A completely immersive Civilization experience. The quintessential Civilization board game and a top negotiation game. Play trading rounds with a timer. Unfortunately this is a loooooooong game. Great fun though!

I've only played Ireland so far with 3-players. To spice it up, sub Japan Bullet Train action for Irish Locomotive...

After a few games, I'm happy sticking with a fully defeatured locomotive for 3-players. I've also grown to hate the De-urbanization action - too ornery and nasty. I do want to try Ireland with 4-players though.

Scandinavia is pretty unbalanced with the Ferry action and Korea is too chaotic for a strategy game.

A fantastic AoS expansion. NorCal is a tough map.
1830 Penn. - coal is *CRITICAL*; a great map as well.

1890 Berlin offers some intriguing twists to Age of Steam. The early game is a fight over real estate with Engineer being popular, while the mid-to-late game is more about controlling cube shipments with First Move and Production being popular.

The cities are always replenished to 4 cubes during goods growth (there's no shortage of cubes here) but you can only ship cubes out of a city in order, from right to left. You have to watch how cubes move - do you ship that cube for 4, leaving a 6-link delivery open for an opponent?

I've played Austria and it is interesting. A very tight map means early mistakes are difficult to recover. Turn order mechanism makes it feel a lot like chess.

Barbados - as a 1-player map, replayability may be low, but cube randomness makes it unique every time. Action selection restrictions make for some interesting strategic planning.

St. Lucia - an excellent 2-player map. A very different game with goods starting on every plains and river hex, no goods growth, and a large number of 'stubs' abandoned after moving the goods from those hexes.

This expansion is great for higher player counts as the map is huge. You're limited to the number of links you can build per turn and are forced to be right on top of the other players early on.

Germany is a fantastic map with some interesting twists to base AoS.
France is a good beginner map but can get quite intense with higher player counts.
It's good to see these old maps reprinted again.

Berlin Wall. Rating: 8
Very deceptive; at first it looks plain and maybe even boring. It didn't quite grab me. But the size of the board, the rules changes and 'the Wall' really make this map a "knife fight in a phone booth". Very tense and INtense, right down to the end. Awesome Age of Steamness!

The Moon. Rating: 7
A brutally tight Age of Steam map, especially when using the original 1-cube per city starting rules. Limited building options, expensive terrain, route-sharing and different actions are powerful especially Urbanization and Low Gravitation. I'm not fond of the wrap-around map as I have a hard time visualizing my routes.

A nail-biter of an AoS expansion if there ever was one. Zombies gravitate towards goods cubes destroying towns and cities in the process and increasing the cost of building and moving goods. An advanced Age of Steam expansion - not for the faint of heart!

Similar scale; expensive builds. I don't like the element of randomness that is added with the 'traffic jams'. Overall, not as interesting as the Berlin Wall.

Pittsburgh is only for 3-players - a few minor rules tweaks and a tight map make AoS Pittsburgh a very tense 3-player game experience.

Two high-quality Chicago Express expansions in one box:

Erie Railroad - adds an additional railroad that only has one share and can be very powerful. This completely changes the game.

Narrow Gauge - a new and innovative way to block your opponents railroads by essentially burning actions. Nasty!

Play them separate or together. Better for higher player counts (I don't prefer them with 3).

Adds 9 pink cubes which serves to lengthen game time and typically add a few interesting decisions to the endgame. While this is all good stuff, I like how quick GM&O plays and prefer it vanilla.

This expansion makes a great game better. The Erie is very delicate though. Bid with caution!

The player to get the Erie in a 3-player game will regularly clean house. Lately, we're only playing it with 4 or more.
