Additional Information

At the beginning of the 20th century in San Francisco, Cable Cars are seen everywhere in town. Every player expands his cable car lines and is awarded points for every line connected to a destination station. If he is able to connect his line to the power station in the center, the received points are doubled! Who will own the most successful cable car lines at the end of the game?

I'm an avid game player and host a group of gamers (ages 20s - 40s) a few times a month. This is becoming one of our favorites.

There are other games that are nearly identical to the basic game. ("Metro" is one, taking place in Paris instead of SFO.) The advanced game (called the "expansion", but it's all in the same box), however, is its own separate beast and the one we prefer. Definitely not a game for smaller kids, this involves a bit of math to determine the winner. (I created a spreadsheet to make that a bit easier.)

Simplified rules for the expansion:

Much like Metro or other "path tile-laying" games, this game can be as simple as trying to lay down titles to connect your train lines with the center of the game board. On the other hand, the expansion allows you to "play the stocks" and try to control a majority share of the most successful cable car lines (as described in the other reviews). Why would you purchase this game instead of Metro or something else? Simple: you are a SF native (or would like to be) and you like well-made, artistic, fun games about your favorite city.

Note: Amazon's current listing price as of 30 December 2011 is way too high. A quick search on the internet should find you the game for at least $20 less.
