18OE18OE: On the Rails of the Orient Express

2 pm Saturday, 20 August
11 am Sunday, 21 August

This is a monster game covering the entire European continent. As in every 18xx game, players invest in railway companies by buying stock, with the majority stockholder of each company deciding how the company acts on the game board.

The winner is the person with the most money after adding the value of their stock holdings. The focus of the game is to make the Orient Express run — making a train travel from one of the western capital cities in Europe to Constantinople.

The full game takes 12 hours to play. HoGS member Russell Alphey will host shorter scenarios of 4-6 hours each at WGF. To sign up, click here.
