The Robber Baron Expansion contains new tiles, a new railroad, new wooden components, a sixth player color (green), and new rules that add new depth and strategy to Railroad Rivals.
The new Stock Shenanigans tiles allow players to engage in the same types of devious strategies that made the robber barons of history their fortunes.
Railroad Rivals is a tile drafting and laying game where you build a Railroad Empire that stretches across America…and across your table. While playing Railroad Rivals, you will connect cities via the twelve great railroads that stretched across America, while simultaneously building your stock portfolio. You’ll use those railroads to make deliveries, resulting in driving up the price of stocks. At the end of the game, if you have run the most profitable railroad while also owning the most valuable stocks, you’ll become the greatest of all of the Railroad Rivals!
**The Premium Edition upgrades the cardboard pieces to premium wooden pieces.
