This is The Transcontinental, a medium-weight worker-placement and pickup-and-deliver game about the development of the Canadian transcontinental railway, with award-winning mechanics and a rich historical theme. Players take the role of contractors working for the railway company, delivering resources to develop cities, mining camps, farms, and even national parks, bid resources to extend the railway, work to complete secret investments, and play ally cards representing an inclusive cast of historical figures.
All information here is in draft form, and will be finalized before we launch our Kickstarter on November 10th. If you're a retail and you have additional questions or feedback, please email me here.
Pledging at the Retailer Pledge Level for $5 unlocks the Pledge Manager and will give you access to purchasing the game at retail prices post-Kickstarter. This is intended for Brick & Mortar Retailers, and we'll confirm that you are a B&M retailer before shipping. Details for web-only retail are still being worked out.
A retail carton consists of 6 copies of the game. The MSRP is ~$50 USD, ~$65 CAD.
Retail cost is 50% of MSRP, plus applicable taxes and shipping from our fulfillment partner.
This comes out to a total of ~$150 USD, ~$195 CAD for one retail carton, plus shipping and applicable taxes.
Our fulfillment partner is D6 Fulfillment, who will be shipping from Canada, US, Europe, and Australia (via Aetherworks).
We will also include one demo copy of the game with your first retail carton.
