This list is inspired by a similar list by my gaming friend BGG user WonderCinz's list of 2-Player Games he wants to play. His list can be found here:
2-player Games Aaron Wants to Play

Here I list the 18xx titles I want to play in order of interest. Some are on the list because I've played them and I like them quite a bit. Other titles are on the list because I've yet to play them but would like to.

I own all these 18sx titles, unless otherwise noted in the GeekList Item entry.

Nasty little game. . . which can be a good thing. I've played it a couple of times in person and once PBF on BGG. I have not done well. I'd like to give it another go.

I'd like to play this F2F with the local group to see how it is received.

18-Aug-14: Just got a copy from DTG. I'm eager to try it out. I need to laminate and cut the company charters.

3 types of trains, 2 types of capitalization, mergers, and a random setup that should enhance replay value.

I've enjoyed this with 3, 4, and 5 players. I've heard that it works well with 2, which would be a rarity among 18xx titles.

This one is popular among the local group of 18xx players.

After 18OE, I will surely back Mark Frazier's next Kickstarter. I'm looking forward to this with great anticipation.

Another Double-O game I have not tried. I purchased this along with 1844 directly for the publisher. I have my copy laminated and have it about 50% cut out.

This one gets pretty good reviews, as well.

Update: Finally finish cutting the tiles. This is ready to go!

I've yet to play this one. I've read some good reviews. I own a copy that I imported from Germany. The tiles and certs need to be cut. will purchase the Lookout reprint when it's available.

This is being published by Wolfram Janich. I'm planning to order a copy. I need to auction a few other games to raise some cash first.

An epic game in scope and length. Maybe my interest is increased due to the fact this one is still relatively new and the production values are great. It will only remain high on this list if the game play continues to satisfy. I've enjoyed the few plays I've managed so far.

This has been well received locally.

I've only played this one time. I liked it. Maybe I'll play it 2-player with my son. It is reported to be good with two.

Makes it this high on the list because it's new, I haven't played, but I own it.

The initial ratings are few in number and seem good, but not great.

I've played this 3 times, all F2F, all with 3 players. I like it quite a bit. I'd like to try it with 4.

This is mostly unknown to the local group. I'd like to introduce them to it.

I have a homemade copy, but with a board made by Print-and-Play-Productions.

My copy:



Edit: added link to PnP Productions.

I own the JKLM version. I've never played this one. I would like to try it. My geekbuddies seem split on this one: some really like it, some really don't.

I have a PnP copy. The components might be slightly outdated. I've played it one time. I need more plays to decide how much I like it.

Double-O is dominating my list so far. I've played this one a couple of times F2F and a couple of times via Rails / email. I'm eager to get it to the table again for another F2F play.

This one has some fans among the local 18xx players.

I've played it a couple of times with the local group.

Another one that I own, but haven't played. I believe this is the ancestor to 18GL, which I also own and have played.

This was one of the first 18xx games we played locally after Steam Over Holland. I haven't played it in a long while. I'd like to return to it now that our group has a bit more experience.

One of the most popular titles here locally. Easily the 18xx that has seen the most play. That is, in part, due to the fact that it is the title that the local group can play in the least amount of time.

Edit Aug-2014: upgraded my copy to a quad-fold board!
