Raccoon Tycoon (Preview)

On June 19th, Forbidden Games will be rolling out their Kickstarter campaign for Raccoon Tycoon. The goal is to produce the most valuable commodities to build towns, or sell them to gain a profits. These profits are used to win railroads. Having the best towns and railroads determines victory. Forbidden has provided us with various preview images, as well as information about the world and gameplay for you to check out.

Astoria is a land bustling with productivity and growth! New towns, factories, and railroads are springing up across the land. A few savvy business tycoons (you and your opponents) are determined to make your fortunes on the crest of this wave. These Tycoons start out as the producers of the key commodities: wheat to feed the growing towns and factories, wood and iron to build them, coal to fuel the trains and factories, and manufactured goods and luxuries to fill the insatiable demand of the animals of Astoria. Cornering the market for the most valuable commodities can create small fortunes that can be invested in the new businesses, turning them into huge fortunes. The sky is the limit during this Gilded Age!

Game Play

In Raccoon Tycoon, players try to produce the most valuable commodities in an ever changing marketplace. They then use those commodities to build towns, or sell them at the best price to secure great profits that can be used to win auctions for the all-important railroads. The profits may also be used to buy powerful buildings that give the players power-ups or bonuses in production. Owning the best towns and railroads determines victory. There can be only one ‘top dog’ in Astoria. Is it you? Check it out on Board Game Geek!
