Seven new Age of Steam maps from Bezier Games!
I'm thrilled to announce seven new maps for Age of Steam in three brand new expansions: Age of Steam Expansion: Alabama Railways, Antebellum Louisiana & Four Corners, Age of Steam Expansion: 1867 Georgia Reconstruction, South Carolina & Oklahoma Land Rush & Age of Steam Expansion: Beer & Pretzels! See complete details and how to preorder at the Bezier Games website:

Alabama Railways, Antebellum Louisiana & Four Corners
This full color Age of Steam expansion contains three maps containing unique twists, including two 2 player maps and one 3-5 player map. These maps are joined by a common pre-Civil War time period, where railroad expansion was happening throughout the South and West.

Four Corners challenges you to build balanced railways in the Four Corners (Arizona, Utah, New Mexico and Colorado) section of the United states. Alabama Railways is a tight 2 player map that will test your ability to create low income railroads for rural Alabama, and Antebellum Louisiana has you not just creating tracks but also establishing new towns throughout the state.

1867 Georgia Reconstruction, South Carolina & Oklahoma Land Rush
This full color Age of Steam expansion contains three maps with challenging and creative mechanics, including one 3-5 player map and two 2 player maps. These three maps are joined by the immediate post-war time period of rebuilding and expansion westward.

Oklahoma Land Rush is a 3-5 player expansion that has players rapidly expanding west to claim land. 1867 Georgia Reconstruction is a 2 player map that builds on the partially destroyed railroads immediately following the war, and South Carolina pit two players against each other as they struggle to deal with an influx of goods from Charleston while paying off the corrupt goverment officials that are exploiting the post-war rebuilding efforts.

Beer & Pretzels Expansion for Train Games
The perfect light-strategy Age of Steam map that's also a complementary map to the new Beer & Pretzels standalone game (see below). And it is ONLY available through preorders.

If you need a break from the euro-hassle of victory points and A/P prone players who are trying to optimize the number of shares they take, then this is the map for you. No VPs. No income or share track. And best of all, no expenses. You get cash money when you make a delivery. And whoever has the most money at the end of the game wins. Simple enough that casual gamers can get Steamed. This is the anti-18xx train experience that even 18xxers will find engaging.

Beer & Pretzels The Stand Alone Game
Just announced, Beer & Pretzels is the game where you toss coasters on a table and get money. This Essen 2009 release is accessible, fun, and oddly addictive. As part of the Bezier Games Essen 2009 preorder package, you'll also get a sixth coaster color for 20% more fun (results may vary depending on who that sixth player is).
