Paul had to run off as soon as Caylus was finished.

Ryan, Richard, and grabbed some delicious food (my first time trying tripe) at a pho restaurant a block away from the hotel. (Great suggestion, Richard.)

What could be better after refreshing ourselves than Age of Steam?

Nothing. That's right. Nothing could be better than Age of Steam.

So, that's what we did. Richard got in touch with Derek and Derek came over to join us. Ryan gave me a quick rules refresher since I hadn't played the game since 2008. I had a decent handle on the rules, but I do thank these guys for putting up with me asking some questions during the game, including just affirming that I was on the right track (pun intended) and that I wasn't going to be bankrupt after the first turn.

Oh man, did I need some affirmation. The California Gold Rush map was brutal right from the start. It was painful (hurts so good). There was much swearing and gnashing of teeth.

The end scores were close. Well, except for Richard. Poor Richard bankrupted himself digging for gold too early, before he had the infrastructure in place to process that gold and move it along for a profit. I'm pretty sure he was last seen in the mountains, bottle of whiskey in hand, rambling on about the time he had discovered the gold in these here parts and how it had all (both gold and glory) been stolen from him by three other ruthless rail barons who had no pity at all on him as he hit rock bottom.

It was a wonderful game to end the con on and I'm so glad I got a chance to play it. I enjoyed playing other games; I loved being crushed by AoS nastiness. I really need to resolve to get AoS played more regularly. Nine years between games is just criminally wrong.

Final scores:
Ryan: 144
Me: 133
Derek: 131

New to me? Game - no. Map - yes.
Would I play it again? I'd play it again right now.
Would I buy a copy? Of the map, yes. I haven't purchased many AoS maps, mostly because I couldn't ever even seem to get the base game played. I am a proud owner of an original Warfrog pink box base game.

Age of Steam is my favorite; Surely I need another expansion. The map is mounted. Part of Bezier Games' $75 AoS Pack

Gold Rush: Give up cube delivery/loco-advance to claim valuable gold ($5 income / VP boost); 3-6 players
Underground Railroad: Give up cube deliver/loco-advance to free slaves. Most slave freed = winner; 3-5 players

Interest level: Received as gift
