Variant Rules - Combined Maps
Eastern USA & Western USA


Additional Components
Instead of 25 Black Cubes, we use 45.
Instead of 25 Blue Cubes, we use 45.
Instead of 25 Red Cubes, we use 45.
Instead of 25 Yellow Cubes, we use 45.
Instead of 25 Pink Cubes, we use 45.

We have added White Cubes to be used as Settlers. (50 Cubes)
We have added Brown cubes to be used as Raw Materials. (15 Cubes)

Setup
Set up the goods in the Eastern USA as per normal game. (We have doubled the number of cubes to go in the bag, so there is no shortage of cubes.

Give all players two Eastern USA Rail Baron cards, they choose one to keep.
Give all players one Western USA Rail Baron card from abbreviated list of cards, they keep it. (Some cards removed as they were duplicates of Eastern USA deck).
Give all players one Transcontinental Rail Baron card from abbreviated list of cards, they keep it. (Some cards removed as they were duplicates of Eastern USA deck or they referred to coast to coast lines).

Leave all the Western Cities empty at the moment, the Western board will open up later in the game.

Settlers From the East
Whenever a city in Eastern USA is emptied, place settler(s) on the space. These are white cubes. The number of settlers is as follows:
...Grey City: 1 White Cube
...Blue/Yellow/Purple/Black City: 2 White Cubes
...Red City: 3 White Cubes

White Cubes can only be delivered from the Eastern Map to the Western Map.

When the last settler cube is removed from an Eastern USA city, place an empty city marker on the city.

Settling the West
Cities in the west will ONLY accept white cubes until the West is properly settled. Each Western city will only accept white cubes as follows:
...Grey City: 1 White Cube
...Blue/Yellow/Purple/Black City: 2 White Cubes
...Red City: 3 White Cubes

Leave the cube on the city to show how many settlers it has received.
 
Whenever a white cube is delivered to a city in the west, that city is populated as normal with goods cubes. That city is now fully in play and can accept or provide goods.

Raw Materials From the West
When the fifth white cube is delivered to the West, the Western board formally opens up for standard play.
...Place 15 Brown cubes in the cube page. These represent raw materials.
...Place goods on all city markers that have not previously received goods through settling.
...Brown Cubes can only be delivered to Red/Blue cities on the Eastern Map
...Brown Cubes count for 1 extra point when they are delivered.
...When a Brown Cube is delivered, it is out of the game. (Do not put the cube in the cube bag).

Game End
The game ends in the standard way, with a certain number of empty city markers. At least half of them must be on the Western USA map.
