Trains Rising Sun is a deck building game with the added component of a game board where players build train routes and stations.  As in other deck building games, players begin with a small set of cards which you use to buy more powerful cards to add to your ever growing deck.  Cards are also played to lay tracks and build stations which score end game victory points.  Trains Rising Sun can be played as an expansion to the original Trains or as a stand alone game.  It also adds ticket to ride style route cards which give points for completing routes across the game board map.
