Upstart Bundle Summary

This sweet On the Underground bundle includes the Deluxe Edition of On the Underground: London/Berlin 2nd Edition… and the three promo packs noted above (Engineering Crew, Obstruction, and Street Fair). Yes, please!! 🎉

Despite another round of busy-life/no-time-for-write-ups over here at Upstart central… I’ll at least provide a link to the original Kickstarter campaign from back in 2019. Where has the time gone?!?! Yikes!  Anyhoo… the link is HERE.

Quick note about retail and deluxe versions

This Upstart bundle includes the Deluxe version of the game… not to be confused with the retail version that many larger online shops are selling. If the listing doesn’t note deluxe version, and the box image doesn’t say DELUXE, then it is the retail version (smile). Obviously I want you to buy whatever version works best for you… I just want to be sure you’re aware that there are two versions 😉👍😬

On the Underground London and Berlin DeluxeOn the Underground: London and Berlin DELUXE is back!  And, I’ve got the promos too! 🎉

The London Underground is the world’s first underground passenger railway, having opened in 1863. Its 11 lines move about 5 million passengers a day to 270 stations, along 400 km (250 mi) of track.

The massive network of London Underground stations makes up one of the most complex transportation systems in the world, and On the Underground challenges you to develop it. Build the most successful lines, connect them to landmarks, and attract passenger traffic!

Gameplay Overview

In On the Underground, the players build the Underground lines in London or the U-Bahn lines in Berlin. Each player controls 2-4 different lines, depending on the number of players.

On each turn, four destination cards are available, corresponding to stations on the map. You can take up to four actions; an action is either building track by placing one of your track tokens on the board or taking a branch token. A player may use two branch tokens to branch out of an existing line (whereas normally lines can be extended only at the endpoints).

After each player’s turn, a passenger token is moved along players’ lines, avoiding walking as much as possible, to reach one or two destinations determined at the beginning of the turn. The destination cards corresponding to the visited stations are then replaced by new ones, then the next player takes their turn.

Players score points in two ways:

  • By building track and connecting their lines to various types of stations, by building a circular line (in London), or at the end of the game if they have collected tiles from specific landmark stations (in Berlin).
  • By having the passenger use their lines when moving.

After all destination cards have been drawn and all players have taken the same number of turns, the game ends.

Differences from the First Edition of On the Underground

  • For their first turns only, the player first in turn order takes three actions, and the player last in turn order takes five actions. (Previously, everyone other than the start player had a few points added to their score as a balancing mechanism.)
  • The passenger is no longer removed from the board immediately when the draw deck is empty.
  • There is a new Berlin map, along with its corresponding cards and tiles.
  • On the London map, these single connections have been made double connections: Paddington-Shepherd’s Bush, Shepherd’s Bush-Goldhawk Road, Goldhawk Road-Hammersmith, Waterloo-Borough, London Bridge-Bank, Stratford-West Ham, and West Ham-Canning Town.
  • On the London map, this double connection has been made a triple connection: Borough-London Bridge
  • On the London map, the New Cross station has been removed, as has the connection between Aldgate and Canada Water.

Included with  the Deluxe Version:

  • Screen printed custom-shaped Destination tokens
  • Custom-shaped wooden Passenger tokens
  • Limited-edition transparent Passenger token
  • Deluxe slip case
