No. We wanted to make Gearworks as accessible as possible and we believe one of the best ways to do so is to offer an awesome game at an affordable price of $24. It would increase the price of the game by $10-15 to add a game board (the game board is huge and this would increase the size of the box and the shipping cost). Since you don’t need a game board to play Gearworks we believed it made the most sense to not include one.
The printed rules in the game box will be English. However, we have several backers who have offered to translate the rules into German, Spanish, French, and Italian. These rules will be available via PDF.
