I have decided to start writing reviews for some of the Steam and Age of Steam expansion maps out there since there aren't many reviews written for many of them. I will try and write an average of one a week, so it might take me around a year to write something on each of the games within each of the 25+ expansions that I own. If you are interested in reading the reviews, subscribe to this geeklist and follow along as I add the reviews here.

I would love feedback as well.

The Maps that I will review (in no particular order):

Age of Steam Expansion #1: England & Ireland
Steam Barons
Age of Steam Expansion #2: Western United States and Germany
Age of Steam Expansion #3: Scandinavia and Korea ( I don't yet own this and need to get my hands on it)

Review of 2 player Belgium & Luxembourg:

This was actually a review I wrote some time ago, so it won't be in the same format that I plan to use for the rest of the reviews of these maps that I will use.

Snyopsis: Excellent map for two players- the best map for this player count .

Review of 3p only map Brussels Metro

Synopsis: A solid and relatively short take on 3 P Steam that is strong enough to stand on its own but falls a bit short of Montreal Metro.

Review of the 3p only Trisland Map.

Synopsis:

A gimmicky map that doesn't stand up in comparison to other maps.

Review of Great Britain, played twice with four players.

A very, very interesting map with a mechanic that troubled me.

Mid Atlantic 3-7 player map.

A solid map that does nothing remarkable but is well designed and balanced.
