  • 1830 and 1873 over

    Finished more play-by-email 18xx games. Four-player 1830 was a disaster — well, to everybody but Kimmo, who won 2187-834-703-426 after a bankruptcy. The three of us were all close to bankruptcy, but it was Neeme who eventually pulled the trigger. He could’ve passed a train between two companies, but there’s not much point to it, […]

  • Through the Ages and 18xx

    I’ve been playing some Through the Ages recently on Boardgaming Online. Turns out it’s one of those games I like less the more I play. The way the civilizations are built and everything is abstracted I still consider brilliant, but I’m getting more and more frustrated in the military aspects of the game. It’s the […]

  • 1860 PBEM game

    I played a game of PBEM 1860 with Justin Rebelo. It was one of our quick games, played mostly in couple of sessions over just few days. Justin did a great session report on Geek, check that out if you’re interested. It was an exciting match: Justin got some early lead, I took over and […]

Using Google Docs and the actual board worked well, though we had couple of tile mismatches because of careless notation and mistakes. Despite time zone differences, we had several longer […]

  • 1825 Unit 3 pbem, over

    The play-by-email game of 1825 Unit 3 with Justin Rebelo is over (see announcement). We finished the game today, when I resigned on stock round 8. I was behind and Justin was starting minor companies so he would have four directorships (CR, GSWR, GNS and M&C). I had NBR, which wasn’t doing too well. CR […]

  • PBEM 1825 Unit 3

    I’ve started another play-by-email game. I’m playing 1825 Unit 3 against Justin Rebelo. Since there’s no handy electronic solution to managing the game, we’re using the tried and tested method of having the game board spread out while the game lasts. Unit 3 has compact enough a board to make it possible. There’s also a […]
