BOARD18 is a tool to help people play 18xx style games via Email.

The BOARD18 game session associated with a play by email 18xx game will display the game board and the stock market for the game. It allows the players to place tiles and tokens on the game board and to place and move tokens on the stock market.

BOARD18 runs on a web server and it is accessed via the web browser running on a players computer.
Only players who are assigned/added to the game can update the BOARD18 game session for that game.

A number of applications beside BOARD18 are needed to play an 18xx game via Email.
An overview of one way to set up and run a 'play by email' 18xx game can be found here.
