Description Edit | History

In Yardmaster Express, two to five players compete to have the highest valued train after a set number of rounds. The game starts with the first player drafting a Railcar card from his hand, attaching it to his train, then passing the rest of his hand to the player to his left. This draft continues until all players have added one Railcar to their train for each round of the game. The trick is, while each new Railcar must match the resource type or value of the one previously played, players always have the option to play any card face down as a Wild Railcar; the Wild Railcars don't have much value, but they can be used to save a player in a bind or to thwart your opponents by "hiding" a card they need.

Yardmaster Express plays in ten minutes and consists of just 32 cards (no tokens, no cargo cards).

Yardmaster Express is the second game in Crash Games, Pub Series.

11 SoloPlay_YardmasterExpress_v1.pdf
File contains the rules to play Yardmaster Express in a solo environment. In this solo variant you will play against a different kind of AI. This AI will determine if you have a chance to score your game to gain victory or lose in trying. You will draft cards to keep the AI adding cards to its train for 15 turns while you try to build a train that will score you the best points. If at anytime you can not feed the AI's need for railcars or you can't keep your train together, you lose. Can you handle the pressure? Steam pressure that is. 10 new caboose goals have been included in this variant for the sole purpose of this variant. Performing well with a goal is the key to achieving a victory condition. Setup: seconds / Playtime: 10 minutes (maybe less) includes a scorecard...
