Hi everyone,

Gregor, Mischa, Michael and I will be holding an Intro to 18xx day on February 11th beginning at 12pm. The event will be held at 401 Games at 518 Yonge St (near Wellesley station).

For those of you who haven't heard of 18xx games, they are my absolutely favourite thing to play. The 18xx family encompasses railway themed games involving investment, track laying for railroad income, and stock market manipulation. These are long, economic games with little to no luck. If this sort of thing appeals to you 18xx should definitely be on your radar. For more information, check out these awesome videos and come join us for a game:



Learn 1846 -- A set of 5 video episodes

Please RSVP (https://www.meetup.com/ToBoardGamers/events/247151936/) if you plan to attend so that we can make sure to have enough games, poker chips, etc. on hand. Depending on interest we can get 3-4 games going.

Looking forward to seeing you guys there!

Apologies to anyone who is getting double posted by this! Wanted to get the word out :-). We are really excited to build a strong 18xx community in Toronto!

A pity you aren't doing this Saturday. I'll be in town for the weekend and I could bring Steam Over Holland which is a good streamlined 18xx game that's great for teaching.

I guess we could go with 6x18xx. Oh no it's starting to look like a MySpace username.

Next time I am in Toronto, I will see if I can fit in an 18xx game. I had a pretty good time playing Euros at Snakes and Ladders last visit.

Capable of coming and helping the teaching (and in bringing my allotment of 18XX games to fill ranks with, plus my 2 sets of chips). Just let me know if you want me there...

Sorry to bring up an old threat. Any chance there's gonna be another one of these nights planned? I'm from Kitchener and I'm really interested in learning more about and trying the 18xx genre. I'd be willing to drive pretty much anywhere in the GTA or towards London to have the opportunity to learn how to play.

Sounds great. I just subscribed to this forum to make sure I don't miss any posts regarding potential dates. Looking forward to learning how to play.
