About this game

In Railroad Ink Challenge, you have 7 rounds to make as many points as possible. Roll the dice and draw the routes to connect the exits around your board. Expand your network with railways, highways, and stations to collect points, but you will be penalized for any open connections, so plan carefully! Play solo to improve your best score, or challenge players from all over the world!

HOW TO PLAY

Each round you will have to roll the dice and use the available routes to build your transportation network and connect as many exits as possible. Expand your network to collect points. You’ll also score bonus points for your longest highway and railway, for building into the central spaces of your map, and for completing optional, time-dependent goals before they expire.
You can also connect special structures to your network to trigger their special effects, such as duplicating routes, unlocking powerful special routes, and more. But beware: Try to not leave any open connections, as each one will cost you points at the end of the game.

EXPANSIONS

Forest and Desert expansions add special dice and rules to create even more intricate landscapes for your highways and railways.

A very good solo game (it's solitaire style) with a bunch of variety. The base game comes with a bunch of alternative boards to switch things up but the game unfortunately does not have a random option for which board to use. No actual ads in the game, just links to the physical games.

Hey do you like Cartography & board games, then this is probably an instant buy. Yes it's cartography lite but its meant to be a fast experience. But don't let that fast experience fool you. Tons of depth to be found here, with more elaborate online challenges. Basically you roll the dice with various roads and rails printed on them some featuring stops, t-sections, curves, etc. and your basic objective is to hook up the exits, but it's more than just that. Worth the price of admission!

I own the physical version of this game as well. This is a fantastic implementation of that same game. However the tutorial is broken and we can't proceed past placing the first railroad, i had to pull out the physical manual to help teach it. Also, every time I start the app is stays loading on a white screen, I need to hit back 3 times and then I'm allowed to play but only in offline mode. This app needs some work it's one of the best board game apps visually and mechanically.
