Trains deserve a lot more recognition and praise than they seem to get around here. As our only viable alternative to the famine and disease buckets that we call horse-drawn carriages, it is the mighty train that will usher in our collective dream of Manifest Destiny.
I did really terribly while playing this game. Seriously, I lost by like a hundred points. It was probably a bad idea to constantly burn turns on grabbing wildcards to finish off specific tracks. It was also probably a bad idea to never defensively place any trains to obstruct others' paths. Oh well!
