Special Games

18 India — A TraXX game that has “made the cut” on GMT’s P500. The game reimagines some of Tresham’s unique mechanics from “1829 Mainline”, but without the in-game randomness of that title. You do have to think differently when playing 18 India.

To read more about 18 India, including design notes, please visit the GMT website: https://www.gmtgames.com/p-948-18-india.aspx

18EB: Lhazaar — An 18XX game set in the Dungeons and Dragons Eberron fantasy campaign world. The world of Eberron has trains – but it also has ships and airships! 18EB: Lhazaar combines these three types of conveyances into an 18XX experience.

1868Wyoming — An 18XX game of boom and bust in Wyoming. Authored by John Harres, this game combines 18XX mechanics with Wyoming’s amazing railroad and mining history.

If you are bringing a special game or prototype and would like TraXX to list it here, please contact us with the details.
