Trans-Siberian Railroad board game
Trans-Siberian Railroad board game

About

In the late 19th century, the Russian government commissioned a project to build a railroad that would connect Moscow in the west with Vladivostok in the east. The players in the game are competing to start railroads, build track and earn income all while extending their track network farther and farther east across the great expanse of Russia. Players must be careful that they keep the government happy or risk losing ownership of their railroads. The Tsar is not above taking over control of any railroad that falls too far behind! The player with the most money in cash and stock at the end of the game is the winner.

Trans-Siberian Railroad — one of three titles in Winsome Games 2015 Essen Set — shares some similarities with older Winsome titles where the rail network is already printed on the board and individual companies purchase the links that are printed.

There are six total companies in the game, though only four are available at the beginning. Once the initial stocks are auctioned, players take turns buying stock, building rails, or passing. Some actions cause the timing cube to move which in turns leads to dividend phases which is one of the end of game triggers. The two other companies become available during a later phase shift. The player with the most money at the end of the game wins.
