Iberian Railways Coming This Spring
Rio Grande Games has announced Iberian Railways. It is for three-to-five players and has a play time of an hour. "The players in the game start with no money and no income. Connecting to cities on the game board increases a railway's revenue, but players must take loans to build their rail network. These loans provide instant capital but come with substantial interest, which is paid each turn."

Reviews
Succulent (What’s Eric Playing): “I like a lot of things that Succulent does, like its art and its whole general vibe. It’ll work very well for players who are thematically into games like Herbaceous or other “chill” games that want something perhaps a little more complex.”

Dragon Castle (Board Game Quest): “A great abstract strategy game with some excellent production values.”

Jurassic Parts (Gaming With Sidekicks): “Overall I would recommend this one to families with kiddos who love dinosaurs or really anyone who wants to get out a chisel, dig around in the dirt and become the best Paleontologist at the dining room table.”
