This is one of my favourite 18xx titles.
18Ardennes has been described as "18EU with the bugs fixed". This isn't entirely accurate, but there are many similarities: 15 minors auctioned at the start, minors turn into majors etc. But there are some important differences, which make Ardennes a better game, for example: minors can last to the end of the game.
Like 18EU, it is a game where route-building (and tokening) is just as important as buying/shuffling trains - you have to get both of these aspects right to win.
The one weak element is the start of the 4-player game. Adding the Lux (the 16th minor) makes it better than EU, but because the Lux is so useless it is still a problem.

Played some playtest games with five players. The rules for five can block players out of opening the major companies (painful). This should be remedied in the final version.

IMHO, the most intense, brain burning 18xx around. Forces cutthroat-ness whether you like it or not, as key cities get tokened out almost automatically. The limited number of majors companies makes the game decisions difficult. Played with 3, two times. It is important that a person does *not* get control of a majority of majors. Not for the faint of heart. Essentially, 18EU, made much more difficult and unfriendly. Good place to hone your cutthroat skills.

ASL ... yes, this is my Desert Island Game. If I have to give up all my 3000+ games and only allowed to keep one, this would be it. This bloody game stood the test of time. Around for more than 25 years - simply the best.

France - A flatter stock market than is necessary, and easier track options make the game good for beginners, but flexible company types and merger options keep the interest of the veterans..
