How to Play

The game is set in 19th century Vienna and revolves around the development of its tramway system. The objective is to become the most successful transportation company by building tracks, expanding routes and delivering goods across the city. Sounds simple enough, right? Wrong! The game is full of twists, turns and strategic decisions that keep you on your toes throughout.

At the start of the game, each player is given a unique role with different abilities and resources. This adds an element of asymmetry and replayability to the game, as you can try out different strategies with each role. As you progress through the game, you must carefully manage your resources, make smart investments and outmaneuver your opponents to come out on top.

One of my favorite aspects of ‘1840: Vienna Tramways’ is the combination of luck and skill involved. The random event cards can throw a wrench in your plans or give you a much-needed boost, making every game different and exciting.

But even if you’re not a fan of heavy strategy games, I would still recommend giving this one a try. The game offers different levels of complexity and can be enjoyed by casual gamers as well.

One thing that immediately caught my attention was the beautiful artwork and design of the game board. It truly transports you to another time and place, adding to the immersive experience of the game. But don’t be fooled by its elegant appearance, this game is not for the faint of heart.
