In the past few years I've become an avid fan of Age of Steam and I've picked up a decent collection of maps. I've also instituted a regular monthly game at my local shop.

I can use your help. I would like to know the best maps for any given number of players. Please list your favorite, or comment on it if it is already listed.


For each entry please include:

1. The individual map name (since many map packs include several maps)
2. The reason it is great with this number.
3. Any other helpful info such as whether it is good for beginners or meant for experts.

Feel free to discuss and disagree. I'll start it off with one of my favorite maps for 4 players.

See also the following meta-list for other player counts:

My first ever game of AoS was on this map, and I happened to win it. Maybe that's why I'm so fond of it. I'd played half a dozen games of Steam and several of Railroad Tycoon so I wasn't a complete beginner but this was the first time where the cutthroat brutality of Age of Steam came to light and it began to rise to the top as the family favorite.

I know a lot of people claim this is best with 3. I have yet to try it with that number but I really thought 4 was pretty great. My competitors had a spider's web of tracks across the south and east. I also loved how the first turn options for deliveries were so scant.
