Okay, this list may be a little self-serving. I'd like to see more people interested in the 18xx family because we're about to publish what we think will be the perfect entry-point into this series. I've been watching the number of users who have various 18xx games on their wishlists, and I'd like to know what's keeping you guys?

Okay, this one probably answers itself. The most popular 18xx game ever, and it's out of print. Unpunched copies go for at least $150 on eBay, and that's a good chunk of bread for a game. I'll give you guys a pass on this one.

This is a big-volume production from Mayfair, and is still pretty commonly available. It's a bit on the heavy side, though... Okay, it's really heavy.

This excellent game has the potential to bring about a new era of peace and prosperity in our time. Upon it's release the world's population will rejoice, the planets will align, disease and hunger will be eradicated for all of eternity... Well, I'm not quite objective enough to offer any reasonable analysis here, so I'll just say that this one hasn't been released yet, so I'm not surprised that there are no owners. This will be available in the next month or so.

Edit: This has been released, and there are now a few owners, with more on the way.

The other Mayfair biggie. I'm surprised to see it on so few wishlists, actually. This is about as heavy as they come, though. (18NA and 18C2C: Manifest Destiny not withstanding.)

An 18xx game in spirit, if not in name. It seems a bit tough to find in the 'States. This game has taken a some flak from purists for it's graphic style, and it's odd Monopoly-hotel station markers. Is the lack of support from the hardcore 18xx'er keeping it down, or is it just a question of availability?

Okay, maybe these 60 people are still waiting for their copy. But Deep Thought Games has enlisted some help to work through the backlog, so this should be appearing on more game tables soon.

I wish Mr. Tresham's games were more widely available on this side of the pond. My guess is that the vast majority of the people who have wishlisted this game just wish they didn't have to pony up the $$$ for shipping.
