Description Edit | History

Until the second half of the 18th century, most people thought that larger barges could not navigate the Ruhr River. However, the convenient route meant that attempts were conducted to transport the coveted coal resource along the river at the beginning of the industrial revolution. The first coal barges reached Kettwig in spring 1770. A little while later, barges reached the Rhine mouth at Ruhrort. The empty barges were drawn upstream by horses afterwards.

However, the Ruhr was not generally navigable in this time. Large dams at mills and low dams for fishing were common. At these spots the coal had to be transferred from one barge to the next. This decreased the quality of the coal considerably – sometimes only "coal dust" reached Ruhrort. Only the building of 14 locks between Witten and Ruhrort changed this.

The Ruhr remained an important route for coal until the end of the 19th century. At that time the railway superseded it.

In Ruhrschifffahrt 1769-1890, 2-4 players transport and sell coal along the Ruhr river in Germany as profitably as possible. Progress markers are helping them. The position of each player's Ruhr barge is most important; the player furthest upriver is allowed to conduct his action first in each phase of a game turn.

77 Unofficial Ruhrschifffahrt 1769-1890 English Rules Rewrite
Rewrite of the English rules for greater clarity and ease of reference, uploaded with permission of publisher. Removes historical notes, rearranges content, and omits component descriptions. It incorporates clarifications from the FAQ, the BGG forums, and private mail with the publisher. I suggest English-only speakers should read through these rules to learn the game, but also consult the original rules for component descriptions and historical context.

13 Board Icons
Print on label stock, cut out, and add to your board. Includes city icons (since background icons are so hard to make out), as well as a set of phase icons I created. I use the phase icons to help remind me what needs to happen each turn. I applied the phase icons on my boards, diagonally down and to the right, starting just below Mulheim. 3 icons were on the first board and the rest on the second.
