1830 is one of the more famous 18xx games. One of the things some gamers enjoy about this game is that the game has no 'chance' element. That is to say, if players wanted to play two games with the same moves, the outcome would be the same also.

This game takes the base mechanics from Tresham's 1829, and adds several new elements. Players are seeking to make the most money by buying and selling stock in various companies located on a eastern United States map. The stock manipulation aspect of the game is widely considered as one of the best. The board itself is actually a fairly abstract hexagonal system, with track tiles put on top of the hexes. Plus every 18xx title adds new and different elements to the game. This game includes private rail companies and an extremely vicious, 'robber baron' oriented stock market. A game is over when the bank runs out of money or one player is forced to declare bankruptcy, and the player with the greatest personal holdings wins.

The 2011 version of 1830 was published by Mayfair Games together with Lookout Games of Germany. This publication was made under license from Francis Tresham in co-operation with Bruce Shelley (the original 1830 developer). This version comes with rules and components for Francis Tresham's original classic design, a faster-playing basic game, and new variants from some of the world's best railroad game developers.
