This is the first expansion for Amabel Holland's Dual Gauge.

Honshu is a small, cutthroat map for three to four players. Money is tight and the terrain unforgiving. Along the way, you and your opponents will help industrialize Japan's largest island, upgrading low-paying dits into profitable cities. (In fact, failing to do so will result in end-game penalties!) Of course, cities can be tokened, allowing you to create chokepoints on the fly. A nasty, nasty map.

The second map shifts the scene to exotic and fantastical Wisconsin. This is a sprawling "big money" map for three to five players. The major gimmick here is that there are nine 5Ts, and these trains are "diesels" – running as far as you like along a stretch of compatible track. Plan carefully in the early game, and you can end up with a triple-digit run in the last couple Operating Rounds. But an inconvenient change in gauge or station can stop your diesel before it leaves the station.

When the base game came "back in print" in 2021, we added Company Charter cards. Those cards are also included in this expansion for our early adopters.

  • 17" x 22" Honshu map

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
