Riding the Rails ...

The Empire Builder Series tournament provides the opportunity to play several of Mayfair's "Crayon Rails" games. Empire Builder and Eurorails will be offered in each of the three preliminary heats. In addition, players may choose to play variants if their selection has a three- or four-player interest. Variants are: North American Rails, British Rails, India Rails, Australian Rails, Nippon Rails and Iron Dragon.

To encourage faster play, a four card opening will be used, as well as open contracts after "dumping". The four-player semi-finals will feature Empire Builder which inclues Canada and Mexico, and the four-player final game will be Eurorails.
