Railways Of Nippon
Eagle-Gryphon Games

We will be doing demo sessions of Railways Of Nippon, a stand-alone game.
Players will create their own railroad and issue bonds to raise needed capital. Build track and link cities of your choice while competing for the most profitable routes. Deliver valuable goods and reap greater profits for longer deliveries. Upgrade your locomotive and travel the longer, more lucrative routes. Well time infusions of cash can help you pick up steam but taking too many bank bonds may hinder your ultimate goal of becoming the richest railroad baron of Japan.

It's free to participate, so come and have some fun.
