RULEBOOK

THE GAME

Railroad Ink Challenge Expansions - Engineer Pack

In the multiplayer puzzle game Railroad Ink™, your goal is to connect as many exits on your board as possible.
Each round, a set of dice are rolled in the middle of the table, determining which kind of road and railway routes are available to all players.

The Engineer Expansion Pack contains 4 single-die unique expansions:

  • Renovation (1 die)
  • Special (1 die)
  • Construction (1 die)
  • Separation (1 die)

Use the special dice of the Engineer Expansion in addition to or in place of your regular Route dice to change the core foundations of the game. Modify pre-existing routes and add more connections to them with the Renovation Expansion! Build Special Routes in a whole new way with the Special Expansion! Perform special actions and restructure your networks with the Construction Expansion! Increase the challenge of your games with the tricky Separation Expansion and its never-connecting routes!

Note: at least one core set of Railroad Ink™ or Railroad Ink Challenge™ is required to use this expansion pack.

Railroad Ink - Engineer Expansion: Renovation dieSometimes you just plan badly. But now, with the Renovation Expansion, you have the possibility to make it even worse. With the Renovation die you can add features to your existing Routes and create new Route configurations.

Usage: MANDATORY
Difficulty: Easy

Railroad Ink - Engineer Expansion: Special dieBuild bigger Networks with the Special die. This die is not added to the pool: instead it replaces one of the basic “white“ Route dice of your choice. Please note that, when combining expansions, you can’t sacrifice the result of the Special die to trigger special effects (like avoiding the Sun result in the Desert Expansion).

Usage: OPTIONAL
Difficulty: Medium
Rounds: 7

Railroad Ink - Engineer Expansion: Construction dieNewly acquired machinery is opening up a great variety of new options: move or destroy already placed Routes. And thanks to the building permits, place a Route wherever you want.  At any time during the round, you may choose to use the effect shown on the Construction die, but you can use it only once per round! The Construction die has 3 types of effects:

  • Destroy: Erase an already-drawn space (even if it was drawn this round) from your board.
  • Move: Choose an already-drawn space (even if it was drawn this round), erase it, and draw it again in another legal location (you have to respect the normal placement rules).
  • Free Placement: You may draw one of the Routes for the current round without having to connect it to a pre-existing Route.

Railroad Ink - Engineer Expansion: Separation dieMake your life as a city planner a hell on earth with the Separation die! This die is not added to the pool: instead it replaces one of the basic “white“ Route dice of your choice.
