Has anyone played any of these games? If so, which ones and how were they? They cover some interesting topics but I still hesitate to spend even their low prices without knowing a little bit about the gams.

I own (and want to trade/sell) Erie Canal. Never played, but read the rules.
See my comments on that game's page. Nice to look at, but a roll and move game with little choice except whether to overload your boat at the start.

Perhaps a better game can be designed using the components included...

Still, for those of us who never lived in the Canal era, it does provide an interesting overview of what canals were all about.

I hope the other CH games are better in terms of game play, but I've never seen them.

I own Longhorn and Remember the Alamo. The games themselves are pretty straightforward and come with a spinner. There's also a lot of historical background. The graphics are really good. Basically it's a print and play game already printed out for you to assemble and play. The maps are well done and pretty accurate! It's a good teaching game for a school, but I don't know how much fun it would be for playing a game for FUN.

I plan to use them for my middle school gaming group next year.

Just picked up and played The Underground Railroad 3 times, first with just myself and then two plays with my wife. I think it was worth the ~$8 we paid for it. We'll be playing it with our kids (6 & 8) with two rule changes to make the game more interesting (more card draw and modified slave-catcher movement/placement).

I think the house tokens and the cards were a bit small and may print larger copies if the tiny font bugs me too much. The spinner was a bit stiff a first, but putting it together and taking it apart a few times loosened it up enough that it spins nicely now. We glued the spinner diagram to a mini-cd (perfect size) and connected the spinner to it through a hole in the jewel case - this works perfectly.
