Warfrog Edition

This is the older version without the dumb plastic trains. It isn't even fully punched yet, sadly... meaning, opened but not played.

Auction

Age of Steam is about network building, and pickup & delivery -- those are the main things going on in the game. But what really makes the game tense is the auction for turn order that happens at the start of each turn. This auction causes cascading effects on the variable powers, the pickup and delivery, the money-management, and the network building parts of the game.

Initial Rating: 7.5 (November 2011)

It´s been a while since I played Age of Steam, so I don’t remember much about the game. I recently bought it so I hope to play it again soon and then I will properly re rate and re comment. However I DO remember that I liked the game, it has very low luck and it rewards the player who plans the best. It is also a Wallace game, a designer I respect a lot. All of this is right up to my alley so I think this has a lot of potential to go up in my ratings.

On the bad side, I remember that I thought the game components were kind of regular. Also, I (more or less) dislike the theme.

For now I really want to play this game, in fact I already have 6 expansions for it .

Current Rating: 7.5


2013-12-22

At last I got to play another AoS game. Sadly it was as long as the first one and that detracts from the fun, lots of downtime. Still I recognize this is a very good game. The components are very flimsy and uninspired, but the gameplay is very meaty and heavy. Lots of complex decisions every time, I like it a lot. I will play again soon and comment again. The truth is I enjoyed my Steam play a lot more than my AoS play, but I’m pretty sure I will enjoy my AoS plays with faster gameplay.

I love that AoS is a more harsher and unforgiving game than Steam, also I love that you have to auction the roles. I’m not sure I like the random aspect of the Goods Growing Phase. For now I want to play again soon. I will try to get this to the table soon.

Current Rating: 8.0


2015-09-15

After more plays, Age of Steam is the undisputed train game for me. I prefer it over Steam because it is harder and transmit much more tension. I like that you need to ask for money at the beginning of the turn (not any moment as in Steam) and the auction is very tense, you begin with so few resources that each dollar count. You have to carefully plan your moves in AoS. Sadly the game has a bad reputation among my friends because: 1. Some of them have lost in the very first turn devil, that is the game can be very unforgiving of mistakes (a plus for me). 2. It is too ugly.

Bottom line, I enjoy Age of Steam a lot, it is Wallace´s masterpiece for me. I will try to play it more in the coming months. I think I currently have over 20 AoS maps I haven’t tried yet.

Current Rating: 8.5

This game hits our table quite regularly thanks to the neat maps available and the "in your face" mechanism.

The fact that you could potentially go bankrupt tells a lot about the weight of this one. The sheer number of decisions and the impact of them on the outcome of the game makes this one a favorite.

Usually, newbie get crushed at their first try and this tend to make it a "love it or hate it" kind of game.

For me It's been a whole lot of this. I think me and Dana combined have almost 20 plays of this in the past few weeks. Only a few of those being together and we haven't played any map twice. It's been my first experience with this game but I absolutely adore it. This may have been due to heavy pachyderm influence and Edwards treasure trove of maps. Can't wait for the next episode to drop.
