Ben Is Happy! Railroad Ink Has Landed At Essen SPIEL '18

5 Comments

Horrible Games has been showing off Railroad Ink for a while now at shows like Gen Con and the like but now it has finally seen a release here at Essen SPIEL ’18 to the public.

It was the one game that I (Ben) was really looking to pick up at the show and I can’t wait to play it. The game is what’s called a Roll & Write and has you rolling dice then using pens to draw out the railroads that you want to create, hoping that it is all going to come together into a great network that banks you loads of points.

There has been a massive landslide of Roll & Write games recently and this is certainly one of them that stands out from the crowd…

…oh, and blue is best.

Many years agonist had a game called Railway Rivals that used pens to draw on wipe clean map. Sounds a lot like that game.

Railroad Ink is great. Get both red and blue and play them at the same time with a larger group.
