In Steam, you build railroads and deliver goods along an ever changing network of tracks and stations. You build the tracks, upgrade towns, improve your engine and grab the right goods to make the longest, most profitable deliveries. Score your deliveries and add to your income or victory points, balancing your need to invest against your quest to win the game.
Steam contains a beautiful, double-sided game board. The map on each side depicts terrain, towns and cities at the start of the railway age. The map of the North-eastern USA and neighbouring Canada is ideal for 3 or 4 players. Use the reverse-side map of Europe's lower Rhine and Ruhr region when playing a 4- or 5-player game. You can play Steam on any number of current and future variant and expansion maps, so there are enough pieces for 6 players.
Steam is the culmination of Martin Wallace's classic railroad game series. It contains a brilliantly balanced standard game and a very rich, elegant basic game.
