A speculative railroad game of building track, moving goods, and
buying shares for 2-5 players for about an hour.
During the building of the transcontinental railroad the owners of
the Union Pacific Railroad Company set themselves up as the owners
of a construction company – The Credit Mobilier. They proceeded
to award themselves fat contracts, paid for by the U. S. Congress, to
construct their own railway. In this game four fictional railways race
to construct track and move goods westward while the players invest
in the railways and the Credit Mobilier.
