Bought 'used' in a charity auction, but the trains and money are still in shrink, so unplayed. I was told it was signed - but I was never able to find the signature (: I inventoried everything that was opened, but did not inventory the in shrink trains or money. Includes the Age of Steam Expansion: Barbados / St. Lucia expansion that came with this version fo the game. Everything in excellent condition, Eagle Games Third English Edition 2008

Soft Reserve: $30

My words literally betray me.
mbmbmbmbmb
I love games that involve logistics and long term planning. This game does a good job mixing long term and short term planning and I love how unforgiving it is. I would lump Steam in as a variant with this. Depending on my mood, I would prefer the way resources come to the board during a game of Steam.

Games Played (8/16-8/22)

The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game x2
We defeated The Dead Marshes 2 times. Here, we had to keep Gollum from escaping. The first time through we were probably a bit lucky with the cards and won it easily in a few turns. The 2nd time it was a longer struggle, and he escaped once but was recaptured. The more I play this game, the more impressed I am by 1) what a well designed game it is and 2) how well the theme holds up.

1830: Railways & Robber Barons x1
A long-running PBEM game finally ended. This was one of those games where the players started to lose interest and there were increasing longer gaps between moves. That's especially a risk in 18xx games where the outcome is readily apparent to everyone, but the bank isn't broken yet. I still like 1830, and I still think I'm a mediocre player. When I do well or do poorly, I'm not always sure I'm thinking through things much differently. Sometimes when I do poorly, other players act in ways that I don't think is in their best interest...and the conditions of the game are not what I expected them to be when I made my decisions. But the game is glorious when this occurs and I discover that the player in question is executing a clever plan I didn't see. (This wasn't one of those times.)

Age of Steam x1
We played a 3p game with 2 new players. It was their first exposure to Martin Wallace, and the first time I played this old favorite in a long time. It was a hit, and I suspect it will be requested in the near future.

Eldritch Horror x1
We invited a couple over for dinner, and the 4 of us enjoyed a game of Eldritch Horror. This was their first time playing. My buddy's wife played a redeemed cultist, and she turned out to be the big hero for most of the first half of the game. It was a lot of fun, and they really want to play again. Yay!

Tinners' Trail x1
I introduced this with 3p to another game group (also introducing Martin Wallace for the first time). I had forgotten how well received this one usually is. We had a lot of fun, and there was a surprise victor none of us saw coming. I hadn't really tried to play auction games with these guys before, so I wasn't sure how it would go over. Turned out to do pretty well.

Sweetener: Age of Steam Expansion: Barbados / St. Lucia (which I think all copies of this edition include)

Eagle Games edition with plastic trains and un-mounted bonus maps (mentioned above). Played once or twice, very good condition. Also includes hand-made role cards on mounted chipboard.

All my friends already have their own copy of this game, so this copy is rarely played.

After getting several of the beautiful new maps from Alban Viard, I knew it was time to replace the first-edition AoS I'd traded away ages ago. So, I got the latest edition, which I was unaware would have a lovely solitaire map from Ted Alspach. We stoked the boiler, and away we went on weekly track-laying adventures!

One of my top 2 games that I don't get to play enough.

I've got great maps for all player counts (including a brutal 2 - 3 player map I designed) but would also love playing maps that others love. Happy to play this as many times as people are willing

Looking at the enormous amount of expansions for this game, I expected most or all of them to be not much more than "just another board/mission" (and not really a full expansion).
But other BGG users are telling me they are more than that (see comments below), so item added to the list.

Games that mix economic and spacial elements are dear to me. This is the game that does it best, for my tastes. However, if this game did not have expansions, it would not make this list. The reason I would pick this over other train games is because of the massive amount of maps and the incredible variety of play space they create. The system is so punishing and so flexible. While I may not be in the mood to play most of the maps some of the time, I am definitely in the mood to play some of the maps most of the time.

I've left Railroad Tycoon off of my list because of its similarity to this, but I enjoy that one with a more casual crowd. It was a near miss to make my 50. I have other games on my list for that crowd, however.

As mentioned above, I'm bringing this in any case. Definitely in my top 5, I recently designed a brutal 2 - 3 player map because I couldn't find a 2-player map that I thought was mean/interesting enough.

Always ready to play.

Very possibly my favorite game. The tense auctions are backed up by terrific potential conflict on the board. I assume I get to keep the host of excellent expansion maps, but I'll still play the rust belt any day.

top 10 game

What a delicious struggle this game is! You struggle to start turning a profit (and not issue too many shares), to do well enough in the auction to get the action that you *really* want, to get routes before others do, to ship goods before others do, to find the right times to upgrade your locomotive (having to pass up on some other juicy action or income in the process), and to find & create clever routes that will earn you the biggest income.
