Reading Rulebooks Episode Ten – Age of Steam

Reading Rulebooks is a podcast dedicated to reading through rulebooks and teaching games! In this podcast I directly read the rulebook as well as discuss the game and try to clear up potential areas of confusion.

This week we are going to cover the rules for Age of Steam. Age of Steam is a game designed by Martin Wallace and is illustrated by Ian O’Toole, Sean Brown, Peter Dennis, and Paul Niemeyer. The game is published by Warfrog Games. There are over 125 Expansions. All expansions are maps which can be integrated into the base game.
