The BGG.con library is a bit short on 18xx titles. However, 18xx addicts tend to bring some of their own. :-)

Last year we took over most of the Mulberry room for most of the weekend; Mulberry won't be available, we've been pointed at the Elm room. (2011-09-29)

Please post a game here if you plan to bring it to the convention, or if you want someone else to bring it; I'll seed the list with 18xx titles from the BGG Library.

Please thumb the list if you think you want to play at least one 18xx title during the convention.

Please thumb an entry if it is a game that you are interested in playing. (Do not comment just to say you want to play in general -- that will clutter up the list. However, do feel free to schedule specific games at specific times.)

Please add a "me too" comment if you plan to bring a second copy.

Feel free to say things like "I will bring whichever two of my entries get the most thumbs" or come up with other creative and constructive ways to sidetrack this Geeklist. :-)

Last year?
The plan: 18xx at BGG.con 2010
The Reported Reality: 18xx at BGG CON 2010 (please post your experiences)


For those looking to play their first-ever 18xx game at BGG.con:

Welcome! We would love to teach you!

You might find that you get a bit more out of the experience if, ahead of time, you download a copy of Rails and play a game or two of 1889 or 1830 or 18AL against a few of your imaginary friends. (1889 with a total of three or four seats; 1830 with any number from 3 to 5.)

Lookout Games was handing out a Chattanooga promo for 1830+ at Essen, which does not have a BGG entry yet. 1830: Chattanooga Promotional Card

I'll have some to give out. (I don't know how many yet.)

Post here to get in line.

Note: This is listed as published by both Mayfair and Lookout Games, so Mayfair may have some to give out at their booth.

I do not recall whether I missed out on or declined a chance to play this last year, but in the interim I have learned that I missed out.

I do not have a copy, but would be interested in a game if there will be one at the con.
