From the box:
Welcome, dear Imperialists. It's the year 2415. The interplanetary federation (IPF) has done a great job in the last centuries. All necessary precautions have been taken to conquer this planet named "Steam". The core of the planet consists of a 6,500º Celsius hot source containing different resources, including water. It has taken over one hundred years to complete the first block of 42 shafts from the surface to the core.

But now the time has come. From every shaft surges the hot steam that is the basis of the production of raw materials. To be able to use and process this steam, platforms have to be placed over the shafts. Later, we can use the platforms to connect the water purification tanks. By using several tank extractors, we can harvest other resources like energy, ore, and quartz from the steam. These resources are important. You will need them to grow your steam empires. You will need to increase the capacity of your landing craft to transport your harvested materials off planet. Buy and sell the resources at the Trading terminal for profit, as currency is – like on earth – always in short supply on Steam. To help you in your endeavors, the IPF has placed several specialists at your command – but getting the specialist that you require may not be easy.





Set in a steam-powered future and made for 2-5 players who each take on the roles of entrepreneurs in a steampunk boomtown, racing to assemble equipment, claim land, extract resources and accumulate wealth.



Players harvest resources using tanks and converters, but then they have to sell their wares in a volatile and shifting marketplace. The winner of the game is the player who accumulates the most money, but that requires a shrewd management of resources and quite often clever manipulation of supply and demand.



Planet Steam is a challenging economic board game set in a richly illustrated steampunk setting.
During each turn a player hires (via a bidding process) a specialist (with differing special abilities) to help accomplish whatever immediate task that the player has planned.

Game includes:
* 35 plastic tanks with 55 converter and upgrade attachments
* plus 350 tokens and markers
* a rulebook
* five reference sheets
* 1 Support Airship marker
* 67 cards
* one 6-sided die.
