America, shortly after the first transcontinental junction in 1869.
Railroads are developing all over the vast expanses of the wild west, and business is booming. It is a time of adventure, progress, and opportunity. The transcontinental junction was a great milestone in American history, a first step that reshaped a whole continent.
In SteamRollers you are a railroad entrepreneur building a network of tracks and a fleet of train engines to secure freight delivery contracts before your opponents. At the core of the game is a very nice dice drafting engine by new designer Mark Gerrits (Be). In turn, players choose dice from a pool to draw rails on their individual playsheet, improve their engines, research new technologies or deliver goods to get points.
This is a Kickstarter 1-Year Exclusive* project: after the campaign, SteamRollers will not be available in distribution. It will only be available direct from Flatlined games and via a limited selection of retail partners.
The Kickstarter campaign will run from Aug 22 to Sep 21, so don't miss out, pledge now!
