Prototypes of the new 18xx games appear every now and then and very few of them make my heart beat faster. Recently, however, Marcin from Olkusz (he has the same name as me) came across a title, which I decided to mention a few words about, because the game evokes in me an irresistible desire to get to know and play this mostrum.
The game covers the whole of Japan and I don’t know if the size of the tiles you know from 1822 will be enough to put the map on my table. I think that 18JR is at least twice as long as 1822. There are as many large companies in the game as in 1817 (that’s 20), but there are also small companies and a whole lot of private companies. And another color of the tracks has arrived: the blue one (after the grey).
The game is in the prototype phase, and you can play it now on Tabletop Simulator.
