John's 18XX Site -- 1829 Section

1829 South and 1829 North Home Page

This part of the site is intended to provide the player in my e-mail games of 1829 with a quick reference to the main points of the game.

Players should have access to a copy of the original rules (1982 version) and game.
These pages are not a substitute for the Game and Rulebook and indeed are not intended to be.

The game rulebook (1982 version) will always take precedence over this site and other rule books for the determination of rule resolution.
However note that the House Rules/Guidance Notes make some exceptions to this. See them.
Note that there are some significant differences between the 1982 rule book and the earlier 1974 rule book.

You are referred to Blackwater Station Platform for rule clarifications and generally loads of good info about the 18XX games in general.

Visit Blackwater Station Platform.

Keith Thomasson maintains a good website which includes the 18XX Rules Difference list which indicates the differences between the different 18XX games.

Visit the Rules Difference Section of Keith's site.

Keith does have downloadable maps and tile sheets, but take care with the tile sheets as he uses his own orientation codes which do not always agree with those that I use.

The maps on this site are based on those created by Rob Thomasson and are used with his permission.
