Great news! For a long time, it had a 2015 release date and after Mayfair and Wallace ended their partnership, I was worried that this would not see the light of day...

Yeah, the universal display board is very handy, indeed.

People are stupid; they can only rarely tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and yet they are confident they can, and so are all the easier to fool.

$45 MSRP? Not so great for those of us who already have the mini expansions and just want the box and map. Oh well.

Love 'em even if a few games get scuttled from time to time.

Nice, I could definitely use the box. I'm curious what the "mini-expansions" will be like.

I believe Morgan Dontanville, who has headed up most of the map packs, is moving over to the Catan company being formed as part of the sale of that property to Asmodee. I wonder if Mayfair will keep Steam going after that or not.

I hope that the box will hold Steam Barons.

As it is, the board of Barons is too larger for the main box.

From the press release, Mayfair bought the full rights to steam from Wallace, so there should be more content coming in the future.

There are a number of exclusive new mini expansions that work with the other maps in this as well.

Steam Barons comes with a box that already nicely contains its content.

Yes, but the size is so incongruous!

Mayfair customer service replied to an email inquiry stating that they didn't know the date of release but may be as early as June 2nd.

Was expecting a bigger box, to containt ALL the stuff. But its purpose is to only containt the maps, you still need to carry the base box to contain all the rest of the components.
