Think 1830 with mergers, systems and LOTS of companies. A title designed by one of the hobbies most enthusastic analysts. Craig is fit to teach, but this title is intrinsically deep (if not aneurism inducingly complex), so longhorns requested. It would be helpful if folks could read the freely avaiable manual prior to the day too.

1833 1/3

It shouldn't take 9hrs but is VERY different to other 18xx games.

Advanced title conceptually, if you haven't played it before. 'Mindblowing' on first play. One for long-horns or enthusastic and established students of the form.

Host: Jon C

Ideal player count: 4
Remaining player spots: 1
18xx title using Euro-style mechanisms for auctioning off the small, medium and major companies which make up a player's portfolio. Seeking players who know how to play 18xx already, but not necessarily expert in this title.

1889 - History of Shikoku Railways (

18xx - Beginner - Saturday 18:00-23:00

Host: Rob Appleyard

Ideal player count: 4
Remaining player spots: 3
A classic introduction title which still has enough depth to keep longhorns engaged play after play. Similar to 1830, but with meaningful differences that affect the decision space significantly. Crafted by the callus-worn hands of Rob Appleyard...

Get a first class ticket for trying Dave's naescent 18xx design. Hark! Look how he throws the 18xx naming convention out of the window! But what conventions remain?

A little taste of poverty is only a short hop across our westward coastline. With a hint of Indonesia, this title holds the capacity for violence like few others. Best not to drink whisky before you start this one...

Simon Cutforth's 1822 system inspired Scott Petersen to spawn this child, set in the equatorial heat of Mexico. Euro style auctions feature. Frequently. As does a national railway. ¬°Ay, caramba!
