STATION MASTER OVERVIEW


Good morning! It’s been a busy day down at the railway station! As Station Master, you must ensure everything runs smoothly. You’ll be adding railcars to iconic locomotives, boarding passengers on waiting trains and derailing others with action cards. Make sure the trains depart on time and earn the most efficiency points to win.

Each turn, you will manage tasks at the Station by either adding a Passenger pawn to a train or playing a card from your hand. When trains are completed, they will leave the Station. Players score Efficiency Points by multiplying a train’s value by the number of passangers on it. The player with the highest Efficiency Score after the last train leaves the Station wins the game.

STATION MASTER REVIEW


6 out of 10

Station Master is the train yard management game that is a light yet robust speculation title, with just the right amount of bluffing and hand management thrown in. Updating the original 2004 version this relaunch dramatically improves gameplay and artwork. Games are light and quick, so if you are looking for something that is quick to the table that has you making different short and long term bets better than you opponents, this is a solid one to check out. You may be left wanting more to do at times, but coincidentally that would break the lightness of the title so it is up to you if you think this will fit your play style.

STATION MASTER HOW TO PLAY


Players are managers of a train yard. Three locomotive cards sit and on a player’s turn they may either play a card from their hand to add a train car to an exiting train, to alter its point value, or add a passenger token, to try and take advantage of that trains value. Trains have numbers in the corner to represent how many cars it can hold, when it is filled it leaves and a new one takes its place. When all the trains have departed, your job is over. Use your passengers and ability to change train values to make the best speculations towards big points.
