Wolfram Janich and Michael Scharf's 18Ruhr



18Ruhr is a railway game for 3 to 6 players in the tradition of Francis Tresham’s 1830. The game is set in the Ruhr area which is called Ruhrgebiet in German. The Ruhrgebiet consists of several large, formerly industrial cities bordered by the rivers Ruhr to the south, Rhine to the west, and Lippe to the north. During the 19th century this area became the largest industrial region within Europe. The development was based on coal mines and steal industry and the building of a railway net. The latter made sure that the increased production of the core industries could be delivered to the markets and therefore contributed to the overall prosperity of the Ruhr area as well. 

18Ruhr will reflect this historical development. In addition to the traditional 18xx Railway Companies there are also coal mine companies and steel mill companies. Coal and steel industry were commonly called “Montan Industry” in Germany and therefore the name “Montan” is used when both, coal mine and steel mill companies being referred to.
