18xx a go go! (Learning! All welcome!)

I'm on call for work this Saturday, and need to be near a computer at all times. So let's play 18xx in the meantime, and cross our fingers that the site doesn't explode!

These will be some easier/shorter 18xx, so if you haven't played before, or have only played once or twice, this will be a good opportunity to learn!

18xx are long mathy games about buying and selling shares in companies, managing capital and equipment within those companies, and managing inherent liabilities in what you own. Expect the games to take between 3-5 hours.

As always, Joe might prefer to host, and I will allow him to! :)

    Unfortunately, something cropped up, and I have to defer my plans to learn 18xx :(.

    For those who are new, please arrive between 10:45 and 11 a.m. We will start explaining the rules promptly, and do not wish to repeat ourselves. The rules will take about 30 minutes - 45 minutes.

    If you are going to be late, please let us know ahead of time. If you are more than 10 minutes late without advance notice do not expect any rules to be repeated.

    Maybe we can convince the experienced players who aren't explaining the rules to grab us some coffee or something. :)

    The first two entries here are a nice primer of what to expect: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/50903/so-youre-thinking-about-giving-18xx-a-try

    You could also read all of the 1889 rulebook here, but this is *not* required:

    Looks like I'll need to bring an extra (card) table.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
