Description Edit | History

South African Railroads is an economic railroad building gamer's game. Players bid for stock in the six available rail lines and construct track, represented by cubes. The player with the most money wins.

South African Railroads is an extensive re-development of Pampas Railroads' sister game, Veld Railroads. The game board of South African Railroads is twice as big and uses cubes, not crayons. All unnecessary historical chrome has been removed, but the game still features the unique Action Selection mechanism found in the original Veld Railroads. Gone are the ledger sheets for bookkeeping, the luck and all the special case historical restrictions. The play time has dropped from two hours to 40 minutes. This game has been categorized as "unforgiving" or "brutal".

Veld Railroads
