Breaker, breaker good buddy it’s time to jump behind the wheel of a big rig and start making some dough! Dice Hate Me Games has announced The Great Heartland Hauling Co. is now available for order. You probably remember I really enjoy the company’s VivaJava so this is one to look forward to picking up because it seems like the DHMG team knows fun.
Two to four players take on the role of truckers traveling the Midwestern U.S. as they look to earn the most cash before the game ends. Designed by Jason Kotarski, The Great Heartland Hauling Co. can be yours for the low, low price of $20.
From Dice Hate Me:
The Great Heartland Hauling Co. is a game for 2 to 4 players, ages 10+
In The Great Heartland Hauling Co. players take on the role of medium haul Midwest truck drivers doing their best to make a living by hauling goods for big suppliers. Players truck to various locations around America’s Heartland, picking up and dropping off goods using matching cards from their hands. Most locations have native goods that require fewer cards to load; other locations may pay a premium for those goods but may also require more fuel – and time – to get there with the cargo. With limited space in each trailer and only five cards in hand at a time, players will have to expertly manage their resources, as well as play the odds and press their luck to be the best trucker on the road.
The Great Heartland Hauling Co. will offer a lot of replay value through the use of cards to create a variable board set-up each game. The game will include 60 goods cubes, 4 wooden ’18wheeple’ trucks, and 46 resource cards – required for pick-up and delivery – that are drawn from a shared draft board, as well as 20 fuel cards, which are used to move about the Heartland.
