The board has several major cities and hubs as railroad destinations. Each player draws 3 route cards at the beginning of the game. These are the routes that the player will get credit for if completed by the end of the game. Gameplay is accomplished by drawing colored railroad car cards. There will be one or two routes between each city, some of which are neutral (gray) or a specific color. The player must collect enough cards of the same color to fill in every link on that route. There are also locomotives, which serve as wild cards and can be used anywhere.

At the end of the game, the routes are added up. Each route is worth a certain amount of points based on the length of that route. If a player has a route in their hand and did not complete it, they lose those points. Bonuses can also be gained, depending on the game, for making the longest train or having the most destination cards.

Added DiffLines:

* AntiRageQuitting: The electronic versions use a karma system where finishing a game raises your karma by 1 point and leaving a game early or timing out lowers it by 1 point. When you create a game, you can set a minimum karma level, meaning that people who rage quit (or regularly idle during games) will have a smaller pool of games to choose from.
