India: 1 play. Linking goods placement to track building into cities is a clever twist. Beware playing this map with the careful planner who can see several turns ahead!! 9.

Played India once. Really like this map, but we played it with 5 and people were still taking shares on the last turn.

Played India. Great map with 6. Didn't feel overly confined and played well. The monsoons and higher building costs (plentiful rivers/deserts) made money tight and the scoring lower than normal. Overall, it was enjoyable and I'd highly recommend it for 6 and possibly 5 players.

One mistake in the beginning can be crucial, so I don't recommend playing with people not experienced with the game. The rules are tight, the map has a good size for a 2 player game, looking forward to try it more.

India is very hard on shares. I need to try it again.
It is a very challenging map.

On a good note, during the tournament on the other table, Mario's final scoring was 2 points. Glad to know I wasn't the only one who sucked on this map.

I want to try this map again soon to get a better understanding of this expansion.

I know people who has all the Age of Steam expansions.

Down graded Age of Steam a 1 point. Rarely play it in Montreal. Play it most often in Quebec City and at the WBC. Doesn't mean it's a bad game, just a lack of interest with Montreal gamers.

My rating is for the Austria map. I played it only once so far but I liked it. Unfortunately, my oppenent made a huge mistake at the beginning from which he could not recover...

The Austria map is fantastic! Such a clean and concise way to get an AoS fix when you only have two players. The lack of auction and shares fascinates me, and I'm curious to know how similar this is with the upcoming 3rd edition. For now, this will be my first suggestion for two player games.

Austria: A good variant map for 2. 9.5

India: Monsoons are too random; the production change is appreciated. Ultimately unsatisfying for an AoS map, though. 8

After one play of India with 5: great map. The clustering of the cities makes for an interesting game, and the production based on players connecting track means that you want to connect to the same cities as the other players, which subverts the usual pattern. I'm not crazy about the monsoon die rolls, but this just tends to make you keep a little extra cash on hand. The changes aren't so drastic that it plays like a different game.

India is a hard map. It changes the rules only slightly but the board is full of rivers and cities of the same color are grouped together.
