Northern Wales - rugged hills, beautiful landscapes, a few sheep... and narrow gauge railways with steam engines, crawling through the valleys to their destinations.Welcome to Foothills, where, in the shadows of Mt. Snowdon, several small Railway companies wait for 2 players to develop their routes. With this game, Tony Boydell and co-designer Ben Bateson add a new member to the Snowdonia game series. A tricky action selection mechanism adds new challenges for railway developers and requires planning ahead. With different setups, no two games will be the same!
