6.0 on BGG but again the theme of this attracts me. Looks to be a nice little set collection/draughting game that plays fairly quickly. NBP is Amazon (FBA seller).

In Continental Express, players add train cars to their station in the hope of fulfilling objectives and maximizing the value of their secret contract. To start the game, each player chooses one of two contract cards dealt to them; these contracts require players to collect icons of a particular color or groups of like-colored icons or icons and company tokens of differing colors.

Players then take turns drafting cards from three face-up rows; the card on the end of each row costs nothing, the card in the middle costs $1, and the card closest to each of the three decks costs $2. Players start with no money, however, and the only way to get some is to draft it – but naturally that means you'll be forgoing other cards. If a player has train cars matching one of the three face-up objective cards, he can choose to discard those train cars and claim the objective – and since the objectives have the icons that satisfy contracts, you'll probably want to do that.

In addition to train cars and money, players can draft characters, taking the special action of a character when he drafts one. Actions include things like taking a train car of your choice from the card array, stealing all money from one player, and taking a company token of the color of your choice. The card decks also include two events, and those cards flush either the objective cards on display or the smaller cards that players draft.

When a player claims his fourth objective, each other player takes one more turn, then the game ends. Players tally the points scored for their contract (if any), their claimed objective cards, and any money still in hand. Whoever has the highest score wins!

Quick question Jay, as I'm now following you

I used to read books as a kid whereby you'd get a choice of which route to go, so it would give you a chance to go to page 2 or page 25 etc.

Any idea what they were called, I csnt for the life of me find what they were called?

There were also the old text adventures on computer as well. They were also fun

I'll have a think if there were any other series like that as had some others that might be upstairs somewhere. Seem to remember there was one that linked 3 or 4 books together into one big adventure. Plus it had samurai so I was happy
