It is expected to begin shipping at the beginning of March with a street date of Thursday, March 17. The game, designed by Francis Tresham, will contain the rules and components from the original classic design as well as a host of exciting new variants. The 2-sided map (one side with a classic look, the other tailored to the additional material) lets players develop the Eastern U.S. as they build and invest in a railroad empire.
1830™ covering the years 1830 to present. Players become the stockholders of America's first railroad corporations. Since the largest shareholder becomes president, players compete for control of the strongest firms. Presidents generate revenue by building track and buying and operating trains, regardless of shareholders' needs. Pay heed to the volatile stock market and strive to invest in flourishing companies in order to earn healthy dividends. Players will try to buy stock in corporations that are rising in value, collect strong, and sell before the stock values drop.
1830™ contains, in addition to the original rules and components, a faster-playing basic game and a host of exciting new variants from some of the world’s best railroad game designers. It is suitable for 3 – 6 players, age 12+, and will have a $70.00 MSRP.
