Blackwater Station : 1899 Version 2
Dirk Clemens has released a 1899 variant which I had
incorporated into my release of the 1899 gamekit. I have updated the
gamekit components and map to reflect the changes and have called the new
release Version 2.
The components (Shares, Private Company certificates and Trains)
have been slightly redesigned, the Map updated and Stock Market Table
changed to reflect my latest style as well. Some of the tile numbers have
changed to avoid confusion over duplicate numbers between 1899 and
The Version 2 changes are as follows.
- The VPR and BMP Private Companies have been 'swopped'.
- Four new tiles, #981 to #984, have been introduced.
- The Tt home base now has an upgrade path.
- Hex D6 upgrades have been expanded.
- OO tile upgrades have been expanded.
- Tiles #91 to #99 are now called #991 to #999.
- A Tile Upgrade Chart and Start Packet layout are also included.
