Train Game anyone?
1800 is based on and assumes you know 1830. 1830 has a fairly clean rule set compared to many other 18xx titles. 1800 is an OK game but I suggest getting 1830 as many other 18xx are derivatives or refinements on that set of rules or they assume you are starting from 1830. Besides, it's a terrific 18xx that should be available via online game stores.
I have played an almost complete game of 18xx Australia. I haven't played IN a while, but is this version good for beginners? The rulebook seems incomplete, not describing buying stocks for example.
