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!

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

Only played China so far. A great expansion with some innovative rules and interesting decisions. Watch your building costs.

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.

Washington DC. Rating: 7
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.
