We look at Steam this week (an intro to train games)? Firstly a quick look at some other games we've played (not too many this podcast)

Orleans 00:40

Champions of Midgard 04:21

Then into Steam. Is it a good intro to train games? Is it even a train game? We have a look at this game coming from eurogames, with next to no experience with train games (18xx style games). How does this game work for us? Do we want do delve into the rabbit hole of heavier train games after this? The ratings we gave at the end might surprise you, as well as who rated it the highest!
