Union Pacific-opoly: a new board game
Author: stash

Just arrived, my new board game: Union Pacific-opoly! This could be the most fun since Dispatcher. Available from numerous outlets including the Union Pacific Store. Here's photo of the box atop a UP bath towel. Oh yes, fully licensed and approved by UPRR.

I'll see how the game goes when I have time. You can play the full version or a one-hour short version.

To quote SPLoopConductor: "Take Care, Stay Safe, Have Fun!" -- with my emphasis on the latter.

I have the game. It represents the fallen flags. Haven't played it in a while, haven't had the time to sit down and play it. Thanks dad for the gift though!

However, Chance Card-You delayed Amtrak for 4 hours: Collect $200!

Must be what all that trademark crap was about.

Obviously, there's real money to be made.

This is the only game I know of in which the dice used to move the trains are all blank. . .

What's the object of the game, to fill all the sidings with dead trains and bring the railroad to a standstill? Ooh wait, that's not a game, that's the real railroad!-BMT

Let me guess: "Amtrak" is on what would be the "Free Parking" corner on regular Monopoly, while "Go to Jail" becomes "FRA Inspector" with "Bad Ordered" on the opposite corner.

I like the idea of an all railroad monopoly game in light of the fact that the latest version of Monopoly for generalists has all four railroads (Reading, B & O, PRR and Short Line) taken out.

The only different is all four roads on this game are " WP, MP, MKT and UP" Everytime you land on it you pay 10% for using a railroad-owned square.
