We played Age of steam expansion 3 (the Korean map) and would like to share that it was a great fun.
We started with 6 players, 3 experienced and 3 newbie’s. All new to the Korean map.
Most of the board was mountain but some of the cities are very close to one another. The cities do not have color so instead you deliver the cubes to where another cube can be found.
this really changed the game for few reasons.

* Urbanization seem to be a powerful option to take, especially since you know what color cubes it will be seeded with.
* Production seemed like a good selection too.
* Getting new resources along your route is a bad thing, as it forces you to take shorter routes.


Few things I noticed that played very differently:
* largest link by a player was only 5 for one person, everyone else had 3 or 4.
* The game is extremely unforgiving, and one of the more experienced players got eliminated from the game at the end of the second round.
* The end scoring was really spacious, and no two players were even close to one another.

The one outstanding question we had coming out of the game was, if a player is eliminated from the game, do we need to take one of die for the resource out of the game to match the new number of players or not.

I'm pretty sure the rule is worded to the effect that you roll a number of dice equal to the number of players currently in the game. So, yes, you do roll one less production die if a player is eliminated.
