There are many many 18xx games, some long, very long, some huge, some tiny and and some even relatively short. It is hard to get an overview of both the range of games, and where individual games fit within the larger system. This geeklist, in part, is intended to address that.

The goal: To provide a condensed survey and reference to the field of 18xx games for new and expert players alike.

Please enter the following:

A brief discussion of the game, the aspects that make it particularly interesting (or not), your general views on it, how well it is supported by Lemmi's moderator (if you know) etc.

Overall Rating:
Rating with 2 Players:
Rating with 3 Players:
Rating with 4 Players:
Rating with 5 Players:
Rating with 6 Players:
Rating with more players: (for those that support more than 6)



Note: I've added a few expansions which have their own game entries, and make significant changes to the base game. Please feel free to discuss other expansions and variants, such as the 1830 Coalfields or Reading variants, or the starting package variants for 1835 under their main game entries if they don't have a direct listing.

1841 - Northern Italy (v2).

Listed separately as there is some debate over whether the v1 or the v2 rules are "better".
