Number 10: Age of steam (+0)
I had the chance to play this again last year and I had a great game of Age of Steam. The game I played last year was a four player game. I had gotten to a fairly decent lead just before the halfway mark and kept on rolling. I almost always went first has I had so much money to spend it was actually a little ridiculous. There was a good race was second as everyone else were fairly close in points, while I had almost lapped in points. Age of Steam seems to have a tendency were if someone gets to rich they just keep getting richer it is mitigated somewhat on the track by being further ahead they drop you back further, but as long as there are cubes they can be pushed 4 or 5 links the person keeps moving ahead. I would still enjoy this game if I came last, sometimes avoiding bankruptcy feels like a win and then doing fairly well.

Going down. I really should put in some effort to actually play this. It's a really good game, used to be my number one favourite, but I've played this very little in the last five years.

This one isn't really long enough to count as an Epic game, but apparently it takes some scheduling to get it to the table. I will plan on bringing my copy (with the wood discs, darnit, not plastic trains!) and a selection of expansions. Tentative time: Friday 8:15am in 1110.

2003 Multiplayer: Link to review.

Age of Steam was created by legendary game designer Martin Wallace in 2002. Wallace designed Lancashire Railways for Winsome Games in 1998, giving him some experience with designing train games. In 2000, after playing his first 18xx game, he got the idea for Age of Steam. “It struck me that the goods movement of Lancashire could be combined with the tile system of 18xx,” he said, “resulting in Age of Steam.”

The game was jointly released in 2002 by Wallace’s company, Warfrog Games, and Winsome Games. The game was finished just in time for the Essen fair, leading to a funny story from Wallace: “On the day I was meant to fly over I could not find my passport, so missing the flight. The rest of the group contacted me once they got there to let me know about the mistake on the board (Denver had the wrong number on it). I was able to make up replacement stickers at home to fix this, so maybe somebody upstairs intended me to miss the flight.”

In Age of Steam, each player controls a rail company. You play on a map of cities, with goods placed on each city. Your main goal is to build rails and ship goods to different cities.

Each round, you can spend money to build three Track tiles, with cost depending on the terrain. You complete a Link when a line of Tracks touches a City or Town at each end.



(A) Players then take turns moving goods to Cities of matching color (such as moving a blue good to a blue city). For each Link used to move a good, the Link's owner gains +$1 Income, which pays money at the end of each round. (Here, the yellow player moves a blue good two links for +$2 Income.)
• You can use other players' Links while moving goods, but that player gains the Income for the Link.
(B) You can move a good a number of Links equal to your Engine level. You can skip moving a good to increase your Engine level.
(C) Players also auction for turn order each round, then take turns choosing actions. Your action choice may let you place a new City, increase your Engine level, or make more goods available.

The game ends after a certain number of rounds, depending on the number of players. Players score Victory Points for their Incomes and completed Links, and the player with the most points wins.

Martin Wallace knocked it out of the park with Age of Steam. This is a game all about route building, behind a crunchy auction. Each turn you have to determine the value of taking more load by assessing the value of routes you need and your interest in the special actions available.

The brilliance of the game lies in the depth of planning you need to do both based on the current board state, but also based on the upcoming production and what your opponents will do. Age of Steam rewards a balance of long term planning and efficiency. Even though the rules are simple and streamlined, there are always divergent strategies and multiple paths that can be taken to success.

If you like tight, economic games with little room for missed moves, then Age of Steam is a game for you. Oh and did I mention that there are over 150 maps for the game, each of which has its own rules?

3-6 players
