Players may choose the Russian Railroads base game, or the German Railroads expansion. The GM will attempt to match up players for their preferred game type.
There is no difference for scoring, or winning points for either board.
After final scoring, if players are tied, the following tie breaker will be used:
- Total track advancement (including industry track movement) with each color counting (1pt each regardless of color)
The semi finals will consist of both Russian and German boards. The final board will be decided by the majority decision of players, if a tie, the German board is favored.
