1830 is a game of railroads and "robber barons." Players are seeking to make the most money by buying and selling stock in various share companies located on the Eastern United States map. The stock manipulation aspect of the game is widely-regarded as one of the best. The board itself is actually a fairly abstract hexagonal system, with track tiles placed on top of the hexes. This game features private rail companies and an extremely vicious, 'robber baron' oriented stock market. A game ends when the bank runs out of money, and the player with the greatest personal holdings wins.

This particular copy also includes the Coalfields Variant from Rail Gamer Magazine featuring an extended board, additional tiles and rules. This difficult to find supplement has been partially cut out, and the board assembled. Its parts are comingled with the base game.
