How to Play: 1830

Board Game Blitz 8 657 subscribers

This is a quick and comprehensive video that teaches you how to play 1830, a basic 18xx game. It helps if someone in the group already knows how to play (eg. you can use this as a replacement to teaching others how to play right before you play), but all the rules are covered in case you haven’t played. Setup: https://youtu.be/XTXjmycOUpg Game Overview: 0:11 Special Stock Round: 0:30 Correction: In the Special Stock Round, play continues to the left of the last person to buy directly from the bank (a company with no bids on it), NOT the last person to win an auction. This applies to Priority Deal as well.

  • Don't discarded trains go to the bank pool rather than the supply?

  • This is the very best game explanation I have ever seen. My wife and I have watched videos for much easier games that are not nearly as easy to understand,

  • thank you. I just found the 1986 editiongame at my recycling center free shed (game was complete). Being so old the rules are lean, but this video helped a lot.

  • Incredible little video on how to play 1830. I will link this to my friends before we sit down and do a run through. Great job! Can't wait to check out the rest of your videos. Keep up the great work! (I also second the short video about the differences between this and 1846 for example)

  • Thank you Oh so much! This is what I needed to get 1830 to my groups table. Having never touched an 18xx game it's been a challenge to try to explain it enough to get it to the table to try!

  • Noticed the sneaky copy of 1817 hiding out just behind you. Probably one of the most mind-screwy games I've ever played. Love it to bits, though, but unfortunately haven't played it in a while :(
