The San Francisco Bay Area 18xx group is nominally a sub-chapter of SB-Boardgamers. Founded in February of 2009, we meet on the second Monday of every month at SB-Boardgamers and play 18xx! We normally have enough 18xx players on those evenings for two or three 18xx games to be played. The SFBay-18xx email list is used to coordinate and schedule sessions and games to be played. The primary purpose of the group is to teach the 18xx to new players, and thus evangelise and expand the hobby, so there's usually a teaching game running each month (usually 1889), as well as another game for the sharks.

The purpose of this geeklist, and subsequent lists each month, is to keep track of the games we play and to afford a central venue for discussion of the games we have played and want to play. A master geeklist tracks each of the monthly geeklists:



Additionally to the geeklists, an email list is used to coordinate specific games and meetings:



For the sake of completeness, the sub-lists will also include the other 18xx game playing that many of the same people get in during the month in these geeklists. As such they will include 18xx gaming we play on many other Mondays at SB-Boardgamers, plus games at Silicon Valley Boardgamers, Boardgame Addicts of the Peninsula (BAP), the SF Bay Area/Los Altos Games Day, Endgame Oakland, and random other gaming events.

Other 18xx gamers in the Bay Area are absolutely encouraged to join the discussions and to list the games they play!

A teaching game. Clayton is the most promising novice player I've seen in a long while.

A race between my share advantage but diesel purchase, and Dayton's significant cash lead.

More interestingly the game featured several exceptionally good plays by both Erich and Dayton -- all aimed squarely at me and forcing me to dance and twitch delightfully. eg Yeah, with Erich to my right, I really wanted to sell 30% of my portfolio just to avoid a liability in the next SR, with no option for the cash but to secure a $200 presidency I'd need later, to then have Erich give me priority.
