We recently played 1830 with seven players and the consensus was that it just didn't work well. With that in might I evaluated the "1830+" components included in the Mayfair edition of the game.

This is the scenario that I have come up with to handle seven.

(This used Scenario R as the starting point and hence why I call it RR.)

Design Goals:

Create a scenario that will handle seven players.
Change the game as little as possible.

Privates (Add):

C&O Canal (50/10)
James River & Kanawha (120/20)

Companies (Add):

Nickel Plate Road – With 3 stations. No (extra) double shares.

Norfolk & Western – With 3 stations. Start L16.

Trains: Add 4T and 6T (and a 3T?)

Map Board Alteration:

30a (Coal Field) on L8
30p – Richmond – K13 (C&O starts in normal location)
30l – Detroit / Windsor – E5 (standard game)
30f - “Maritime Warehouse” - B24

Also some addition of track pieces including some of the Yellow Bent Station hexes.

Share Limit (seven players): 12 - This leaves 6 certificates potentially unownable.

Comments welcome!
