Kevin Bacon’s 18Ireland Experience

Time: Sunday 12 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Description: 18Ireland represents a rather different take on the 18xx system. Ireland is a poor country, but there is no lack of enthusiasm for railways among investors. Up to 13 5-share companies will start in a random sequence. Some of these companies will become successful, others, as a result of under investment, isolation or poor timing will struggle to survive. All is not lost for the stragglers, however. A unique shareholder voting mechanism allows companies to merge into 10-share companies(sometimes against their director’s wishes) with their more or less successful neighbors.
