What is Station Master?
Good Morning! Down by the Station, it's going to be a busy travel day.
As Station Master, your job is to make sure everything runs smoothly. Your efficiency in assigning the appropriate railcars to locomotives, boarding the trains with passengers, and making sure the trains depart on time will allow you to win the game!
Station Master is played over a series of turns until all locomotives have left the station. Each turn, players choose to either attach a railcar to a train or assign a Passenger pawn to a railcar. The railcars determine the value of the train – positive or negative! Each Passenger pawn is played face down, so only its owner knows its value. Additionally, Action cards can be played that cause a variety of effects, from removing Passenger pawns or railcars to changing the values of trains! When a Locomotive’s railcar limit is reached, the train pulls away from the station, and players reveal the values of the Passenger pawns. Players determine their score for the train by multiplying the value of the train by the value of their Passenger pawns.
