Excellent game and whilst the PC version is a little buggy you can play a railway game in 1½ hours

I only have the PC version that I bought on ebay because all the hype on bgg.

1830 very different from other econ games because you goal is to make your holding company money by investing in rail companies. Initially you will be tempted to think that your goal is to run a successful company but your goal is to make money by having a highly profitable portfolio of rail stocks. In essence, you are a portfolio manager of a rail holding company. You may become a controlling owner or a silent partners of one or more rail companies. If you control a company you must balance giving money investors, like yourself, or reinvesting funds back into the company for research and development, as well expansion. To win you must give your investors lots of money but if the company does not expand or at least keep up other rail companies, then you will be holding stock that are not worth as much other companies.

Hmmm, so this is what a heavier Chicago express/Steam feels like. It's an ok game if you are clear on the rules. The graphic design should depict many rules on the cards/board especially in the new edition. Epic economic game. Try it!

In the past I had some amount of disdain for 18xx games. I think it comes from watching the train gamers for years at GenCon. They would play their games pushing money around all weekend and it seemed they would never leave their corner of the convention center. Walking into that part of the hall was like entering a foreign country. So for years no, decades, I stayed away from 18xx. Then the new version of 1830 comes out and a freind buys it. I figured, why not try a play. And I have been thinking of that one play ever since. The funny thing is, for the preeminent train game, the trains are almost the least part. This is truly a stock game and a game of the harshest realities of buying and selling stock, aging trains and cut-off routes. It is brutal and it knows it. There are points in the game where it tries fairly hard to bankrupt a player....and it is awesome.

I tend to play this more on PC than face to face. Although not by choice.

Features a really restrictive set of tracks compared to other 18xx. I am uncertain if that is better or worse, only that it is different, and as a result, sort of shift the focus away from the tile laying. Granted the initial placement of tracks is still important, however, I found myself spending less time in trying to optimize my runs and more in the market manipulation.

Unfortunately, we made the mistake of giving out dividends to the company for shares left in the IPO rather than in the pool. So there was too much money floating around which caused trains to be bought too quickly. Despite that, I am interested in trying 1830 again because I imagine the game would have played vastly different.
