1830 is a railroad game set in the northeastern United States and southern Canada. You assume the identity of a railroad
“Baron” and act as “President” of one or more Railroad Corporations. Your goal is to earn money. Money is earned mainly
through owning shares of stock in the eight Railroad Corporations. Stock shares make money in two ways-they can provide
ready cash via dividend payments, and they can increase in value. If you’re the single largest stockholder in a Railroad
Corporation, you become its President and operate its railroad, ideally, but not necessarily, for the benefit of all
stockholders. The game ends when either: 1. A Baron goes bankrupt; or 2. The Bank runs out of money. The winner is the
wealthiest Baron at game end.

The computer players will always collude above the minimum setting, so I recommend playing with 2 or more humans who can collude back.
A very good computor version of a great board game. Highly recommend
You do need to know the rules to play so if its new to you read the manual
