Microbreweries are a hot commodity, and it seemed like a couple of years go several board games came out with some kind of beer theme. Food trucks and local restaurants are a big draw as well, and it seems like that theme has come to board games as well. The designer behind Brewin’ USA has now started raising money on Kickstarter for his latest design, Truck Off.
You can always just tell them to Truck Off!
New game from the creator of Brewin’ USA on Kickstarter on February 1 – February 28.
Adam Rehberg, creator of the Kickstarter Brewin’ USA, is seeking funding for his new game, Truck Off: The Food Truck Frenzy. The game delivers an awesome player experience over a wide player count, tons of interaction and approachable gameplay, and a stunning paper craft artwork style.
Truck Off has been widely play tested around in the Twin Cities including Protospiel Minnesota. The Kickstarter campaign will feature the game at $19 and is setup for CA and UK/EU friendly shipping.
About the game:
You’re a Food Truck Titan competing in Truck Off: The Food Truck Frenzy, a five day competition to determine the best food truck outfit in town. You’ll need to gobble up the most profits to win, but watch out for your competitors as they look for the best opportunity to tell you to Truck Off!
In Truck Off, you secretly select two venues to deploy your food trucks. A corresponding die is rolled for each venue to see how many customers actually show up. You then then select from a hand of action cards and execute them to improve your chance at a fat payout. The winner is the player with the most money after five days (rounds).
Number of players: 2-6 Time required: 30 min Recommended ages: 10+
Don’t get too hungry playing this one. The Kickstarter will be up all month, and the price is definitely right!
