Bobit: not once all companies are bought
Bobit: nvm, it says "if there are no unowned companies left flip the game end card", I'm wrong
Jac: it’s okay
Jac: i think it was fine to call it: you were light years ahead
Jac: i’m not sure how to actually play this game well...
Toby: no plans to move rolling stock or enhance it
yoyoson: Is “rollback” only an option for the game’s creator?
Bobit: To anyone new to this site, there has been some success setting up live games with strangers on 18xx.games, usually with players new to rolling stock, so feel free to do that even if you don't play on 18xx.games.
Akado: All right, where's my shining star?
Akado: Supposed to be leading me to the land of teaching this game, or generally astray, not sure which
starchitect: do you see 1407?
starchitect: In New games. no fancy color coding
Akado: One min
Akado: In like Flynn
Boxer: Is there a way to update the email address you use with your account?
Michael Logan: related, is there a way to update username?
weisswurst: How can I change my password? The only way I see is through Forgot Password on the login screen, but it does not work. I got the message "Password reset sent", but I do not receive any email. Tried several times, ensuring I entered the corrrect email address. And yes, checked my spam folder.
weisswurst: Oh wait, they arrive after twenty minutes or (?).
Boxer: @weisswurst, cannot say. I opened a ticket for allow for an email change, if your password reset didn't work I will open one for that as well.
weisswurst: @Boxer, thanks, I have opened an issue already.
Boxer: Alright, sounds good.
AlexRockwell: I also had an issue with password reset. email took 4 hrs to arrive
Richard Northey: ......
TylerG: Anyone up for a live game?
Christopher Peterson: @tyler if i recall correctly it plays pretty well at two. Been awhile for me but I would play heads up.
mtsay: sign me up
Christopher Peterson: that works 2
mtsay: do people normally play with V2 rules?
Christopher Peterson: i havent played in forever so I just wanted to play base
TylerG: Same with me unless that was a deal breaker for other people
TylerG: Current new games show a even split
mtsay: I'd like to play with base. I have yet to learn the rule differences in V2.
TylerG: works for us.
Christopher Peterson: 1505
TylerG: Do we want to Roll with 3 or wait a bit for a possible 4th
Christopher Peterson: up 2 u
Christopher Peterson: go with 3?
TylerG: Not much activity here, so yeah
mtsay: let's start
Boxer: @toby can you end game 1397, we had a player leave. Thank you
theagricolan: @Jonathan, do you wanna come over to our game (1515)?
sickomodelaney: Hi everyone happy new years
sickomodelaney: One of my goals this year is to finally get this monstrosity played
sickomodelaney: Is there a discord y’all gather at to discuss outside of this chat box?
theagricolan: I’d like to know as well. I found players on the 18xx discord, looking for players channel.
theagricolan: Or was it Slack? I don’t remember.
sickomodelaney: The official one for 18xx.games is a Slack channel for sure, I joined that one as well.
sickomodelaney: ^im sure ill see you there ;)
sickomodelaney: Well if anyone knows... lmk!
sickomodelaney: plz :)
Elephantasy: It's been a week now and still none of the games I've joined have started
Elephantasy: is the site dead?
Brandon Bashein: Not sure just joined your three player game
Venser: @Elephantasy - I joined the three player game as well.
Venser: Hoping to find a handful of players to keep this game on repeat as my physical copy won't be seeing the table for some time.
Brandon Bashein: @venser I'd like to play on repeat I just learned the game and playing locally probably wont happen
Elephantasy: wow thanks guys
SteephieWonder: It's really unfortunate that this chat doesn't show any timestamps..
SteephieWonder: A lot of games are full but not starting?
SteephieWonder: These messages are 18-01-2021 for future reference :P
theagricolan: @elephantasy looks like those games were created back in August and October. If it’s been that long it’s possible the creators aren’t checking this site anymore.
theagricolan: FWIW I’m also interested in playing this on repeat, but I live in GMT+8, so it’d probably be pretty slow.
theagricolan: Time stamp: 2021.01.20 (GMT+0 01:15)
Toby: i deleted old games
theagricolan: sorry @Toby, I meant the people who created those games, not you, the site creator. Thanks for the awesome work you’ve done here!
Bonzarello: are the rules v2.2 the ones used in Rollig Stock Stars from All Abroad Games?
thomb: Good question! That is my understanding - the Corps have special powers so believe it’s RSS.
sickomodelaney: my message was from around New Years if you couldn't tell (:
Zegrith: Hi, I'm a newbie. I've created game a 3p Game 1593. I'm in Spain (GMT+1) If anyone interested, please feel free to join.
thomb: count me in, also pretty new to this
thomb: We decided to call game #1570 - is there a way to 'end' or delete it?
cory peacock: so, is the difference between V2 rules and Rolling Stock Stars simply the Corporations special powers?
Venser: No purple companies. Order of events within a round is different.
cory peacock: purple is in v1, but is in neither v2 nor RSS. am i correct? also, between v2 and RSS, I cannot discern a different order of events. can you point me to it, please.
theagricolan: In v2 (RSS) issuing shares and floating companies are phases 1 and 2 of the turn instead of being at the end.
theagricolan: I’m sorry, that’s backwards. In v2 issuing shares and floating companies come at the end of the turn, not at the beginning. Functionally it changes nothing, really
theagricolan: v2 and RSS are interchangeable. the designer has referred to RSS by both.
thomb: @rcog I've joined your game. FYI I'm in Europe, so won't be around to take turns in your evenings. If that's a pain let me know,.
rcog: @thomb EST is not a hard requirement, no worries. Just trying to set expectations and gather european night owls and west coast early birds :-)
DanielB: Venser, the order of events within a round is not different in Stars
Andrew: Game 1596 can be deleted.
thomb: Likewise 1570 ^
Venser: Add 1555 to the list as well.
DanielB: Toby - and you can delete 1274, thanks
nomad: And 1399 as well, thank you.
JonS: Is it possible to play the 2-player variant where each player controls two investors?
JonS: Toby - you can delete 1623 also. We wanted to play a 2-player game but didn't realize that was an unsupported variant
matosowalker: sorry, I set up a game and didn't mean to. Can 1627 be deleted, please?
Richard Northey: Is anyone working on an AI for this game, with post game analysis?
thomb: Richard - see github (link in footer) for the code and current issues. I don't think much is going on in the way of development at the minute. But I expect Toby is open to contributions.
Zegrith: @DanielB I'm joining 1635 as it seems 1631 it is not progressing appropriately.
DanielB: Zegrith. I agree. Thx for joining. Do you know v1 yet?
thomb: I've also joined. Don't know v1 yet. Feel free to kick me out if you prefer fewer players / non-newbs!
Zegrith: DanielB. I've read the rules but never played this version. Please, feel to kick me out as well if you don't want newbies.
DanielB: Toby, please delete RS games 1631, 1274, 1635. Thank you
