A new double-sided map board featuring the Detroit Bankruptcy map by Chad DeShon and the Heavy Cardboard map by
Kevin McCurdy in the new Age of Steam Deluxe style of Ian O'Toole.
Detroit Bankruptcy by Chad DeShon
-- The economic collapse in the mid-2000s was felt especially hard in
Detroit. Bankruptcies and government bailouts popped up everywhere.
Even the city itself declared bankruptcy. This expansion map shifts that
economic stress into full throttle right from turn one. There will be
bankruptcies. Staying solvent is all that matters. The last player still
solvent wins. A new solo mode will be included in the rules for this
map - making it a 1-5 player map.
Heavy Cardboard Map by Kevin McCurdy -- This was originally put together to commemorate the 1 year
anniversary of the Heavy Cardboard podcast. The city and town names used
on this map are board games featured or discussed in Heavy Cardboard
podcasts. The map is intended to be fairly open with plenty of space for
route building and goods availability. The Heavy Cardboard hex in the
center of the map acts as a cube fountain, generating new goods every
round and making it an important location since there is no production
action with this map. A new special action, "Heavy Lifting," adds the
ability to deliver over land between Cities. This leads to some
interesting decisions that players need to make during the game. This
map plays 4-6 players.
