New Playtests This Week

The Transcontinental - Wheelhouse Games

The Transcontinental is a medium-weight euro, with worker-placement and pickup and deliver mechanics, about the development of the Canadian transcontinental railway. Players are contractors, working to complete the railway, sending out telegrams along a linear worker placement track, and then take turns in telegram order, loading and unloading to a shared train that travels across the country. Players can use these resources to complete developments ranging from lumber mills and farms to cities and national parks, or can use the resources to bid to extend the railway. Powerful one-time use ally cards, themed around a rich and inclusive cast of Canadian historical figures, allow players to make powerful comboed actions. —description from the publisher

Elegami - Persnickety Games

In Elegami 2 to 4 players compete to build the most impressive collection of elemental spells within one year, or 4 seasons. Players are dealt cards which they can choose from, in the form of a draft, to customize their hands to best suit their play-style for each season. Four Common Cards are dealt at the beginning of every season to boost all players Mana Pools, which are used to add Elemental Cards from their hands to their personal collection. The competition is fierce and cunning players will use the elements to hinder the opposition! Many underhanded tricks can, and will be used to win this competition of Elegami!
