I present to you a picture of the income/turn/shares/locomotive track from a game we played on an Age of Steam expansion map this weekend:


Your task is to identify the map we were playing based on this information. A Two* shiny awaits the person who can correctly do so.**

Go!



*Thanks to a generous donation from another player in the game.

Just because I own a billion AoS expansions doesn't mean I've played any of them!

Extra credit if you can guess the order of the final scores.

I've never played nor do I own an AoS map that plays 4p in 3 rounds.

No, no, this isn't the end of the game, just a shot of those tracks at that moment in the game. Standard game-length rules applied to this game.

Given the high number of shares issued and the low income levels, perhaps Age of Steam Expansion: Sun / London?

If it were, they'd be using the custom income/share tracks that come with those maps (also because those maps use non-standard share limits and Links).

This is a very good guess, and your head is in the right place. But that is incorrect.

Yeah, I thought about JC's point immediately after posting. In that case, Age of Steam: The Moon.

Again, a good guess; again, an incorrect one.

The only map where I remember loan taking being quite that vigorous that early on (and the incomes so pathetic) was Northern California.

So your play log from yesterday indicating Germany was just a red herring? I wish I could play AoS twice in as many days.

It was quite the fulfilling weekend with two games of AoS, two of Upon a Salty Ocean, two of A Few Acres of Snow, one of Indonesia, Eclipse, Brass: Lancashire, and, of course, a game of Le Boomb! (among others). (Verkisto's count is slightly different, but mostly the same.)

I just wish that sated my desire to play that caliber of game...

Sorry, I should be more clear: It was, in fact, the Northern California map.

I don't remember that one being quite so brutal but I think we played 3p; looks like a 4p play is in order.

God’s purpose for my life was that I have a passion for God’s glory and that I have a passion for my joy in that glory, and these two are one passion.

More like 4p was nearly out of order... this was almost painful. And a great time.

(I was playing black...)
