RULEBOOK

THE GAME

Railroad Ink Challenge Expansions - Futuristic 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 Futuristic Expansion Pack contains 3 unique expansions:

  • Super Connection (1 die)
  • City Builder (2 dice)
  • Alien Farmer (1 die)

Use “wild” routes to create huge networks with the Super-Connection Expansion! Gather resources and construct buildings to score extra points with the City Builder Expansion! Use UFOs to collect as many sheep as possible with the Alien Farmer Expansion!

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

Usage: MANDATORY

Railroad Ink - Futuristic Expansion: Superconnection dieThe Superconnection technology is a new and very efficient way to travel. Both cars and trains can be loaded on top of super-fast, magnetically suspended vehicles. Superconnections can be used to connect both Highways and Railways thanks to “Superstations” (drawn as a triangular shape).

At the end of the game, Superconnections will count towards both your Longest Highway and your Longest Railway.

Railroad Ink - Futuristic Expansion: City Builder dice

Gain money by pleasing investors and spend it to create futuristic buildings in your county. Investors are going to evaluate your conduct and give you money according to how well you followed their vision. You will then use that money to build your empire. Each round, you will be evaluated on the basis of the Income die and you’ll have the opportunity to build as many Buildings of the type displayed on the Building die as you can afford.

At the end of the game, you will gain points according to the number of Towers. Buildings can also remove Errors from your board: if a Route ends facing into a Building it will not be considered an Error.

Railroad Ink - Futuristic Expansion: Alien Farmer dieFarming—and especially wool production—has gotten a lot easier after the introduction of “abduction rays”. Manage your farms and UFOs and maximize your output of wool. UFOs can take wool from Sheep that are on the same row and/or column.

At the end of the game, you gain 2 points for each Sheep that a UFO can reach, and remember that a UFO can score a Sheep that was already scored by another UFO.
