Railways Through Time is my newest expansion for the RotW series. The theme is a playful new twist for the series that also allows players to customize their playing experience. Veteran RotW players will appreciate the limitless scoring opportunities the modular design allows for. Enjoy!

We really love the tycoon series and play a lot of 2 player. This expansion rocks the interaction to a higher level. Nothing is safe. Openes up new stategies like like controlling access to certain colors and sneaking behind other players cities and robbing um blind This is a huge surprise - it will get more attention as a sleeper hit.

4.1.12 I like how this map scales to the number of players. I also enjoy how it tries to promote engine upgrades. Bouncing goods to various time zone is a lot of fun and trying to get the most of your engine is a nice addition. I do wish you had the 'leader' cards with hidden agendas.

A terrific expansion to an already great game, and it adds a much-welcomed balance to the maps (you choose as many as you need for the number of players involved). The time-travel theme is perhaps a bit silly, but still awesome as playing around with the space/time continuum is inherently fun. Everything is laid-out so nice here, that it's admittedly hard to go back to the "normal" maps.

I love being able to play with a different set of maps each time. This may be the best railways map expansion for 2 (better than Mexico). Conflict galore.

My favorite version in this series. The 6 boards (use one more than the number of players) allows for a nice variety.

RotW expansion with a twist: time travel. Players can deliver goods between different eras on eight different boards, using a selection of maps depending on the number of players. Retains enough of the original to be enjoyable, and adds enough new elements to be a fun and different experience.

One 2-player play rating. Subject to change.

The connections are easy and I definitely feel this could use tycoon cards to add a bit more uncertainty, but it's still dynamic. The low amounts of cubes, routing networks to allow long loops, and possibilities for stealing keep it tense. The little additive major lines are really not a factor. I think maybe the points should be upped to make them more enticing...

Really enjoyed it. Want to play with 4 or 5 players, but it will blow your mind. The non-linear networks make it hard to keep your mind around all the possibilities. May lead to too much thinking and long turns. We'll see.

A Railways of the World Expansion, this expansion has you building train networks through time to deliver goods to different locations in different periods of Earth’s history.

Honestly, my first impression on seeing this game was that one of my favorite game systems jumped the shark. However it turns out that, despite the crazy idea of building train networks through time, the game is quite good and retains the core tactics & strategies of the classic Railways gameplay while offering its own twists. Most importantly it does this with very few new rules to learn if you already know the base game.

My one complaint about this expansion is the lack of Baron cards or an equivalent secret mission per player. I miss the suspense of not knowing the winner for certain in a close game until the Baron cards are revealed. That being said, like the base game, it is still a great game that rewards skillful play. Also, despite its quirky theme, it is a good expansion for new players since the high connectivity always allows for easily bringing more cities into your network if needed which means you always have affordable options for expansion.

I actually prefer this over the base game. The time portals make for a very interesting dynamic that changes the base game enough to make it quite interesting, but still maintains the base mechanics.

The rulebook needs some work, and there's a lot of confusion on the first play, but the potential for this one comes in its scale-ability. Since you add boards with players, you can easily see this one going from two to six players very well.

I'm not a huge 'railroads' fan, but I really like this expansion the best of all the base and variant maps I have seen. The only possible drawback for some is that it adds a little more 'brain burner' to the mix due to the increased number of possible city pairings. Overall, I think this was a great idea to breath some new life into a game by changing more than just the topography. (And, as a disclaimer, I was fortunate enough to be able to play test this game)

Interesting game! The Time Portals allow tremendous connectivity, which gives opportunity for very creative play. But this also makes it nearly impossible to predict what your opponents will do. It's a more chaotic game than the usual RotW fare, which I'm sure will please some people and alienate others. It's a good two-player version of RotW, too.

I won my first game by a tiny tie-breaker: equal VPs, but my opponent had seven links and I had seven and a half!

Very nice expansion, a bit different game than usual Railways/RRT, but in a good way. Time & space warp gives so many options that players get by with quite low loans. I like how the play area scales with number of players!

Very interesting map and I liked it better than its Age of Steam counterpart ('Time Traveler').
Clean rules, increased (but _not_ overwhelming) possibilities for creative moves. An accessible and friendly map in these respects.
The scalability is great - you just add/remove boards according to the number of players. So no problems like when you have 5 players and Rails of Europe or 3 players and Railways of Western US at your disposal...

On the downside:
- no baron cards
- no ridges are present on the boards - although they are mentioned in the rules and on the cards!
- Tunnel Engineer card became really weak: no aforementioned ridges and very small no. of mountains on the boards

I like the ideal of the game but not sure I like all the different rule changes.Still not really sold on the auction system for turn order as in the games in the series it might only be worth paying anything to go first as going second or third may not really help you at all.The boards are very nicely done though.
