1830 2nd Edition From Mayfair this October

Hot off the Press from Mayfair Games is 1830: The Northeast US, the 2nd edition. The game should be arriving at retailers in late October, so let’s find out what it is like operating a railroad way back when.

Build America’s Great Railways

1830… It is the dawn of the “Age of Railroading” in America. You’re a wealthy investor and speculator betting that the new technology will revolutionize transport. Commerce will no longer depend on rutted roads and slow canals. Instead, it will ride the rails on swift, powerful “Iron Horses.”

1830 is an acclaimed railroad investment and building game covering the years 1830 to present. You and your fellow players become the stockholders of America’s first railroad corporations. Since the largest shareholder becomes president, you compete for control of the strongest fi rms.

As president, generate revenue by building track and buying and operating trains—regardless of shareholders’ needs. Meanwhile, you pay heed to the volatile stock market. You strive to invest in flourishing companies in order to earn healthy dividends. You try to buy stock in corporations that are rising in value, collect strong, and sell before the stock values drop.

1830 contains rules and components for Francis Tresham’s original classic design, as well as a host of exciting new variants. The 2-sided map lets you develop the Eastern U.S. using different art. So, get ready to be a railroad baron. Start investing and building.
