Age of Steam
Last Friday was P.O.B at the pub and Mudhoney brought along Age of Steam, a recent addition to his expanding game library.
After an overview of the rules, of which I must admit I went into a trance like state and had to be prodded back to the real world we setup the board and started to play.
The game is all about transporting goods around the map, making money and not going bankrupt. You have to be a good planner in the game as there are allot of factors that come into play.
Although I lost it was a good game, Panzerfaust who was doing as bad as me at the start stole the game and won. Everyone enjoyed it and it was nice to play a meatier game even if I could have done with a coffee at the start.
Looking forward to another game of it and looking out for a copy myself. Although I hear Mayfair are going to republish it later in the year so fingers crossed I will be transporting red cubes to Chigago on my kitchen table my the end of the year.
