Description Edit | History

The peaks of Snowdonia rise before you, encased in mist, their summits barely visible. The highest is Snowdon (Wyddfa) herself at 1,085 metres. The year is 1894, and the Snowdon Mountain Tramroad and Hotels Company Limited has been formed to build a branch line from Llanberis to the summit. You can scarcely believe it's possible!

In Snowdonia players represent work gangs providing labour for the construction of the Snowdon Mountain Railway. Unlike other train games you will have to excavate your way up a mountain side, as well as make and lay the track, construct viaducts and stations. All this in competition with the weather of the Welsh mountains (and the game itself)!

You may be assisted by a train (though that's not always best) and you'll be able to collect essential materials from the Stock Yard. You will obtain special work contracts that give you bonuses.

Can you contribute more than the other players to the magnificence of the Snowdon Mountain Railway?

15 Modular board for Snowdonia (1P-2P)
Modular board for 1 and 2 Players (A3 size – half the size of the original board). [3 Files : 1 Modular board for base game, 2 Overlays for expansions]. THIS FILE : Overlay setup to play with JungFrauBahn and Mount Washington expansion. For further information, read comment below.

21 Small board for Snowdonia (solo or 2P)
The original board is very elegant. However, when playing solo or 2P, it's possible to save some space on the table with a smaller one. This redesign is half the size of the original board. The overall size is A3 = 42x29,7cm, i.e. approximately 16x11 inches. For a new and modular version, see this file : https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/115594/modular-board-snowdonia-1p-2p
