1844 Rules Errata and Clarifications

1844/1854 are an excellent pair of 18xx games that unfortunately have a lot of small errors in the rule books.

These include corrections for the game components which are either wrongly given in, or else missing from, the game component lists.

1844

1. [Missing rule, page 9:] Activated Mountain Railways (B1 – B5) and activated Tunnel Companies (T1 – T5) pay income to their owners at the same time as Private Companies, at the Start of an Operating Round. [The rules omit specifying when these payments occur in an OR.]

2A. [Clarify:] When placing a yellow city tile on the B hex at F11 or the Z hex at D19, also place the corresponding B or Z token onto that hex. (See page 10, Build Track.)

2B. [Omission:] The Tile Upgrade Chart should show that both the B hex and Z hex must go to a yellow city tile (5, 6 or 57) before upgrading to a green B or Z tile.

2C. [Addition:] On placing a yellow or green tile onto the Z (Zurich) hex at D19, it is not permitted to have track running from east to SW. That is, if a track leads to Rapperswil, then a track may not lead to Zug (or vice versa). [Otherwise a legal upgrade to brown Z tile 909 is not possible.]

2D. [Clarify:] Aarau hex D15 only upgrades to green and brown OO tiles.

3. The 11 square tokens are Destination tokens, place these on the corresponding destination hexes as a game aid. (See page 11, Destination Hexes.)

4. Clarification to the Emergency Financing rules on page 15, and use of the 7 Kredit tokens. [Change the 4th bullet point as follows]:

– When the director has sold all the shares he wants, make a note of the money he still owes to the bank for the new train.
– Then add 50% interest (rounded up) to the remaining debt.
– Place a Kredit token in front of that director as a reminder of the remaining debt and the consequent constraints.
– On paying off all of the remaining debt, remove the Kredit token.

5. [Clarification:] Any debt from upgrading pre- SBB shares on Forming the SBB is not subject to the 50% debt tax, as stated on page 17. However, the constraints given under the Emergency Financing rules on page 15 still apply, including adding a further 50% interest to any remaining debt at the end of a stock round.

6. [Page 18 error, page 5 is correct.] V1 to V5 are capitalised at 2 times the share price, and receive a further 2 times the issue price on reaching its destination hex, as per page 5 and page 11. It is not 5 times as stated on page 18.

7. [Clarification: see page 19.] On closing the P7, the owner of the P7 Private Railway Company gets the 5H Train named “EVA”.

Edit: 12/08/2016 (More corrections and changed order.)

Ah, that would have changed a game I played quite a bit. I though you could not lay a tile there until phase 3, so companies in that area floated later. Thank you for posting this.

I don't think this is correct. In the original printing, Aarau is not an OO city.
