Railways of Portugal expands the Railways of the World series with a brand new map of Portugal designed by Vital Lacerda (The Gallerist, Lisboa, etc.).
You plan and lay track, improve your trains, sell goods to other cities, and use operation cards to become the richest in Portugal! Balance your budget wisely, since taking too many bank bonds may ruin your business over the course of the game.
Foreseeing your competitors moves and making well thought out moves for yourself will ensure you have an undisputed railroad empire!
Highlights of the new game additions:
Islands off-shore which get more goods as the game goes on, but require more money to access via Maritime Connections
No black cities on the board, they can only be added at the beginning of the Industrial Age and via Urbanization
A "tight" map (close cities) that requires careful and tough decisions which lead to significant player interaction
Major Lines that need intermediate connections
New Operations cards and concepts including: State Treasury Shares, Government Subsidies, Maritime State Support & Public-Private Partnerships
