Product Description

1839, The Netherlands. The new railways are the way to get rich. Invest your money in the best railway companies, become the President of one or more companies and lead them to become the best earning companies of the game. Build new track and stations, buy the right trains and push the stock value to new heights. Who will become the most successful investor? Steam over Holland is an economics game in which the players invest in and control railway companies.

The gameplay uses the same basic mechanics as other 18xx games. However the focus of the game is more on the operation of the companies, than on the stockmarket. The goal in the development of this game was to create a short 18xx game which is also suited for players who are new to the 18xx system. For this reason the game was kept reasonably straightforward and there are no extras, like mergers, loans etc.
