Great game and the designer will be there to play. I'd be happy to play the full game or even one of the shorter scenarios.

I don't have a copy of this but there will be one, and maybe two, copies there.

I'd really like to play the longer 1844, a game I've only gotten to the table once before but with not enough time to finish it, but I'd be up for 1854 as well.

I have a copy of this.

I've only had a chance to play this once and I really liked it. Lots of different things going on with this one but they all make sense.

I don't have a copy of this.

This is my favourite of the Marflow games I've tried. I'd be happy to play the full game or with the expansion.

I have a copy of this and the expansion.

This game seem really popular right now and I've yet to play it. I'd like to fix that.

It plays on the same map as 1822. Wales is just as much of a pain to get into and out of. Take actions to grow your wealth at the expense of others. Opportunity to block transportation routes. Both have a struggle for control of London. You get to build fortified "stations" around the country. Encourages semi co-operative self interested play. Takes about the same time to play as 1822.

whistleTongue firmly in cheek here. Trying to appeal to those who want to take a break from 18xx in the title of the geeklist. What it lacks in trains it makes up for in Irish and Anglo/Saxon raiders.

I can always hope.

Got to try this one recently. A good streamlines 1830 that played in four and a half hours first play with three. I'm pretty sure it would be faster with four.

If there are going to be newbies, I've introduced a lot to 18xx with this game. It's streamlined and short with a nice "knife-fight-in-a-phone-booth" feel.

I'll bring this for the curious. It has some interesting mechanisms but it was designed to be generous. Most 18xx games you frequently come up a couple dollars short. This one is like trying to aim a firehose of money at your face while you open your mouth as wide as possible.
