19th Century America


You are a 19th Century entrepreneur, building your railroad empire to become the nation's dominant rail baron. Can you out maneuver, out-smart, and out-play your rivals to create the most lucrative network of inter-connected cities? Can you gain contracts from the major railroad corporations of America to use your routes for their companies? Are you willing to negotiate with smaller private railroads to make use of their tracks for your gain? It takes more than luck to succeed in 1833 .


1833 is loosely based on another famous railroad game from the big game company of the 70s. Historical errors have been maintained to carry the flavor of that original game (e.g. Pennsylvania Railroad HQ was in Philadelphia, not Altoona).


1833 is a card game where the objective is to establish the most valuable railroad network by creating routes between various North American cities of the 19th Century. Players take turns drawing cards and building their railroad connections. Players' resources are limited by number of cards he may hold in his hand, but may be increased by building increasing levels of routes. Route levels (size) are determined by the type of locomotive used for that route. Stockpiling resources (cards) is tricky and dangerous because getting rid of unwanted cards is not trivial. Players may also collect corporation cards which increase the value of the player's routes connected to that corporation's home city. Holding corporation cards count against a player's hand limit; representing the built-in cost of that corporation card. Private company cards (representing privately held railroads) may be used to connect otherwise unconnected cities, but at a cost to the value of the route for which they are used.


The game presents a constant challenge of ever changing trade-offs and risk management; keep your eyes on the routes being created by the other players so you know who else may be competing for specific city cards.
