DERail is a convention that is all about playing train games. Players compete for the highest point total by playing in games such as the 18xx series, Great Western Trail, Ticket to Ride, Trans America, Russian Railroads, and Union Pacific.

Players will be awarded points for games played, opponents played, games won, & placement in each
game, with a multiplier on the last two factors based on game length
Prizes awarded for best score in 18xx games, best score in non-18xx games, best overall score, best scores
on Friday & Saturday, & for the winner of the Sunday Ticket to Ride tournament

A Ticket to Ride tournament will be held on Sunday at 9AM, and if there are at least 8 players this tournament will count for Meeple League points. Multiple versions of Ticket to Ride will be played during this tournament (typically USA, Europe, Asia, PA, Scandinavia, and Switzerland). You must be registered with at least a one day membership in order to participate.
