Went over to Sean's place and played a rail game with aleffert and some of sean's friends from work. Really quite a fun little game. The most notable thing about it is that everybody starts with no cash and has to issue bonds to raise money, and the bonds can't be paid back, and you have to pay interest on them continuously. So you're constantly wrestling with how much debt you have, and there's huge pressure to start using cash to generate new streams of income really quickly.
