AGE OF STEAM 1867
Playing Time: 120'
Steam-belching iron horses roar across the wild plains! Age of Steam 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.\n\nChallenges that await you:\n\nCan you finance both the most extensive track network and the most powerful locomotives?\nWhich routes will give the best returns on their costs?\nCan you beat the opposition to the most lucrative shipments?\nWill you make enough money to pay your aggressive creditors?\nCompetition is brutal, with the game usually going to the player who plans most carefully.\n\nEach 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.
