Russian Railroads

1/3/2022 – Only one game left to start and three have now finished. Three more look to be ready to finish in the next few days.

1/1/2022 – We have 29 players in 29 games for the first round. All but four games have started and two games have already finished. The top 14 will advance to the semifinal. Once we have enough games finished, I will post the standings. Have fun!

Please see the Welcome! page for general tournament rules and guidelines. Specific rules for Russian Railroads can be found here, along with updates for the 2021 tournament.

Deadline will be November 30, 2021. Games should be ready to start by the first or second week of December.

The first round and the semifinal will use the basic Russian Railroads version on Yucata with no extras. For the final, there will be three games, one Russian, one German, one American. The top six qualifiers from the semifinal round will each play in two games. The top qualifier will choose one of the three versions to skip. The second qualifier will choose one of the two remaining versions to skip. The tables will therefore be set as described on the Welcome page.

If players tie in a game other than the final, then they both receive half credit for the win (each will receive 551 points) or second place (each will receive 56 points). In the final, the player who plays later on the last turn wins any tiebreaker.
