ALL TRAINS ON TRACK WITH 1880 CHINA
We are happy to announce that the roll out of 1880 China is scheduled for later this month!
Is this your kind of track?
In 1880 China, players become railway magnates in faraway Asia. Based on 1830 (Revised Edition 2018) - Railways & Robber Barons by Francis Tresham, they experience China's railway history in a game that was designed to represent related historical events as correct as possible within its own game mechanics.
Being a classic 18XX game, the players are competing in becoming the richest. In order to gain money, they buy and sell shares of China's historical railway companies, build and expand their railway network and let trains travel on the networks. Shares of successful companies are worth more and owning them will increase the chance to win the game.
In the end, the player with the highest wealth combined from cash and shares is the winner of the game for 3-7 expert players aged 12 and up. A feast for railroads enthusiasts!
What’s new and where can I grab my copy?
The graphically revised edition of this 18XX spinoff by Leonhard Orgler and Helmut Ohley became a facelift by renowned artist Sofia Zhong. German edition will be available by end of August (for DACH region), preorders with your FLGS are open and there will be copies at the Lookout webshop later this month. Due to logistics, English edition for UK and US markets will be delivered this Autumn.
Look out for more #newsfromthelookout soon!
Have a good time,
