Re: quad-fold map boards

Ok, the prices for the new quad-fold boards will be a $15 option, and the
new 2-piece box will be $6 extra.  Note that these prices will come down as
we get rid of the existing pouchboard and the old 2-piece boxes, eventually
both will be the default options.

If you want to upgrade existing games, the prices will be the same as above
-- note that the quad-fold board will not fit in the old 2-piece box, so
unless you have the 1-piece box you will need to order one of the new
2-piece boxes.  For upgrade requests, please email me directly and include
the serial numbers of any boxes you want to replace.

Re: quad-fold map boards

Hi John,

Please could you post the measurements of the new boards and new boxes to the list?

Best wishes,

Dave.

Replacement boxes

I recently acquired some older 18xx games I'd been looking for, and would like to do some work to get them into
better condition.

Does anyone know where I can find really nice boxes.  I'm thinking quality of Lookout's 1853, but all in
white?  Looking for a standard size, but everything I find is a garment box that collapses, and I was hoping
for nicer.

Thoughts?  Links?

Re: Chattanooga 2012

Hanno:

I just got back from a vacation and saw your post. That is great about the Chattanooga promo and I would
certainly like some to distribute.

I made it to the Lucca (Italy) Comics and Games last weekend for one day. It is a huge convention featuring
video games, board and card games, comics, anime, music and more.  It is certainly no Essen in terms of
boardgames at least and I did not see any copies of the new 1830 for sale there.

I need to update my Yahoo group in the next few days. It is a public group listed as:

http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/chattanoogarailgamingchallenge/

We have a featured 18xx game every year and the new 1830 is on my short list as a 2011 release. I would be happy to
distribute any promos you might be able to provide. You can send them to me at:

Mark Derrick
8601 Glenaire Drive
Chattanooga, TN 37416
USA

If you ever have considered attending, we'd love to have you and could maybe help you with a place to stay.
Feel free to contact me off List if you need any more info.

I do have a new email address. It is railbaron at epbfi dot net.

Thanks,
Mark

Re: Re: A new 18EU Alpine Variant

Folks, I just saw this, and it reminds me that there had been interest expressed in the 18EU variants created
by our Chicago group; I'll work on getting these uploaded to the Files section of the 18XX Yahoo Group. -TWHJr

I'm wondering if anyone has playtest results?  I find Hannaford's idea appealing, but the details need to be
worked out.

Re: A new 18EU Alpine Variant

We've played twice with the Hannaford variant.  The second time consensus was to give one terrain-free tile
lay only to the following three minors: #5, 10, and 11.  These companies may lay one tile in a mountain or
rough hex without paying the terrain cost, and it otherwise a normal tile lay on the company's operating
round.  

Additionally, this privilege is inherited by any corp that the private merges with.  It is easy to forget
which company still has the free tile, so I made three M tokens, that sit on the company charters until used,
to represent the tile lay.

Re: A new 18EU Alpine Variant

We've played it twice as well.  I don't think it affected the games very much (which is probably a good thing)
but it did allow more options in combining minors and laying track.  In one game we had a route running South
from Hamburg straight to Rome.

In the first game we definitely gave the special build option to the six minors that David suggested.  In the
second, we might have limited it to the four southern companies (15, 5, 10, 11), on the grounds that 13 and 14
were desirable enough without.  Our group also thought that any track built using this power should have to
actually cross an alpine hex from N/NW/NE to S/SW/SE.

We're not very experienced players so I'd be interested to hear from other people who try this variant.

Dave.

Re: 18XX at GCOM

I assume it is modesty rather than forgetfulness that prevents you from 
sharing the results with us ;->

I'm pleased that Mark was there, I had not realized he'd made the long trip.

What were your impressions of the 18NYC proto?

RE: 18XX at GCOM (mostly to David)

David,

NYC is innovative.  It has no share limit overall and no 60% rule.  So there is a great deal of pressure not to
fall behind.  There is also a lot of scope for action and evil plans.

Currently I find it frustrating because just when I think I understand it and have a theory about how to win,
Pierre (or John Tamplin...or perhaps both) change the rules and I find that my winning strategy no longer is.

Playing with Mark and Jeremy was probably good for Pierre because he got input from an excellent player and a designer.

It is also interesting to see how a tweak in the rules design to fix one problem can cause unexpected
complications in a seemingly unrelated area.  I can see how design probably requires a lot of patience.

I think Rick told me he gets frustrated play-testing OE because they never finish a game and every time they
play there is a new set of rules.

-Bruce

PS Tom McCorry also played Friday night.  He won the first NYC game and Pierre won the 2nd.  Jeremy won the first
1880 game.
