Age of Steam board game

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. Each self-contained phase in the game keeps players constantly involved in making vital decisions and interacting with other players.  You are challenged to:

  • Finance both the most extensive track network and the most powerful locomotives
  • Determine which routes will give the best returns on their costs
  • Beat the opposition to the most lucrative shipments
  • Make enough money to pay your aggressive creditors
