Steam-belching iron horses roar across the wild plains!
Age of Steam, by Martin Wallace, relives the era when pioneering U.S. railroads built the tracks that transformed America's economy. The cut-throat action is centered on the industrial powerhouses of the growing nation: Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Chicago, and beyond.
Challenges that await you:
Competition is brutal, with the game usually going to the player who plans most carefully.
Each self-contained phase in the game keeps players constantly involved in making vital decisions and interacting with other players.
Age of Steam also allows towns to be developed into cities, ensuring that no two games are exactly the same.

“A truly great game, it’s a deep, immersive game about building train routes across mid-America. It is Martin Wallace’s best game…and should be in every collection. Age of Steam has entered my Top Ten Games and, with expansion maps continually coming out, it will probably stay there…” ~~ Tom Vasel, thedicetower.com
“This is a ridiculously good game. I can't wait to play it many more times. Perfect balance of rules complexity and depth, really awesome components….” ~~Matt Drake on BoardGameGeek.com
