Snowdonia - Board Game Box Shot

Snowdonia

The peaks of Snowdonia rise before you, encased in mist, their summits barely visible. The highest is Snowdon (Wyddfa) herself at 1,085 metres. The year is 1894, and the Snowdon Mountain Tramroad and Hotels Company Limited has been formed to build a branch line from Llanberis to the summit. You can scarcely believe it's possible!

In Snowdonia players represent work gangs providing labour for the construction of the Snowdon Mountain Railway. Unlike other train games you will have to excavate your way up a mountain side, as well as make and lay the track, construct viaducts and stations. All this in competition with the weather of the Welsh mountains (and the game itself)!

You may be assisted by a train (though that's not always best) and you'll be able to collect essential materials from the Stock Yard. You will obtain special work contracts that give you bonuses.

Can you contribute more than the other players to the magnificence of the Snowdon Mountain Railway?

“True to a lovely theme”

The Basics:
A worker placement game focused on historical happenings, doing a great job of keeping to theme and immersing players into the difficulties involved in the creation of the mountain railway.

Pros:
Lots of components
Easy to learn
Suitable for players as young as 8 if playing with older players
Balanced
Nice artwork on cards and board
Inexpensive, especially given the components within.

Cons:
Yet to experience any other than I don’t win enough 😛

Lasting opinion:
Great game for both experienced and entry level players and although playable with 1-5 players, I feel its better with 3+ for the interaction/competition
