Japan : 2x à 3. 1x à 2.
Works very well with 3 players, probably not with 5.
Variant for 2 players : remove one card of each kind except Ship. Works well, but not a lot of interaction.
13/07/2011 : 2 players, 13 loans, 5 industries, then +$147 when selling.

Minnesota : 3x à 3. Excellent. Works well with 3. No need for a variant, except to shorten the game.
Variant for 3 players : remove 1 cotton, 1 factory, 1 port, 1 coal (+1 of each color for a shorter game).

These two maps offer an exciting new experience.

Makes a good game even better. Enjoyed card drafting system in the Japan map and Minnesota is also unique and changes gameplay significantly.

Both maps are great. The tightness of the Japan map is particularly interesting.

An improvement over the base game maps. More varied and more interesting. Both sides are great.

ASL ... yes, this is my Desert Island Game. If I have to give up all my 3000+ games and only allowed to keep one, this would be it. This bloody game stood the test of time. Around for more than 25 years - simply the best.

Both of these maps lend a great deal to the Age of Industry franchise. The Japan map is super-tight with some scarcities as well lots of sea lanes. The Minnesota map has a different dynamic with the ability to sell iron and coal. I look forward to any other maps produced in the future by Treefrog.

Played this a lot when it first came out but it seems to have fallen by the wayside owing to me playing a lot more 18xx on a weeknight and realising it doesn't seem to fit that well in to some of the other groups I attend, but I'm still keen to explore the new maps that seem to change the dynamic a bit more, I like Japan's buying cards ability and the American disparity between different zones, some very good for iron or railways etc.

As a whole, this expansion makes me excited about future expansions for Age of Industry. Specifically, Minnesota is very interesting with its rule changes that freshen up the game. On the other hand, while Japan also has some interesting rules changes, it is more convoluted and seems to need more work in the rules department. That said, it seems that it will be a very tight and challenging map.

Have played the Japan map and really liked it - the differences in markets really helped me finally appreciate and think through how AoI (in general) is different from Brass and a great game in it's own right

Japan map is the perfect map for 3 players. Really tight with interesting decision. I wouldn't play it with 5 players.

Minnesota brings lots of little thematic element that makes for great play. The selling of cubes in particular turns this action into huge profit.

This was a Christmas gift from my 2012 BGG Secret Santa.

Th Japan map is quite interesting (and rather claustrophobic)

Japan:
2 players - 1 play - the play is meaningless without removing some cards. After that it could be shining.

3 players - 1 play - excellent

Very good expansion maps with interesting new mechanics. Japan's card mechanism is so interesting that I want to PnP a side board so I can use it's mechanics on all AoI boards.

Minnesota is a tough card : To me, it seemed that Age of Industry was a streamlined version of Brass, certainly not a light version. The original two maps played that way, but Minnesota had again some exceptions, in my opinion historically based, that makes it again more complex. So a bit more like... Brass.
Still it is a very good game, always worth playing, but I slightly prefer the base maps.
Japan is easier then Minnesota, and looks more like the England map of the original box. Both games are worthy expansions
