The Royal Limited is the fifth game in the Button Shy Simply Solo series. These are games that are one player only, light on rules, and big on replayability.  


The Royal Limited Expansion Collection includes all 4 expansions for the game (Second Line, Murder on Board, Vintage Engines and Conductors & VIPs) packed together in a vinyl wallet.

Second Line Expansion (4 Train Cards)

Business is booming! Running two lines on parallel tracks allows for maximum profits, as long as there are enough passengers.

This 4-card expansion introduces additional train cards in a new color and allows players to operate a second train below their first line.

Murder on Board Expansion (1 Detective Card, 1 Murderer Card, 1 Victim Card)

A stormy night. An isolated train traveling through the English countryside. It’s the perfect spot for a heinous crime. But the killer didn’t account for a renowned detective on board…

What would a train be without a little murder mystery? In this 3-card expansion, you must find the victim and catch the killer before time runs out or lose the game.

Vintage Engines Expansion (5 Engine Cards)

Historical cars, kept in pristine condition by teams of dedicated mechanics, give The Royal Limited its extravagant appearance. Only the most skilled engineers can drive these aging engines.

Each of the 5 Vintage engines requires the train to include a specific color, number, or sequence. One of these is added randomly to the game at setup. If the Engine’s goal is not met at the end of the game, the player must add 2 points to their score, making it difficult to secure victory.

Conductors & VIPs Expansion (3 Conductor Cards, 3 VIP Cards)

Working on The Royal Limited is almost as much of an honor as riding on it. Correspondingly, each voyage draws a host of fresh-faced conductors as well as new celebrities.

This expansion builds on the core gameplay with 3 new double-sided Conductor cards as well as 3 new VIPs. The Conductors can have special rules, change the number of cards drawn each round, or even increase the number of rounds played. The VIPs, meanwhile, work similarly to those in the standard game. However, 2 of them have multicolored tickets with numbers, constraining their placement.
