Game Arrivals: April 7th - 13th

Game shipments came in throughout the week this week.  Here are some of the board games that came in this week that includes a newly released game and a couple of released game expansions.

The Great Heartland Hauling Co.
Dice Hate Me Games

Just released from Dice Hate Me Games is The Great Heartland Hauling Co.  It's time to hit the open road in this cubes and cards game for 2 to 4 truckers.  
Load up, put the hammer down and get ready to haul some cubes across the Heartland for hard-earned cash!  Manage your hand of Freight Bills and Fuel Cards to drive through the Midwest, picking up and dropping off soy beans, corn, cattle and pork for the highest profit.  Drive fast, haul smart, and stay ahead of the other truckers to be king of the road!

After playing The Great Heartland Hauling Co we find that the game has a lot going on. There is a random setup to the central playing area. Depots vary not only in the cargo that is available for pickup but also in the cargo that can be unloaded.  Additionally, the unloaded value of a particular cargo can vary from depot to depot.  A copy of The Great Heartland Hauling Co is available in our Store Demo Game Library for you to try out while you are here.

Innovation - Figures in the Sand
Asmadi Games
Also, newly released is this expansion to Innovation.  Figures in the Sand expansion contains 105 historical Figures from the same ages as the technology cards in Innovation.  They are similar in layout, but instead of a dogma effect, each Figure contains a karma effect.  Figures being mortals are more fragile than the technology cards and fade over time.
