Update #34

A Travelling Carnival?

Comment

Hello everyone!

We hope you're all doing well and having fun with some games. We just wanted to quickly drop by and let you all know that we have a new game project on Kickstarter that many of you who enjoyed Carnival may also like to check out - The Great Heartland Hauling Co. In the game, players take on the role of medium haul truck drivers, using cards and wise risk-versus-reward decision making to haul some cargo cubes across the American midwest.

When we were approached at Origins by the game's designer, Jason, we weren't planning on taking on another game project, but we just fell in love with the design. After we played, we also got to thinking how it would tie in with our game line-up and we figured that carnivals have to use trucks to move themselves from town to town, right? What finally spurred us to work on publishing The Great Heartland Hauling Co. was the fact that we could offer the game in the same size box as Carnival, at the same price, and with the same high-quality components.

If you'd like to know more about The Great Heartland Hauling Co., please check out the Kickstarter page here. You can also learn more about the game and the designer, Jason Kotarski, on the latest State of Games podcast.

Take care and happy gaming!
Cherilyn & Chris
