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 stock prices. You will attempt to influence the stock prices by directing where the tracks should be built, and acquiring more shares to exploit the difference.
Mini Rails is a game that distills the essence of the Train Game genre into an exciting one hour experience. There are only 2 available actions, "Buy Shares" and "Build Tracks", in this game, and you must carefully decide how best to use them.
Each action must be taken exactly once per round, and depending on the company you choose to invest in, your turn order will also be affected.
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!
