18xx reduxx

Saturday Sept 21 looks like the next feasible date for another epic 18xx session.

We very much welcome new players, but these games are definitely not for everybody.  Please read carefully if you are new:

The 18xx games are extremely difficult economic games where you will calculate 60% of $230 about 437 times an hour. Calculators are recommended. Many people complain "it feels like work." It is, however, an extremely powerful, deep, and flexible system.  Expect an intro-game to take at least 3-5 hours, possibly as many as 7, with more experienced-player games often taking longer.

If you need rules explanations, please be sure to show up roughly on time - or notify us in advance if you are going to be late.

-If you arrive after 11:30 without communication, you will not be able to play
-You must be able to commit to staying to at least 6 p.m. - the game might take that long, and leaving in the middle can ruin the game.
-Probably two tables, one for newer players, one for more experienced players.  1880 or 1817 seem like good candidates for repeat plays if we get enough advanced players.

    I'd really love to do an 1854. It's been about 3 years since I last played it, but it was one of the earlier games I cut my xx teeth with. I'd love to see how it holds up for me. It's not too long, I recall, maybe 1848-ish length.

    Cool, I was going to set one up for that weekend myself.

    Good edit on the intro, btw - I think this should become the stock intro (pun intended).
