More Steam. Maps are good, plus stock game. What's not to like?

Combines Steam and Imperial, since I like both of those this fits me perfect. Playing time is 2-3 hrs so faster than 18xx- series games. Need to played more to say if this is 18xx lite. It feels bigger than that.

This is even good practise for Steam and AoS, makes you better analyzier of the delivering opportunities.

I really enjoy this. I think I'll be discovering nuances to the share buying and selling strategies for many plays to come.

Martin Wallace is awesome. He is my favorite game designer thus far. I think this game is the first Wallace I played, and it's still a favorite.

The added stock mechanic takes makes this game absolutely brilliant. Tense and engaging to the very end. In my experience the games are always tight.

Love it!

Update: upgraded after recent play. With three this is a fantastic game. Work out how your companies can aid each other, that's the key. A brainburner but in a great way.

Brilliant again, quite a brainburner, especially when you are CEO of several companies at the same time. I love the unique mechanism of the share price adjustment. The relative performance is what counts, not the absolute performance. It is all about the potential that players see for a company or not. You are forced to pay close attention to the scoring potential of companies that you are not (yet) investing in. I love it!
the weak part of the game system is of course the turn order. You just have to be lucky with that.

Based on refined and improved (aka "basic") Steam game of the Northern England map for 5 players. A difficult cube distribution made this a real grafters' game, always scrammbling about for cubes to ship. It was certainly hard work having only 2 cubes per city but enjoyable, as ever. Having got the wooden trains (which I'd really looked forward to) I perversely prefer the wooden disks - much cleaner when looking at the board.

Played prototype. Very enjoyable stock market addition. Think I like it even better than the base game. Comment vs. 18xx? I'm not at all a 18xx fan. I find those games to be slow and a chore to play, but I found Barons to be dynamic and fun.

First, let me say that this game is not for those who despise calculation. It's full of it. So much so that it's an even more calculating game than Age of Steam was.

For me, that's a gigantic plus since I love those kind of games. I love the tension that is inherent in the difficult choices yet to come. That kind of game talk to me. Steam Baron is that kind of game.

I suspect that it can be played quite fast with regular gamers that do not take too much time balancing the in and out of each of their decisions.

What is very fun is that even though it's not yet your turn to play, you must stay focus on the game because what is being played can influence you. Moreover, what is being played can become part of your own strategy. If you see a company that has some more potential but nobody else sees it, you are in for a quick buck fast and easy.

Overall, I am quite please with this "expansion" which is a game in and of itself.

Cheers Martin Wallace, you did it again!
