Turns much of what you know about 1830 on its ear (EDIT: HA! Just read JC's write up and he totally uses this analogy as well -- it is totally appropriate). Many new facets to discover on an old gem. Lots of activity in the south in the first part of the game, then a heavy surge in the north the last part. I fear that there isn't much incentive to move west, but that could be group think...maybe.

It does make the game longer, injects more money into the system, but makes for really fun stock choices and extra companies (I played with the Reading as well) mean fun shenanigans for all.

Anyway, lots of fun for folks that look for a new way to play 1830.

The best of the 1830 variants, although the actual coalfields themselves are only of marginal relevance. The B&O and NYNH have been weakened, while moving the C&O makes the game even more NY-centric than before. The game's pace has been reduced, but if you want to play 1830 on a more level playing field then this is the way to go. In different ways it's just as flawed as the original: the B&M is perhaps a little too strong, while the Canadian Pacific remains as weak as ever.

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.

Adds two rows at the bottom of the map. In our game there was a shortage of basic track tiles. With Reading, there was too much money in the bank.

The end-game takes too long compared with other 18XX games.

Yes, I know a proper 18XX tile should have a tile number.

Coalfields is critically flawed but briefly interesting -- it takes 1830 and loses the train rush and company push while increasing the absolute focus on NYC. The result is a pedestrian exercise of plodding down the dreary slope waiting for the game to happen.

Although it add some nice track building options it lengthens the game to much for what it is worth. I also do not like the monster runs that come with it.
