One of my other projects, the High Speed Rail Board Game

Aside from researching cooperative housing, I've also made a series of rail maps, including the California Rail Map, the Northeast U.S. Rail Map, and the  U.S. High Speed Rail Map.  Based on the latter is the High Speed Rail Game, a fast, fun, and educational game for 2 to 6 players where players act as politicians and make deals to get their voters connected.

The game's designed to be simple to learn and play, and is fun for both housemates and experienced gamers. 
  • Only 1 page of rules.
  • Sets up in 1 minute: just shuffle the cards and go.
  • All math limited to single digit numbers.
  • Just four types of tiles.
I'm currently fundraising for a first print run on Kickstarter, you can get a hard copy for as low as $15, shipping included within the US.  Details are at
