Rating currently based on Four Corners map only. This made for a nice twist on Standard Steam without changing it too much.

This is the first Steam / Age of Steam expansion I have played so rating may go up or down after trying other maps.

Played only 'Four Corners' so far.

Very good map, pleasant and giving lots of fun. I'd say it's excellent for beginners. Not a big step away from the standard rules, yet refreshing.
Highly recommended.

Antebellum Louisiana
-- Comments --
Weird play, with only 2 cities and 3 available actions. Also, it seems that eventually whoever is in the lead will be able to monopolize City Growth, assuring themselves both turn order and a steady supply of cubes; and that "eventually" may in fact be pretty soon, depending on how the builds go! With Base rules, you probably need to leave Turn Order as one of the Role options.

I don't think I'm a fan ...

-- Rules --
Setup
• Remove the purple and yellow cubes and the yellow, purple, and 2 gray New Cities from the game.
• Only use red, black, blue goods.
• Shreveport, New Orleans: 5 goods

Choose Actions
• ONLY Urbanization, Locomotive and City Growth are available.

Track Building
• Create Town(s): May pay $3 to place a new town on any track you own, but not adjacent to another town or city. This does not count towards track-building limits.

City Growth
• Shreveport and New Orleans NEVER get City Growth marker

Advance Turn Marker
• Game ends after 8 turns

Lovely Steam expansions for two players and a bonus one for four players as well, with some rule changes, so the basic game will not get boring. Four Corners is a very good, if not too demanding multiplayer map, while both two player maps are something special, with Alabama Railways being just a little but more interesting than Antebellum Louisiana in my opinion.

Rated for the two-player game. Four Corners is also a great beginners' map, giving a small bonus for set collection to lighten the game up a little.

Played Four Corners with Steam. The 4-color bonus makes for much more interlinked track with shorter deliveries. It's much more common to give your opponents a VP or two to get the cube you need.

First Steam expansion map that I've tried. Having grown up around the Four Corners, I had to get this one, although the map is spread over a much larger western area, and I'm not sure of the geography being that accurate but I'm sure it needed to be adjusted for game play. Also, I really am looking forward to the opportunity to play this with just 2.

(Four Corners) 1 play, with 3 players. It was a very tight map, which kind of surprised me. It supposedly plays up to 5, which is hard to imagine, but obviously there would be less turns. I really enjoyed it though, especially the new bonus points for a 4th colored delivery. That forces one to build close to the center and try to reach into all parts of the map. A lot of cutthroat moves trying to beat each other to different colored cubes.

(Alabama) Played once. Tough map with income reduction. Not bad but the 2 player maps seem to lose something from the game.

(Louisiana) Haven't played

Four corners: not many rule adjustments. Map has the four colours in the four quadrants of the map. When delivering, you keep the cube in front of you. When you have four different colours, you hand them in for four bonuspoints. Quite a nice beginners map. New players have an extra way to get points by playing for sets of cubes. In my play it led to the situation that they new players were moving so much, thereby neglecting their loco-upgrades. Cube-scarcity in the end. Rating 7.25

Alabama Railways: purple and yellow cities en cubes taken out. Only availailable actions loco, urb. and city growth. This map features brown cities with cubes but of course you can't deliver to them. To get any delveries done, you have to urbanize. Tricky to play, interesting map. Rating 7.75

Antebellum Louisiana: purple and yellow cities en cubes taken out. Only availailable actions loco, urb. and city growth. This long shaped map only has two cities and no towns. You can build a town anywhere, then urbanize it. This provides for lots of replayability I suspect. Quite a challenging map. It is all about building an efficient network and fending off your opponent. Rating 8.25

The two-player maps need very careful planning if you want to make any profit at all. The art looks much more like Age of Steam than Steam. The maps look simple but invlolve surprising strategic depth. I'm not sure I like the direction they take Steam gameplay, though.

[Alabama Railways] 2p

[Antebellum Louisiana] 2p

[Four Corners] 1x with 4 players. Vanilla map with just one new rule. Lots of competition for cubes from the very first turn. All roles can be important/critical at some point. I love such maps, so the rating might go up with further plays.

Only played Alabama. Jen did not like it though since she almost went bankrupt. I was quite digging the map. I did miss being able to build 4 pieces of track, but since the map was so small, it didn't matter too much. Great expansion, can't wait to try out Antebellum as well as the 4 corners one.

This one is NASTY. The -1 income rule for each delivery can really hose you in the early game if you're not careful.

Another nasty 2-player map, though I find it a tad less interesting than Alabama. Rating: 6

This is the first and last Ted Alspach board I will purchase. I was disappointed in the light weight board. Also this was purchased for Steam (it was advertised as an expansion for Steam), but I feel his rules adapt poorly and ignore the Steam board set up I like so well. (After playing Steam, I traded in my copy of Age of Steam & all boards.)

Have not played this yet, but have rated it on quality and upon reading the rules & viewing the board, on the Steam adaptation.

I might take this board to play with my friends who still have Age of Steam--I suspect it plays better.
