  TTR - Suggestion, Natural Disaster Cards Mon, 22 November 2021 16:13
Hey, I was wondering if there is a way to get some blank "TRAIN CARDS" maybe eight cards. Here, one can create Natural Disaster cards, which would have the same back as the Train Cards and get shuffled in with the deck. There could be Cards such as 8.0 Earthquake hits Los Angeles, another for San Francisco and maybe a third one for Portland. On the East coast there can be similar cards such as for the cities of Miami, Charleston, Washington, even New Orleans where these can state Hurricane wipes out all transit to and from <city name>. One can make up those Natural Disasters cards by choice, there could even be a card that is titled Major Snow Storm cripples <city name>.

How this alternative would work, the cards are included within the Train Cards and if a player has one in their hand they can choose to use it for one of their turns or keep it for the entire game for that city may be a part of their destination/route. If a player has a Natural Disaster card in his/her hand they can play it as a turn (similar as placing a route). Once played any and all trains that go to the named city are removed from the board and returned to the player(s). This will provide additional strategy to the game. If the Natural Disaster card is turned from the draw pile and placed up as one of the five up-cards, it is left there to be selected by any player for use on their next move.

I was wondering if any one else had a similar thought in this regard.

Yes, I think it would add some excitment to the game, even when the game is about to end someone can choose to play a Natural Disaster card and return the player that is about to go out will be returned train cars, prolonging the game with the possibility to change the entire outcome of the game.
The game as it is designed to play right now is many times there is just one obvious player that is going to win but with the Natural Disaster cards added to the game a level of uncertainty is added.
