Volldampf (Full Steam) by TM Spiele/Winsome Games

Volldampf is a quick and tense German Railroad-themed game. A couple of drawbacks for English-only players are the rules and the Action and Sequence of Play cards are written in German. The following files are here to help. Printout on a sticker sheet (best way) or card stock, English versions of the cards (the back side is only necessary for full card stock versions). These are Greg's adaptations of a BoardgameGeek upload by Robert L. Cannon in Word 2002 format. Plus, Greg's done a version 3.0 of the English rules translation (version 1.0 done by Bob Scherer-Hoock) to help cleanup some of the machine translation and formatting. Enjoy!
