You are living in the heyday of the locomotive. You are Jay Gould. And you have just added another railroad to your vast empire. Flushed with success, you nor retire to the sartorial splendor of your very own Pullman Palace Car. The dream ends. You awaken to reality with the thought..."just another fantasy." Ahh, but for the grace of Avalon Hill, your dream continues.Here - In RAIL BARON - you become a latter day Gould, or a Cornelius Vanderbilt, or any of those menacingly infamous moguls whose wizardry and acumen established the criteria for which business success was to be judged in decades to come.RAIL BARON is played on a large board of the United States RR network. In fact, it comes in three separate boards. Laid end to end it spells out America and portrays the 28 major rail lines and major cities they connected during the halcyon days of railroading.You start with $20,000 - and a train. You make money on trips from city to city. Pretty soon you've got enough money to build up your empire (you can buy the B&O and C&O for just $44,000). More holdings bring more money your way (track rental) from your opponents.With many new nuances of strategy, it became a game where fortunes see-saw until the last rail baron is bankrupt - or has accumulated the $200,000 needed to win.All this may take w3 to 4 hours. But it's great fun for 3 to 6 people ages 10 & Up.The Game Includes:
