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

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.

We will be meeting in the Glasscock room, the same location as last year. Note well, though: The Glasscock room is officially a general-purpose quiet games room. We cannot reserve empty tables for 18xx if people come in looking for table space to play other games.

I expect that in addition to formally scheduled games there will be a lot of pick-up 18xx played. (How often do you get to say that!) Just show up in Glasscock and ask when the next game is likely to start. 9 am seems to be popular.

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. :-)

Want some history?

18xx at BGG CON 2010 (please post your experiences)
18xx at BGG.con 2012 (Plans)

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.)

Would really like it if someone could give this a go with me, or guide me and my Dad through it.

I can bring my copy.

I'd love to play this again. NOTE WELL: Allocate the whole day for this.

This is a go for Friday at 9 am

Confirmed:
1. Me
2. Dave Duffield (HDTVDave)
3. Joe Masinter (joeeoj010) (Bringing Eric Flood's copy of the game)
4. Andrew Schoonmaker (NeonElephant)

Tentative:
(5) Richard Heller (rich8oy)
(6) Joe's friend Jenny

Does someone have chips or do I need to beg Johnny Office for his?

We have room for up to 7 (and there are published variants for more, though higher player counts reportedly don't finish with all players.)

I'd like everyone who is playing to at least read the rules beforehand; if requested I'll show up early to teach.

If possible have an opinion on whether to use 5 or 10 shorts; we'll go with majority of those who express an opinion as the game starts.

4-Jenny Hoo (Jennyhoo)
5-open


I'm not sure the best way to do this.

I'd like to play an 1846 game. There is already an entry for a (full) game I can't make. So, this is a new entry to try to start up a second.

Aliza, could we please borrow your copy?
Thanks for letting us borrow the game Aliza!

I've played a couple of times, so I can explain if needed.

How about Wed. at 4:00 or Saturday at 2:00? (Feel free to suggest other times. I'm just trying to get things to converge.)

This is a good game for teaching newcomers to 18xx; it is very similar to 1830 but has a lot of the sharp edges rounded off.

The BGG library does not have a copy; in 2011 at least 2 people brought it.
