LUSH GREEN EDITION EXPANSIONS

Railroad Ink Challenge - Lush Green Expansions

The Lush Green Edition includes 2 unique expansions,
the Forest Expansion and the Trail Expansion.

Forest Expansion (2 dice)

Usage: OPTIONAL

Rounds: 6

The Forest dice contain faces with routes + trees (straights and curves for both highways and railways) or faces with trees only. You can draw faces with only trees anywhere on your board, but if the face also shows a route, you need to follow the regular building rules (i.e., you must connect these routes to pre-existing ones).
At the end of the game, you will score points for each space contained in your biggest group of orthogonally adjacent spaces with trees inside (with or without routes).

This group of Forest spaces marked in green would be worth 6 points at the end of the game.

Trail Expansion (2 dice)

Usage: OPTIONAL

Rounds: 6

The Forest dice contain

The Trail dice contain faces with all basic kinds of routes (straights, curves, t-junctions) + trails. You must follow the regular building rules when drawing the Trail dice (i.e., you must connect that face to a pre-existing route OR trail).
Differently from routes, which always go through the middle of the side of a space, trails go through the corners of a space instead (this simple fact changes the game quite a bit already)! When you have a trail that ends in the corner of a space with a Station inside (no matter if you drew the trail or the Station first), the trail “automatically” connects to the Station.

At the end of the game, you will have created a sort of “parallel” network system connecting your Stations by trails. Each of these “Trail networks” will allow you to score points depending on the number of Stations that it connects (half of the points granted by an equally big regular network of Exits).

This “network” of 4 Stations connected by trails would be worth 6 points at the end of the game.
