1830-Robber Barons by Avalon Hill-Yes we are retro gaming again. This brilliant and evergreen game by Francis Tresham. Steve Mathews won by ignoring the train race and running his companies with obsolescent trains scooping in cash and boosting his share prices. The other raced to get more advanced trains in order to bankrupt someone. 1830 is a great game belonging to the 18xx series. Avalon took over the franchise later in its development.
