Game #1

Age of Steam Italy

Just me and the Grimms tonight. The group seems to be on its last gasp. But at least it is still breathing meaty air. I don’t usually listen to podcasts. But I sat through the The MetaGamer’s podcast which was on Age of Steam. And that put me in the mood…

Supposedly, this map is balanced for three players. But I think we played the game wrong. Doug and I were competing while Jon was left alone. Another clue was that we never used any of the supplementary track tiles which came with the game. So I think the goal was to get as convoluted as possible. And we didn’t deliver as much black goods (giving negative points) either… Perhaps another replay is in order.
