Description Edit | History

Additional designer: John Gordon

The game is about the building of the great trans-Canadian railway --and how to get rich from it! As play progresses, you buy land which you hope will lie along the completed railway; you also get to lay track sections. Once a complete link between the two oceans is established, the game is over and the land evaluated. Various random events spice up the flow of events, of course.

A neat game, playable in a very reasonable amount of time.

More Information Edit | History

In 2015 the game was redesigned by Tom Dalgliesh to create a more strategic version of the game by removing the dice-based elements. The new game was released under the same name and can be found here: The Last Spike
