After the convent in Spodek

We are after the big board game event, here in Poland (Katowice), during which, courtesy of the organizers, we presented 1836jr. 18 people were playing this great game for the first time and we could see what we needed to improve in its graphics and what works very well. All the people we met told us: I didn’t know 18xx games were so easy! Thank you to everyone for every kind word. Report from the first day available on the website: Rails on Bords

I love this game because of the gameplay time

Today I will tell you about the game play time and why it was so important, especially at the beginning of our adventure with 18xx. Because now we are not afraid of any playtime anymore, no matter if it is 3, 5 or 8 hours. If the title is good and worth playing, then we have separate meetings for these games once a month, then we play all day. A few years ago, when my 18xx adventure was just the beginning, everyone around was ‘euro player’, we only met in the evenings and at best we had 5-6 hours to… Czytaj dalej

Train cards

We already have the train cards ready for the game. Jarek tried very hard and it is a really small work of art. It’s a pity the train cards are so small!

Why this title?

This title made us a sort of infected with everything related to 18xx. We played several other games at the same time: 1830, 1846, 1889, but when we faced the choice of what to play, we often chose 1836jr. Why? The game runs a little slowly at the beginning, because not all players have money to start a company, so only two or three companies can operate at the beginning of the game. In this way, we slowly move from one phase to the next one, and such an arduous climate puts our vigilance to sleep. Meanwhile, in phase 3… Czytaj dalej

How the Atlantic locomotive Type 12 became the hero of our cover?

We’re introducing piece from the game we’re working on. This is a box cover design for 1836jr. For a long time we have been thinking which train to present, but finally our choice fell on a locomotive that was used by Belgian railways shortly before World War II. During this period, technological progress forced the search for more and more perfect and bolder solutions. In response to the need to reduce travel times and the fashion for modern machine constructions, French engineers André Huet and Raoul Notesse developed a real miracle of technology – the Type 12 Atlantic locomotive. It… Czytaj dalej
