From the ramparts of Edinburgh to the docks of Constantinople, from the dusty alleys of Pamplona to the frozen platforms of the great station of Saint Petersburg, the Adventurers of Rail Europe take you on a discovery of 1900s Europe.
More than a new map, this version incorporates new roads (tunnels and ferries), and new game pieces, stations. New large format playing cards complete this first class treatment. It’s a new gaming experience across early 20th century Europe.
New material: * A map of Europe in 1900, and corresponding destination tickets. * New maps, larger, compatible with the first version, and with new illustrations. * New rooms: the stations * A new number of access card in order to be able to play online, with of course very soon the online version of the Adventurers of Rail Europe.
Rules change: * Long destination tickets are now given to each player at the start of the game. There are 6. If the players decide not to keep these tickets, then they are removed from the game for the remainder of the game. * Ferries: Crossing the seas surrounding Europe comes at a cost. Each ferry requires at least the use of a locomotive card, as shown on the rails. * Tunnels: Mountains are traversed quickly as long as you go through the tunnels. Venturing into a tunnel is risky. When trying to go through a tunnel, the player first plays the number of cards of the required suit. Then he turns over the top three cards from the top of the Wagon card deck. For each card thus revealed which is the color of the cards used to cross the tunnel, the player must now add a new Wagon card of the same color. Once these have been played, the player can take possession of the tunnel. * Stations: This is first of all a new piece of the game but also another possible action on your turn. Each station can be built on a city, to be able to use, at the end of the game , the line of an opposing player in order to achieve his destinations. Stations are very useful when you get completely stuck, especially on the map of Europe, which is more difficult than the first American version. However, each station not used gives its owner 4 points at the end of the game.
