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.
Challenges that await you:
Can you finance both the most extensive track network and the most powerful locomotives?
Which routes will give the best returns on their costs?
Can you beat the opposition to the most lucrative shipments?
Will you make enough money to pay your aggressive creditors?
Competition is brutal, with the game usually going to the player who plans most carefully.
Each self-contained phase in the game keeps players constantly involved in making vital decisions and interacting with other players. Age of Steam also allows towns to be developed into cities, ensuring that no two games are exactly the same.
This file is a two-page file (one page instructions and one page map) of Northeast Ohio featuring prominent cities and rivers in the region. This solitaire map:
- Removes Purple from the cube mix.
- Interurban city lines that prevent you from using them.
- $3 payment to use an Urbanization, Engineer or Production action.
- Cash minus shares and locomotive level determine if you've won - and by how much.
Two Production dice used.
Questions, thoughts welcomed. Happy gaming!

Tres juegos de cartas con las distintas acciones disponibles en Age of Steam, Steam (básico) y Steam (estándar).
Están pensadas para jugar con un único juego (Age of Steam o Steam) a cualquiera de las tres modalidades.
v2 (Sep 14 2013)
Nueva maquetación. He partido del archivo creado por Mark Blanco (Geese). Tiene las tres versiones de las cartas traducidas al español (Age of Steam, Steam Básico y Steam Estándar). Gracias a Mark por darme permiso para usar su documento (magnífico trabajo Mark). Si quieres bajar el archivo original de Mark: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/filepage/8598/geese_aos_action_cards_v3-zip
v1.1 (Sep 13 2013)
Corrige el error de la carta Producción de Age of Steam (gracias Game Junkie)
v2 - Redesign and new boards. You can use all of them with Age of Steam and Steam.
page 1 - Age of Steam's income board.
page 2 - Zorosteam's board. Redesign of Zorosteam's board created by Zoroastro (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/filepage/65803/variante-zorosteam). It's based on the track of Railways of the world and it's a great variant. It's my favorite income system. It can be use with Age of Steam and Steam.
page 3 - Steam's income board
page 4 - Age of steam's goods board
page 5 - Steam's goods board
These boards are designed to be printed on A4 paper/cardboard. The boxes are bigger than the boxes of the official Age of Steam board. Despite this, I use mepples and wooden cubes (10mm) instead the original discs.
Resumen del turno en una página. Age of Steam y Steam son muy parecidos. Con un único juego y con algunos de los ficheros disponibles aquí, en BGG, puedes jugar a las dos versiones.
Por favor, si encuentras alguna errata repórtalo para que pueda corregirla. Gracias
I lost the original files so I had to redo the map from scratch. I changed a couple of things and added numbers for production (kind of important).
There are three special rules with the map:
1) Goods produce on the two eastern purple cities on a roll of 1,2 or 6 this is to simulate goods being shipped from the eastern US.
Note: This could very well be waaay too many goods on those cities but I think it could be interesting. If it is too many goods you can always try just producing on 2 of the numbers or even ignoring this special rule altogether. If you do that just ignore 1s, 2s or both.
2) In the northwest corner there are two ferry lines. These can be built for the noted cost and count as 2 tile lays each. They cannot be built until the associated town has been urbanized.
