Railways of Nippon is a standalone version of the Railways of the World series created by Glenn Drover and Martin Wallace. Hisashi Hayashi has designed this new setting in Nippon, which will be available as a new four-player base game as well as a map-and-cards-only expansion.
The new game board for Railways of Nippon is a map of Japan at the beginning of the railroad era in the late-19th century. There are new Baron cards and Operations Cards for the Railways of Nippon.
Its unique board and cards are also available as an expansion for ROTW. Played as an expansion, you need the pieces from the base game of Railways of the World (track and city tiles, bonds, money, empty city markers, trains and first player marker).
