I mean - with the engine-building aspects of St. Petersburg, you could pretty much paste ANY theme on the mechanisms.

Did anyone try already?
Some fantasy setting? Sci-fi? Underwater?

Cannot really believe no one ever tried! ninja

My favorite 18xx game for six players is two games of 1846 with three players each.

Why not? I have seen many similar games with new graphics/themes, there is really nothing so spectacular about St. Petersburg being about "St. Petersburg" theme-wise.

Too bad I am not an artist myself...

A re-theme makes sense, given the vast number of St. Petersburg games and the very few sci-fi and fantasy games. Oh... wait..

I like the theme personally, and the original art. I would have been less interested if it had had a fantasy/scifi theme and im also glad i have the original, i dont like the art on the new version.

There actually is an official retheming with game designers and game reviewers. But the artwork of it is horrible. shakeyukgulp
