Reminds me of Momotaru Dentetsu - I guess the concept is pretty much the same. Seems that people in Japan really love their railway-based board games. :)

This one was the first in line before that title. Maybe they copied the ideas and improved on them or it was a Train Monopoly game race!

Don't know about Tetsudou Ou or Momotaru Dentetsu, but the ultimate "train monopoly" board game came out in 1988; Lionel's Double Crossing.

Thanks for this. I love these "road less traveled*" ports of offbeat games. :)

*yes, I know the Frost poem was ironic in intent

This sounds kinda like Ticket to Ride for the NES.  Sign me up!

Thanks! Im hoping to get Thousand Land done real soon which is a pretty oddball game for the Xbox. It shares has similarities to Populous for the SNES.
