Description of 1869
1869 is a fun 17th century trading game that is similar to its contemporary High Seas Trader but with more emphasis on trading and planning routes than on naval navigation.
The game also (perhaps unwittingly) borrows concepts from Sid Meier's classic Railroad Tycoon to good effect, such as random special shipping assignments that will earn you extra cash if you complete it in time. Plan your trade routes, organize a fleet, and finances carefully-- this game is no cakewalk :) Definitely a great game that finally put underrated developed Max Design on the map.

Good game although Max Design always publishes unfinished sims. Search for the German-English translated manual and you will be rewarded with a great essay on colonial history, international commerce, and reverence for the ships that made Europe and America masters of the world.

If you're having trouble saving, as I first was, You must first type a title for your save-game in the middle grey bar of the save section, then when you press save, it will respond, and show your save file in red I believe.

here's a guide for beginners. you have to right-click on the little buildings and pay them to build you a ship at the start, but this article explains it better (not mine) http://1869game.blogspot.de/

I liked this game a lot in the past. Nowadays I am playing an online rpg called Pirates Glory that reminds me of this game. If you liked 1869, you will most probably like Pirates Glory too.
The game can be found at http://www.piratesglory.com/
