If we have only 4 players are we better to stick with the US or Northern England maps or should we use one of the ones included with Steam itself? Thinking in terms of competition, balance, constraints, etc.

Also - if we stick with the Steam Barons maps should we make any other modifications to reflect less players like eliminating a company?

(We are seasoned AOS, RRT, Steam and other rail players, but not 18xx players and have played Steam Barons once before)

Thoughts?

Thanks

If you are playing with the Steam Barons rules, you should stick with the ones included in the expansion. You should use all 6 companies, even though there are only 4 players. Some players will have more than one company. In fact, for some turns, one player may have 0 or 3 companies.
