Steam, Rails to Riches: build railroads and deliver goods along an everchanging network of tracks and stations.

More details




Add to wishlist


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 train, 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 northeastern USA and neighboring Canada is ideal for 3 or 4 players. Use the map of Europe's lower Rhine and Ruhr region when playing a 4- or 5-player game. And because you can play Steam on any number of current and future variant and expansion maps, so we include pieces for 6 players.

Steam is the culmination of Martin Wallace's classic railroad game series. It contains a brilliantly balanced base game, and a very rich, elegant standard game. Both offer you unparalleled flavor and fun.
