Steam, from Martin Wallace and Mayfair Games, is already chock full of expansion content and getting even more in the form of Map Expansion 5: Boxcar. This release will feature two new maps – India and South East US – as well as an assortment of mini-expansions that can be added to other Steam maps. From the press release:
New Action Tiles can be added to your games to change the dynamic of previous maps – The Surveyor, The Midnight Express, The Local Payoff, & Corporate Charity. The Gray Market Goods expansion adds a level of mystery to your goods supply and creates dual goods.
We’ve also included the previous mini-expansions that were only found as promos: Demanding Suppliers, City Growth Special Contractors, and the Five Way Town. In addition to all this, we’ve added more track tiles and have created new complex hard curve tracks.
The addition of promos as full retail release will undoubtedly be great news for many, but wait, there’s more! A new Universal Display board is added allowing you to play expansions next to expansions maps rather than on top of the original board. Finally, the box is designed to fit all existing Steam expansions and an updated omnibus of rules for all expansions. Boxcar seems to be a very appropriate title for this release!
