Germany is a great map! Subtle rules changes and tense decision-making.

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 only played America and it was challenging; simple but distinct changes to the base AoS system.

Chile is a great, tight map with a neat twist - deliver yellow cubes (gold) to reduce shares issued.

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.

Puerto Rico is a fun little map with some tough choices to be made based on your difficulty level.

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.

Southern US is an introductory map featuring cotton.

The Moon is a brutally tight Age of Steam expansion, 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.

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.

Adds some cool twists to PR. I suspect if I played PR more I would only play with the expansion.
