Sheer genius of game design. An absolutely brilliant approach to utilizing the physicality of the board game. Manipulating the strings is incredibly engaging. The game is a shining example of elegance, too: String Railway allows very intricate (while still accessible to anyone) strategic and tactical manipulations with only a couple of paragraphs of rules governing them – the intricacy is in the physicality which is perfectly intuitive. From the design perspective – one of the best board games in existence!

This game is tiny! I was expecting a bigger box. However, the box is packed full of fun and joy. Amazing. I love the game.

The two-player game is surprisingly good.

Enthusiastic.

All reality is a game. Physics at its most fundamental, the very fabric of our universe, results directly from the interaction of certain fairly simple rules, and chance; the same description may be applied to the best, most elegant and both intellec

Light, fun, fast, and an interesting mess of a "board" by the time you're finished.

I love this game. It tickles all the right parts of my brain. It's so much fun to figure out the best way to maximize points, and it's neat to see the "board" at the end of the game, sprawling across the table.

It's not the most intellectually challenging game, nor the most emotionally stimulating game, nor does its theme light (normal) people up with a desire to play - but it's a game you play with string, and that novelty will charm the pants off of a lot of people. I'm not saying you're soulless if you don't adore this game, but you might want to double-check anyhow.

4-3-2011 8.5>8.7 In 2p, this actually becomes an involved game of calculation, as you try to keep one of your opponent's players down. A fascinating game that actually requires you to think spatially in a new way, accompanied by the typical elements of basic arithmetic, looking a move or two ahead and a sprinkling of luck.

A fun game that I could probably enjoy over and over.

Unique experience. Rules aren't clear cut (in terms of station-touching and accidental string-shifting) but in a light-hearted game this doesn't really matter.

There's definitely some strategy to explore here and it's almost the perfect filler!

This has been a wow game for me. I enjoy how the game looks at the finish. The rules are pretty straight forward and the scoring has been tight.

This game is surprisingly more cut-throat and aggressive than I thought one could ever be while playing with string.

Draw and place a station card. Place your railway string and get points for the stations you touch. That's the rules in under 100 characters!

Cool toyish train game where you place strings on tthe table to represent your train lines. Stations are small tiles which you try to connect with the strings, and they're worth a various amount of points and may have a player (company) limit. As the strings move a bit, this can't be played extremely competitively, but it's a very cool game.

Home made version using mason tiles with labels applied plus different colored shoe strings.

Played once two player. Wow. What a fun game that can have its tactical moments. Very functional game that is quite different than your typical Euro, train game. String is where it's at.

ASL ... yes, this is my Desert Island Game. If I have to give up all my 3000+ games and only allowed to keep one, this would be it. This bloody game stood the test of time. Around for more than 25 years - simply the best.

I love the simplicity of the physical mechanics. You lay pieces of string according to a set of simple rules, however as the game progresses the playing area gets tighter and tighter. I think this is a brilliant game.
