Kid, don't threaten me. There are worse things than death, and uh, I can do all of them.


Ham Wrangler



Recruiting for a play by forums of 1889. Looking for ONE player, some slots were already reserved on Discord. I wouldn't mind alternates, I will be aggressively replacing anyone who disappears (48+ hours with no post or heads-up)

Since there is only one slot, if there is a ton of interest, I will decide by lottery.

Seating order:
1.taser rates
2. CthulhuDreams
3. Fellis
4. SoftNum

Rulebook: https://secure.deepthoughtgames.com.../1889/Rules.pdf
Spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet...dit?usp=sharing

Going to be playing on board18 so make an account at http://dev2.board18.org/board18Main.php if you don't have one.

If I pretend to be Cthulhu no one will know I'm a baseball robot.


Pretty keen for this - I have no idea what I am doing (my only 18xx experience is SR1 and 2 of the 1846 game also in this PBF forum), so I look forward to getting wrecked.

Feel free to post any questions in the thread as you are reading the rules! There are a ton of little differences from 1846.

1862(The one coming from GMT) is the multi-share dumping game, where you can literally dump any company into receivership, imo. Thread title misleading.

My understanding of the rules is if I now buy A for 20, the auctions cascade and everything except the ferry sells?

Assuming that's not a game breaking mistake that's throwing the game to taser, I will do that.

I donít think Iím completely happy with it, but ok! I donít think you are throwing the game to taser, but he is certainly in a strong position

CuthulhuDreams buys private A for $20! Auction cascades!
Fellis gets B for $35
Softnum gets C for $45
Taser rates gets D for $55
