18EU is a railroad operations and share trading board game in the 18xx series, published by Deep Thought Games in 2004. The game was designed by David G.D. Hecht, and is set in the heart of Europe, reaching from Paris and London to Rome, Budapest and Warsaw. 18EU is a compact game, played on four mappanels. Unlike most 18XX games, there are no private companies, and share companies may only be started indirectly. When the game starts, fifteen minor companies are auctioned off. These companies represent regional or private-sector rail companies. There are eight possible share companies, and at least one minor company must be merged into a share company to form it.
