About Curious Cargo

This post's average rating is: 5

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.

OUTSTANDING!

You build connections with pipe tiles like in Pipeline, but you can also stack tiles!

Make connections to deliver different colored goods to different numbered loading docks along the side of your board that are picked up by your trucks! Trucks get moved based on you placing more trucks, they slide forward more with bigger longer trucks, and the opponent makes connections to pick up the goods on your trucks when they get to their board!

Manipulate what trucks to place to make them dock at your desired delivery connection pipes, but you also want to avoid your opponent’s pickup spots at the same time! You are also trying to pick up deliveries from your opponent and their trucks when they get to your board as well.

Unlockable bonuses, combos, special tiles, and a 3rd color for experts make this a perfect game for those who like tile laying and want some enjoyable puzzling with a friend or SOLO as well!

Beautiful art too!

Not a paid or sponsored review. I play tested the game and think it is incredible and want to see more content for it in the future so please… buy/pre-order now! It’s not a Kickstarter, so you will literally be getting this game very soon if you order now!
