Your mission

It's late November, 1942. The 19:05 to Paris is armed with a bomb and hurtling towards its destination threatening civilian destruction.

On board, the passengers include a Resistance Conspirator, an Mi6 Agent and a Prisoner of War on the run. To avert disaster, they have only one hope: an emergency meeting to identify the Saboteur, throw him off and Stop the Train!

The game play is simple to pick up and rewarding to replay. Each turn players select, discard and play Effect Cards which either slow or accelerate the speed of the train along the track. Sounds simple? Perhaps it would be if you didn’t have a traitor aboard and a secret character mission to achieve without being implicated yourself!

Along the way you’ll encounter twists and turns as each game uniquely unfolds. Which route will the train take? Who stole your Permit to Travel? Who is the Saboteur? Did we throw the right person off the bridge?!
