Snap. The Ox-Train Era. Early Troubles of Border Trade: T. Buchanan Price
Take a Train is a family game for two to six players of age 8 and up. The aim in the game is to enlarge your fortune thanks to smart investments in rolling stock.Players take on the role of investors who meet at the locomotive auction and try to buy the best of auctioned railway vehicles. Locomotive cards are not the only ones available for purchase though, because investors also compete for the most valuable railway wagons.The game is played for three rounds, each of which consists of two stages. In the first stage, the players bid locomotive cards. The auction type in each round is determined by drawing one of the six auction tokens. During the bidding of locomotive cards, the players should pay attention not only to its price, but also to the multiplier placed on the card (the higher, the greater the potential profits) as well as the locomotive speed. Once all the players have already purchased three locomotives, the second stage takes place. In this stage they are attaching wagons to their locomotives. They also make a choice: either to take one of the face-up wagon cards and attach to one of their locomotives, to pass and do not take any card, or to pay for replacing cards on the table and only then decide, whether to take one of the available wagons.The round is over when one of the locomotives of any player has its fifth wagon attached. Then, all the players are summing up the profits. Each player adds up the value of the wagons attached to the locomotive, then the obtained score is multiplied by the multiplier of the locomotive. This process is repeated for each of the locomotives. The earned money supplies the player´s account. After three rounds, all the players add up their earned money. The player who earned the most, wins.Take a Train is an entertaining and exciting game, which gives everyone a chance to feel like a rail market tycoon.

The path is not easy for them, however. Carol also has a child and a very suspicious husband?dangerous ground for the lovers. When the women leave New York and travel west together, they discover the choices they´ve made to be together will have lasting effects on both their lives.Considered to be the first lesbian pulp novel to break the pulp publishing industry-enforced pattern of tragic consequences for its lesbian heroines, The Price of Salt was written pseudonymously by Patricia Highsmith?the author of Strangers on a Train and The Talented Mr. Ripley.As one reviewer wrote in 1952, ´´Claire Morgan is completely natural. She has a story to tell and she tells it with an almost conversational ease. Her people are neither degenerate monsters nor fragile victims of the social order. They must?and do?pay a price for thinking, feeling and loving ´differently,´ but they are courageous and true to themselves throughout.´´About Vintage Lesbian Pulp FictionIn the early 1950s new sub-genres of the vintage paperback pulp novel industry emerged?science fiction, juvenile delinquent, sleaze, and lesbian fiction, for instance?that would tantalize readers with gritty, realistic and lurid stories never seen before. Mysteries, thrillers and hardboiled detective pulps were already selling quite well. Publishers had come to realize, however, that sex would sell even more copies. In a competitive frenzy for readers, they tossed away their staid and straightforward cover images for alluring covers that frequently featured a sexy woman in some form of undress, along with a suggestive tag line that promised stories of sex and violence within the covers. Before long, books with these sensational covers had completely taken over the paperback racks and cash registers. To this day, the ´´good girl art´´ (GGA) cover art of these vintage paperback books are just as sought after as the books themselves were sixty years ago.With the birth of the lesbian-themed pulp novel, women who loved women would finally see themselves?their experiences and their lives?represented within the pages of a book. They finally had a literature they could call their own. For lesbians across the country, especially those living in small towns, these books provided a sense of community they never knew existed, a connection to women who experienced the same longings, feelings and fears as they did?the powerful knowledge that they were not alone. We are excited to make these lesbian pulp novels available in ebook format to new generations of readers.
