Hello,
This year again , the AoS team will release expansions for Age of Steam and it is a set of 3 maps that will come in the triangular box

CCCP, Egypt, Chile

Chile: A wealth of Incan gold lies undiscovered in this country. Previously inaccessible because of its remote mountain location, the gold is now the focus of cagey foreign investors who hope to avoid the pitfalls involved in constructing expensive iron roads into the mountains.(suitable for 4/6 players)
A narrow country that forced the AoS team to produce two huge heavy paper that should be fitted together before playing.



Egypt is divided into two parts by the Nil that floods each turn . Tought, the cultural and historic wealth of this country make it a fine choice for investment, but care must be taken to minimize the impact of the destructive annual flooding of the Nile which will increase track construction costs and destroy goods. The friendly Felluca owners are happy to aid players to this end, transporting goods over temporarily flooded track, for a price (suitable for 3/5 players)



CCCP will add tension to your group because of a new victory condition.
By the end of the 19th century, corruption is choking Russia's economy, making profitable investment impossible. In the wake of the October Revolution, profits become a secondary concern however, as ingratiating oneself with the new Politburo is frequently the difference between life and death. Try to convert black cubes into red cubes to remove corruption, or deliver directly red cubes to hope that your points will be counted at the end of the game. (suitable for 3/4 players)



Be carefull CCCP and Egypt is for advanced players because of VERY tight money.

The set contains TWO heavy plastified papers , same quality as the moon/mars expansion + instructions in English/French
You do not need to buy two sets to have a big map !
This expansion is limited to 120 sets and numeroted
The set has to be preordered like past years at ageofsteam08ATyahoo.fr and will cost 30E.
You also have to pick the set up on Thursday 23th directly on the Winsome booth between 10 to noon (short window, but enought for those who will attend Essen)
I will bring few copies of the MOON/MARS expansion and WiI/NYC for 15E each

Thanks to Michael Webb, the new member of the team for reading and correcting the rules. We hope that this friendly partnership will continue again in the future with the new logo and the next releases that we have in the pipeline

The Winsome Games stand is again in Hall 10, Stand 10-66, same place as last year. Save a set for me, Alban!

In contrast to the basic game, where people are rolling in money!

"roll in money"
what? - do you think we are behaving like Uncle Scrooge (Oom Dagobert)?

find someone who attends Essen and who is very kind to pick the set up for you.

Probably Fungain will stock this expansion as he usually does
Thanks to Michael, it could be easier to get our next expansions in the future
