Fans of Steam™ will soon be building their rail networks in new places around the world. The first of Mayfair Games’ expansions to Steam™ will be shipping out this summer. The Steam™ Map Expansion # 1 will offer three new maps in a single pack and these maps will support 2, 3, and 6 players. The Steam™ Map Expansion # 1 is for ages 10+, requires the ownership of Steam™ to use, and will have an MSRP of $24.
The three maps in the release are: 1) Belgium & Luxembourg (an expansion for 2 players competing to build an importing empire), 2) the Brussels Metro (an expansion for 3 players developing intercity transit), and 3) Mid-Atlantic US (an expansion for 3-6 players building railroad empires in the Civil War era). Also included will be an extra sheet of Steam™ tiles. These boards are sure to challenge Steam™ players with their region-specific rules and challenging topography.
Steam™ is designed by Martin Wallace; the Steam™ Map Expansion # 1 is designed by Morgan Dontanville with art by Jared Blando (maps) and John Austin (rules cover and background).
