Mini Rails



It’s the Golden Age of railroads!  An age of steel and paper.

Railroad tracks are sprouting up all over the country.  Stock Certificates are selling like hot cakes.  You’ve already built your fortune but now it’s time to build something even more lasting: a reputation.

Players are wealthy investors speculating on the fortunes of local railroad companies, each attempting to increase their wealth by manipulating the stock market.  You will endeavor to influence the stock prices by directing where the tracks should be built, and acquiring more shares to exploit the difference.

Mini Rails distills the essence of the stock-buying and track-laying game genre into a tight experience that can be finished under an hour.

The game includes only two types of actions — “Buy Shares” and “Build Tracks — and you must carefully decide how to best use them. You must do each action exactly once per round, and which company you choose affects the turn order on the next round.

Can you construct the most lucrative route and outwit your friends on the volatile market?  Accumulate your wealth and cement your place in history as the ultimate Railroad Tycoon!
