CARGO RUNNERS GAME DESCRIPTION
Trouble Brothers second originally-designed game for iPad, Cargo Runners is played on a beautifully designed map of the world. The object of the game is to captain a ship that must journey around the globe racing to gather cargo as you compete for valuable contracts that earn you victory.
All the worlds a stage! Thirty cargo ports-of-call with six different types of goods: Aerospace, Apparel, Coffee, Energy, Fruit and Lumber. Six home ports, each with a couple of contracts that need to be delivered. A race to determine the captain of the sea!
Every game is different because the contracts always change. Dice rolls determine movement and you bank what you dont use. Every turn, there is a chance that bad weather or political crisis will impede your decision. Often, there will be Communiqué cards that will give you bonus opportunities. Always, you will have to watch what the other players are doing.
Cargo Runners has the classic feel of a mid-50s board game only its not! Its brand new, designed specifically to take advantage of all the benefits of the iPad. Cargo Runners can be played around the table just like you would a regular board game, or with Online Multiplayer through Game Center, you can sail the world over with real players from all across the globe. A light strategy game built to bring back the joys of classic board games with family and friends.
