We are playing 18xx games. Come and join us on Thursdays to build railways. We have some well-practised players and have set up an email group. Boardgamegeek says:
Last Thursday we saw String Railway being played for the first time. It was published in 2009. Railway games are always popular at
String Railway is a unique train game that consists of colored strings, tokens, station tiles, and a board for scoring. To set up, first place the string tied in a big circle on the table to establish the field area for the game. Next, place a small circle of string to represent mountains and a line of string to represent a river. Finally, place the main stations for each player equal distances apart from one another.
On a turn, you draw and place a station tile, then try to place a railroad string between your stations in an effort to connect them in order to form your own train network. Connected stations earn victory points (VPs).
