'Railroad Rivals', the most recent brain-child of Glenn Drover, appears today on Kickstarter.

“If 'Railroad Tycoon' and 'Carcassonne' had a baby, it might look something like 'Railroad Rivals,'” said Lance Myxter, a board game reviewer known as ‘The Undead Viking’ who had early access to the design.

“'Railroad Rivals' is a fast-play, tile drafting and laying game where all players build a railroad empire that stretches across America… and across your table,” explained Glenn Drover, the designer, and co-founder at Forbidden Games.

Drover went on to say that, “While playing 'Railroad Rivals,' cities are connected via the twelve great railroads that stretched across America, while simultaneously building each player's stock portfolio. Players will use those railroads to make deliveries, resulting in driving up the price of stocks. At the end of the game, the player that has run the most profitable railroad while also owning the most valuable stocks will become the greatest of all of the 'Railroad Rivals!'”

The stunning artwork in the game was created by a team of artists and designers that included Mark Page and Brian Kesinger, two Disney artists. 

'Railroad Rivals' will launch on Kickstarter on March 20!
