From the publisher:
In 1490, Kaiser Maximilian I awarded Franz von Taxis the contract to deliver mail between the Kaiser’s residences in Innsbruck and Brussels.

He did such a good job, that postal services in the country continue to be connected with the name Thurn and Taxis. With the introduction of postal carriages in the middle of the 17th century, members of the family were raised to Count status and given the hereditary title of Postmaster General. The game begins at this point in history.

Can you emulate the achievements of this family and build a successful postal network? Do you have the talent to connect the right cities to create an effective network and not lose sight of the need to acquire new carriages when they are needed? Plan your moves carefully and watch your opponents’ moves carefully, so you are prepared to respond to them.

The game takes you back in time and gives you challenges that will bring you back to the game over and over.

At the top of page 3, there is a small typographical error in the example. It should read:

Example: a player has a route that includes Carlsruhe, Stuttgart, Nürnberg, and Regensburg. The player wants to add Innsbruck. As Innsbruck is not directly adjacent to either Carlsruhe or Regensburg on the game board, the player may not add it to either end.

I apologize for any confusion this error may cause.

Variant - "outside Baiern" = "all provinces"

Players may find the game simpler if they play the bonus tiles: "outside Baiern" as though they read: "all provinces". A player could only earn such a bonuss tile when he had at least one city in every province. As Baiern is so large, it is unlikely that a player will ever have a city in every province except Baiern, so this change is likely to have little actual effect on game play, except to make the game more easily understood.
