Play the light strategy game Railroad Rivals.

Games Master – Captain Karl August Bergmann

While playing Railroad Rivals, you connect cities via one of the twelve great railroads that stretched across the United States, while simultaneously building your stock portfolio. You then use those railroads to make deliveries that drive up the price of your stocks. At the end of the game, the player who has run the most profitable railroad while also owning the most valuable stocks becomes the greatest of all of the railroad rivals!

Captain Karl August Bergmann (B.A. Klapper) is a writer, historian, tabletop gamer, and polymath. He has a particular interest in nineteenth century history and the development of transportation and financial networks. When he isn’t dealing with a temporal crisis as captain of the airship Amelia, you can either find him reading a book or living on the internet.
