I've updated Warfrog website and am now taking pre orders for Steam Barons. This is the first official expansion for Mayfair's Steam.

Warfrog will be selling 1000 copies, about 500 of which we will take to Essen.

Mayfair are taking delivery of 3000 copies for the North American market. If you live that side of the pond it will be cheaper for you to wait for your local store to take delivery of the expansion.

Do you expect to send out pre-orders before or after Essen? Or does it look too close to call?

Is it possible to reserve one of the 500 that you will have at Essen?

I got in everyone's hostile little face. Yes, these are wooden cubes from boardgaming. Yes, I'm comfortable with that. I am enlightened.

Will the wooden trains be available in all 10 colors or just the 6 intended colors?

I'm guessing just the six intended colors as 144 / 6 = 24.

I'm hoping for another production "error" again.

According to the pdf of the rules which actually show photos of the components it appears that only the 6 intended colors.

The rules to Steam say the same exact thing.

Can I add this to my existing order for Last Train to Wensleydale and save some shipping?

Also, what kind of maps are these? Are they mounted maps of the same caliber as the original game?

As you can see on warfrog site: http://www.warfroggames.com/purchase.html

I'm afraid that we cannot combine orders to save shipping, so please do not email us asking to do so.


I think that maps are mounted

Drat! Okay, thanks. Now I need to figure out if I should wait for Mayfair or order it right away.

Edit: Julia at Warfrog told me it is actually cheaper to ship two light packages rather than one heavy one, which is why they don't combine shipping. Fair enough.

You and me both. The stock rules look interesting. More bits is somewhat disheartening, but, that's okay.

In light of the FRED dispute, I'm half-surprised that it's coming out.

It'll be interested to see if the stock rules play well, or if they have the 'this game is unfinished, and unplayable as is' result that Railways of England and Wales fans are complaining about.

Is this likely to be a once-only printing? I'm not sure if 3000 allocated for Mayfair is a lot, and wondering if I need to jump on this.

The standard answer to this question is "No".

What happened with the original / NICE artwork?

I dunno, it looks pretty decent to me, certainly better than your typical AoS expansion. I see there are now both 'hills' (+$2) and 'mountains' (+$3) on the US map, as well as 'adjacent city connectors'.

A total print run of 4000 is larger than any of the original Warfrog AoS expansions had (2000-3000 copies). Except for expansion #1 those maps are still readily available 5+ years later. Make of that what you will.

The numbers I have read is that Expansion 1 was a print run of 2,000 and expansions 2-4 were 3,000 each. However, I believe that first and second edition only had a total run of about 6,000 copies.

That is to say, the demand for the expansion(s) is largely dependent on the size of the print run of the base game (and how that translates to ownership).

I don't have a clue as to what the print run of Steam was like, but I would guess that it's larger (maybe 10,000?) which would mean the potential demand for an expansion would be larger.
