I couldn't find a generic 18xx place to post this, so I figured I'd post it in the granddaddy of all 18xx. If there's a better place to post it, let me know and I'll try to figure out how to move it.

Two questions:

1. Is there a phone/computer app where you can quickly calculate end game stats once add'l share buying/selling, track/token changing is finished? Basically I'd see it as entering number (& name) of companies, current stock value of companies, current revenue per company, number (& name) of players, current worth of each player, number of shares owned of each company for each player, and total money remaining in the bank. Then the calculator could provide end game net worth of each player. To be generic, there'd need to be settings for: (1) multiple share value increases per OR, (2) whether game ends when share value reaches some max value, (3) whether share value increases during SR if all shares owned by player, probably other stuff as well. Does something like this exist and if so, where?

2. I think I saw a document (or a weblink?) at one point that summarized all the differences between all the 18xxs (e.g., partial capitalization/full capitalization, shares in bank pool pay revenue, etc.) Does such a document exist or did I imagine it? If it exists, anyone know where?

Yes, I know a proper 18XX tile should have a tile number.

The generic place to post is the 18xx family forum, by the way.

There are a fair number of 18xx spreadsheets there, though you need to enter revenue for each company for each round, because they always change a bit, at least for some companies.

It's also often possible to spend money, even at the end, if you want to stretch the bank breaking just a hair longer...

Yes, look in the 1830 file section... there are several spreadsheets. I expect you can find spread sheets for most of the 18xx titles.

You can also play the game with Rails in "no map" mode. It will do all the math, keep track of stocks, company money etc. Although, not EVERY 18xx game is supported.

Point of order: 1830 is NOT the granddaddy of all 18xx. 1829 (Southern Board if you must) is. shake

Point taken, but then I'd say 1829 is the great grandfather or something. 1830 has spawned so many 18xx games and is still considered one of the best of the 18xx and thus, has the most active and prolific forum.

Yes, perhaps, by date. But when it comes to forum posts, it's not. 1829 has 1 thread with 12 posts. 1830 has 4490 posts.

To put it simply, without 1829 there would have been no 1830.

Furthermore, in terms of development, 1853 predates 1830 as well.

You can find spreadsheets in a number of places:
