Railroad Ink Challenge (Solo Option)


Railroad Ink Challenge is a quick-playing roll-and-write game for 1 to 4 players.

Grab a board and a dry-erase marker, and get ready to reach networking nirvana!

Roll the dice and draw the routes to connect the exits around your board. Expand your network with railways, highways and stations to collect points, but you will be penalized for any open connections, so plan carefully!

Railroad Ink Challenge has everything you love from the original Railroad Ink games and a lot more, with an all-new focus on player interaction thanks to in-game goals!

Only those who achieve them first get the reward, so you have to keep an eye on what your opponents are doing and try to complete the goals before they do! A different set of goals is available each time, so no two games will be the same!

But wait, there’s more! Draw unprecedented, mind-bending route configurations thanks to the new dice!

Connect special structures to your network to trigger new effects: factories allow you to duplicate a die, villages give bonus points if they are close to a station, universities unlock extra special routes — use these effects wisely and you’ll score big!

Railroad Ink Challenge comes in multiple versions, each one including one expansion with an additional dice set that adds new special rules to your games.

Create placid forest landscapes and build into a beautiful arboreal paradise with the Lush Green Edition!

Solo Play Rules

The solo mode of Railroad Ink Challenge™ follows the same rules as a regular game, with one exception: instead of achieving Goals before your opponents (since there are none), you will have “Timed Goals” to achieve before the end of a certain round:

  • Top Goal – 3rd round
  • Middle Goal – 4th round
  • Bottom Goal – 5th round

If you complete a Goal before its time limit expires, you gain 4 points. If you complete it after the time limit expires, you only gain 1 point.
