So you're looking for a train game that's a step up from Ticket to Ride, without being too hardcore or complicated. Look no further: Railways of the World is your game. It is one of the best games I've ever played, and one of my all-time favourite medium-weight games. Nobody paid me or asked me to write this, by the way - I just love the game!

Don't make the mistake of thinking (as I first did after seeing photos of a massive board and incredible components) that this is just for middle-aged men who drive trains for a living and play with miniature railroads as a hobby, or that this is just for hardcore gamers who like complicated and heavy games, and that this game is not for you. Despite the glamorous and epic appearances, this is just another medium-weight game - only way better than most.

So if you're beyond gateway games, then you really owe it to yourself to consider making this one of your next steps into the world of gaming!



In this GeekList, I'll introduce you to the base game and its expansions, to help you get oriented with this great series. I've also reviewed every single expansion and game in the series, so I'll also include links to my reviews under each item.

If you've played the game, let us know which expansions are your favourites, and feel free to share your thoughts and impressions about the different family members of the Railways of the World series by commenting on the individual items on this list.
