Re: 18xx in progress
- I have less time (as you surely have noticed) so my contribution to this
subject is only on which projects I am working:
1828 Deutscher Zollverein (German tax-union) which will be ready to released
for world wide tests at the Spiel '01 (as I hope)
Bulgaria (planned to be 1868 or 1866, but I am free with the year)
1813 or 1823 Kölner Karneval (Cologne Carnival), still a dream based on
1894 Verne, plays on the moon with a variable map.
I would be glad if nobody would use the numbers 1828 and 1894. I don't know
the exact year of the first Rosenmontagszug at the moment but I am sure that
the year lies before all "real" 18xx variants.
By the way, I am of the opinion that there should be an instance which can be
used as a reference. I think Xris' web site would be the best but nobody can
be forced to consider it as a reference.
If anybody goes his own way we all have to respect it although we may have or
own thoughts about such an action. There are no majority decisions in 18xx
and if they would exist someone had to subject to them to be accused of

There was a game by Francis Tresham called 1828. It was never
published, but tinkering turned it into 1829. I've never seen
1828, and in fact the only person on this list who might have
done is Stuart Dagger.

else confusion will ensue. I've played a game called 1868,
by a designer whose name escapes me at the moment. It was
never published (and shouldn't be without major changes, in

There are notes here and there for a 'limit-less' (train, share, ...)
train game which may have some similarities to 18xx.
But this is on extended hold, as the time slots used for 18xx design
and software design were re-assigned to a temporary participation in a
CEN standardization project, which can be rather funny too. Not to
mention similarities in rule exegesis...
