Rolling Freight is a game of building rail and shipping routes, and moving cargo across those routes. Each turn players roll custom dice to perform actions such as purchasing route contracts, completing routes, making improvements, and moving cargo. Winning will require just the right mix of all these elements so hop aboard and roll some freight!

Summary of Play
Each turn players roll their set of custom colored dice and and then use the results to perform actions. Actions include purchasing contracts, building rail routes for those contracts, purchasing improvements such as additional dice, and delivering cargo. Some of these actions, such as purchasing contracts and building rail routes, require certain dice colors while other actions can be performed with dice of any colors. Completing rail routes and delivering cargo over those routes score the player victory points.
Why We Need Your Help
Rolling Freight is by far our most ambitious project to date. Years of research and playtest went into the design. You may have seen Rolling Freight at any of a number of the Puffing Billy tournaments at game conventions over the last couple of years, and we'll be running it at Origins and Gen Con again this year.
We're really excited to bring it to print, and are doing everything we can to scrape together the money. One look at the component list above and you'll see that this will be no easy task.
One avenue we're pursuing is Kickstarter. We have several different levels of support, and hope that you will consider one of them so that we can get Rolling Freight - rolling!
How Pre-Orders Work
By supporting Rolling Freight at the $60 or higher level, you will receive at least one (1) copy of the game once the printers complete it and it is freighted over. At that point, we will ship the game and the extras to your door. Based on all expectations, it will be roughly 3-4 months after the KickStarter program is over for the games to arrive in Houston and another few days for us to perform a bit of Quality Control and mail it out to all our supporters.
How Shipping Works
Customers in the U.S. will be sent the game(s) free of charge. This includes Alaska and Hawaii. All other international customers will be contacted about additional shipping costs, after the $10 discount. Shipping a Medium Flat Rate Box to Canada or Mexico costs about $28, so your cost would be about $18. Shipping a Medium Flat Rate Box to most other countries costs about $45 before the $10 discount.
