Podcast Episode 78: 18xx Revisited

Marc, Orion, and Ben have been playing all sorts of 18xx games over the past year, and they’re here to compare and contrast the five they’ve played the most. How much variation is there within this sub-sub-genre of game? What kind of dynamics do different rule variations create? Which is the best starter game? What makes 1817 “bananas-insane”? Find out this and more.

If you do not have any experience with 18xx games, we recommend checking out Episode 52 for more of an introduction to the genre.
