I stumbled upon a midnight market. It wasn’t selling flowers or farm goods. It was a more curious sort of cargo: energy capacitors, strange crystalline material, and something green and jiggly. Since then, I’ve been dragged into it, deep into the thick of it.
I paid a stranger more than I should have for manufacturing plans I hardly understood. Worse yet, they sold the same stuff to my best friend. Now, I have to get my supply lines up and running to prepare for shipping my cargo. And, if my friend starts shipping some of this Curious Cargo, I’ll have to intercept their trucks and corner the market that way.
By hook or by crook, I’m going to be the king of Curious Cargo.
Curious Cargo is a two player game where you go head-to-head against your opponent by building up the infrastructure of your facilities, calling in trucks at the right moment, all while perfectly timing the shipping and receiving of cargo to score the most points. Connect an interweaving network of lines to your shipping and receiving spaces. Ship your custom-shaped cargo tokens to your opponent to interfere with their logistics plans!
For your first game, we recommend playing in the Day Mode which uses 2-color Conveyor tiles. For the Night Mode, the purple crystalline material is introduced for an an advanced experience by using all 3 colors on the Conveyor tiles!
The puzzling nature of Ryan Courtney’s Pipeline comes alive in Curious Cargo! With 6 unique player boards for each player and 2 game modes, a skillful challenge awaits even the sharpest competitor.
