Steam-belching iron horses roar across the wild plains! Age of Steam relives the era when pioneering U.S. railroads built the tracks that transformed America's economy. Each self-contained phase in the game keeps players constantly involved in making vital decisions and interacting with other players. You are challenged to:
Finance both the most extensive track network and the most powerful locomotives
Determine which routes will give the best returns on their costs
Steam-belching iron horses roar across the wild plains! Age of Steam relives the era when pioneering U.S. railroads built the tracks that transformed America's economy. The cut-throat action is centered on the industrial powerhouses of the growing nation: Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Chicago, and beyond.
Age of Steam has been the top-rated train game on BGG for most of the years since it first appeared in 2002. But change is inevitable, and now, nearly 20 years later….Eagle-Gryphon Games is proud to present Age of Steam: Deluxe Edition!
Six maps are included on 3 double-sided game boards
Mini-sized (22mm) poker chips have replaced paper money
Classic wooden Track Ownership disks in 6 new player colors replace plastic trains, but cool, small (18mm) wooden trains are available as an inexpensive upgrade
A PVC insert with a clear plastic cover has been added for convenient and clear storage of all components
A huge, heavy-duty box is supplied to carry the weight of potentially 10 maps, 3 new supply boards, 90 poker chips, 144 tiles, and the other new components (see below). This box is a bit bigger and heavier than those we use for the Vital Lacerda games of Lisboa, Gallerist and Vinhos!
