http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/WinsomeGames/

Other than that, there's a Drive through review by Joel Eddy, which I usually fine a good guide, boot on seeing the game/components, and on getting a detailed summary of what he liked/disliked about it, with the reasons - http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/65519/item/2488413#item248...

Or just the reviews section of the games forum has 2 written reviews - http://boardgamegeek.com/forum/6129/locomotive-werks/reviews

That's a weird one to pop up, I'd never heard of it before. The camel shows it was normally £29 from Amazon but has been ticking down 50p a day or so since March. So if you wait a few months, they'll pay you to take it away.

The comments are quite mixed, it seems to be a gamers game despite the dice.

Thanks a lot for the info. I had checked QG website but somehow that page is wrong (with no place to download rules, etc...). Registering on yahoo takes ages, so I guess I will go with the video!

Go back to the Queen site, click on Service on the top menu bar. Then click on Downloads, on the right menu bar (quite small), then click on Strategy Games, then scroll down and click on Locomotive Werks, then finally, click on the flag for the English PDF.

Thanks for the link. Unfortunately it is only for the Saxonia expansion (it This is the link that Damien gave). So I am still on the search. I contacted Nikki from Queen Games, but thanks anyway!

As I said above, the pdf they have linked is just the saxony card explanation, not the full game.

Hi Ste,

Great minds think alike. I ordered mine on Monday for £20 with Prime free delivery. It came yesterday and looks good.

Hopefully I'll get to play it with you sometime

Got mine at £17.55 with free super saver delivery.

Many thanks to the OP for the heads up.

If I'd paid full price for this I'd have been mightily disappointed, as it's a big box but mostly filled with air, a board, some dice and cards.
