New lands have opened up and the race is on to create the best network of rail and road lines through it. In Railroad Ink, players roll the Route dice and must then draw the subsequent results on their individual Route boards. Players score points for having long interconnected Routes, as well as connecting the entry points to their board, plus having Routes through the center of their boards. But beware, they'll lose points for leaving unfinished lines. It's a challenge to keep their roads and rails from getting destroyed, and having to repair them when they are. Or, players can combine the two for epic, 12-player games! The Blazing Red Edition challenges players with falling Meteors and erupting Volcanoes. Can players keep their Routes together amid all the carnage?

  • charming relatively short game that's playable everywhere and keeps you busy. 3 variations in one box to spice up the gameplay and easy to learn.
  • Thinky and spatial roll n write. Have not tried expansion.
  • Feels very similar to the other roll n write games I've played. Decent fun that doesn't take very long and has some decision making.
  • Played at Spiel 2018, was quite good. Would like to play again.

#Railroad Ink: Blazing Red
4p, first time, family with kids aged 7 and 10.
Loved this chill game that comes with 3 variations within one box.
A pity a regular game only takes 7 turns but it is the ideal number to make you go "hmmmm I -NEED- this..." :)
Components work great, the artstyle was appreciated by all and we laughed when mommy had to put the dice on her map to "see" what the combination were while the 7yo and 10yo had no issues. Didn't win, didn't care; 100% escapism!

 

I'd probably say #Railroad Ink: Blazing Red. It's a game I used to own but have given it away to another friend. That's a little telling though, haha. It was hard to think of because I essentially keep every game I really enjoy and play but still aggressively keep a small collection at home.

Railroad Ink was just one of those games that I did enjoy but no longer play and didn't see myself playing anymore. Same with #Azul. However, I'd still put Railroad Ink above that since I'm pretty much burnt out on Azul.

I’ve got 2 games that work well outside

Both are great games and work well with wind because the components are large and heavier.

This week I played Railroad Ink: Blazing Red with some friends at a retreat.

I'd recommend Dominion 2nd Edition. It's a great game to dive into for any player type but has a lot of strategy and replay-ability.

Some others I'd recommend are 

The only one I have that can be played solo is Railroad Ink: Blazing Red right now. I'm hoping to get Spirit Island one day though since I've heard good things.

This game is so great. I've got the Railroad Ink: Blazing Red edition and I've played it a whole bunch with people I'm trying to get into gaming recently and it's been a hit!

I just got Skull and Railroad Ink: Blazing Red which have both been fantastic for 6 players. My local target had a clearance on Ice Cool which I recommend for 4 player quick games too.
