jcl, agreed. it's no wonder that a four player of 1870 took about 11 plus hours to finish with two vets and two newbies that knew nothing about 18xx games.astancius
1837 is in ps18xx, so the map’s there (`make M37.ps`): https://github.com/18xx/ps18xx Just scale it to fit. Rules:clearclaw
I recently acquired a copy of 1837 but the map is a bit beat up. This is not surprising given the age of the fame but I was wondering if there was any chancejasonbartfast
The 1800s group is for discussing news and play relating to railroad board games based on the concepts of the 1829 and 1830 games originally designed by Francis Tresham.
These multiplayer games entail a simulation of railroad corporation growth and stock market manipulations, while building a railroad
network using a hex track tiles on a specific geography.
The title of the games often relates to a key year that railroad development was started in that region, most of which occured during the 1800's.
There have been a number of games professionally published, and many more fan designs.
