... you may be interested in supporting the publication of my next game - 1862: Railway Mania in the Eastern Counties. This is now available on Kickstarter here:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1992425277/mike-huttons-...

This game is also known as 18EA, and has been under development for the last 8 years. It's a game for 2 to 8 players which typically takes about 4-5 hours to play.

If you have friends who may be interested, please pass these details on to them. The more supporters we get, the better the edition we will be able to produce for you.

Thanks in advance,

Mike.

If you're funded, is this going to go better than the 1860 2nd edition pre-orders?

Someone already suggested it, and with the discounts, by the time you would get it shipped to your house, even if you organize ordering 10 copies, it comes out to a $10 discount max... not worth the effort/risk involved just to maybe save 10 dollars...

For what it's worth, I don't think it's a lot to ask for a small-run 18xx game. A ready-to-play medium sized 18xx from Deep Thought Games runs to $100.

It's also worth noting that you get a lot in the box:

20 company charters
160 share certificates
36 double-sided train cards
200 company tokens
8 Phase change cards
30 or so train permit cards
train warranty cards
small station tokens
28-page rulebook
Board
Money

and so on. Component-wise I'd put it somewhere between 1817 and 1841, which cost $216 and about $160 (IIRC) from DTG for a ready-to-play copy. I actually think the price is pretty competitive for what you get, even after P&P.

Its priced competitively with its peers. When I buy Double O games and ship them from Europe, I'm paying this and more. When I order from DTG, this is the price point. That's just what it costs to obtain a low print-run 18xx title, let alone importing one.

I'm excited to try this one!

Will these be produced ready-to-play with everything mounted and with lamination?

Yeah, $110 is normal for this kind of thing. There are several groups organizing group buys with local delivery, or pickup at events like the Portland 18xx Tournament.

The idea is to get these done using similar methods as those used in 1861 - everything gets lithographically printed, so no lamination is necessary. About the only things you'll need to do is punch card components like certificates out, and put stickers on the tokens. Pretty much the same as you'd expect in any professionally printed game these days.

If that is the case, then the price for DTG's 1817 is $80 and $68 for 1841.

The unlaminated DTG kits are not the same production as the 1861 game.

No, that would be $134 for a comparable copy of 1817 and $103 for 1841 from DTG.

Amusing. I can't tie to either of your numbers. i end up between you. Want to say what options you chose?

Everything cut, money, two part box, all optional bits, unmounted tokens (but with the wood blanks), no lamination.

Even at that, lithographic finish is different than the unlaminated cards/tiles that would be used for comparison with DTGs kits.

Anyway, I don't get the whining over the price. If you don't want it, don't buy it.

That is weird.
This time I got $93 for 1817 - no cuts, no lamination, quad-fold map, custom box, wood unmounted tokens, include money (which is cut unlike the 1860 money), no variant parts. I could say that as describe we could take out the wood tokens which would drop it another $10 to $83.

1841 - same options come to $86. (must have inverted the numbers)

I never said anything about the price. I'm objecting to them comparing them to "ready-to-play" from DTG. I came pull that out of the shipping box and set it up to play immediately. These you cannot.
