[California Gold Rush] Another excellent expansion. The changes were much more significant than I had expected. Nobody wanted actions 5-7 in the last few of turns as everyone was grabbing gold.

California Gold Rush:

Since gold only adds to your end-game income, deciding when to switch from traditional deliveries to precious metals creates a unique tension not found in other AoS maps - especially since it's prohibitively expensive to build into gold locations (mountains).

Town density is low, too, so early cube deliveries are scarce - yet players can't afford to strike gold until they're out of the red. As one player learned in our first game, chasing down gold before establishing a steady income is akin to suicide.

Still, unless you're a Master Track Planner and cubes are raining down from the sky, you will eventually need to connect to gold - but if you connect too early, without the intent to mine, it's not terribly difficult for players to time their builds and deliveries such that the gold can be stolen out from under you.

So yeah, it's just like the mid-1800s in the California gold belt: Unsanitary, crowded, and pocked with shimmering fountains of lust and desire.

Underground railroad:

Wow, escaped slaves. It's not often that America's ugly past is explicitly incorporated into a board game.

The standard of the Bezier expansions is usually great, and this one is no exception. The game feels different, while still maintaining the basic core of the game.

Based on the Underground Railroad map: very interesting twist on the classic Steam experience with the players scoring only for the slaves they have released. This changes the tempo of the game quite a bit. Nice, different challenge.

[California Gold Rush] 1x with 4 players. Brutallyb demanding. Long deliveries difficult to come by, very expensive to build. Brilliant.

[Underground Railroad] 1x with 4 players. Similar to the CCCP map. Balancing profits and free slaves was challenging. Interesting AoS map with a twist.

Rating for Underground Railroad. I rather liked the AoS turned VP engine aspect. Essentially, the question is how to you get your money humming, how do you do it in a way that sets you up to deliver slaves from bondage (i.e. generate VPs), and when do you start doing that. Quite cool.

ASL ... yes, this is my Desert Island Game. If I have to give up all my 3000+ games and only allowed to keep one, this would be it. This bloody game stood the test of time. Around for more than 25 years - simply the best.

The Underground Railroad idea sounds interesting to me. Deliver the most "slave" cubes to freedom in order to win, and everything else is there just to help you achieve that goal without going bankrupt.
