DESCRIPTION

1870, another version of the critically acclaimed 18xx railroad game system simulates the fortunes of some of the railroads that served the Trans-Mississippi area in this post-war period.

1870 is a railroad building and investment game. The railroad building part of the game is played on the map as companies build track, buy trains, and run those trains along routes they have built. Players are the presidents of the railroad companies and direct those companies as they choose.

Companies build track by laying tiles representing the track and the cities on the hexagonal grid that is
superimposed on the map. Cities are represented by large or small circles or by a black cross-bar on the
tiles. The value of each city is printed in a small circle next to the city. Companies buy trains, build track, and then run their trains on the track they have built.

The investment part of the game is based on the stock market. Players buy and sell shares of railroad
companies.  Buying shares in flourishing
companies can earn large dividends for a player. Selling shares in other players' companies reduces the value of the remaining shares in those companies. Like the real stock market, players try to buy stock in companies that are rising in value and sell before the value drops.

The player who accumulates the most wealth wins the game. A game played by players familiar with the rules should require about four hours.
