Rum Run Basic

Battle to Unsober the Townspeople!




Rum Run is a simple game at its heart:
1) Build roads ala 'dominoes' from the Town Center to Distilleries
2) Collect barrels
3) Transport said barrels ala 'mancala' back to the Town Center

It would all be so easy... if you were the only one in the game. Players break each others' roads, make alliances, block routes, and steal barrels all in the name of being the most unsobering savior the town has ever seen!

This edition is for players who are less interested in the chance-based elements of the deluxe edition, and prefer to focus on the purely strategic core game mechanics. It includes:
* Beautiful Box Art
* 12-page full-color 8"x5" comprehensive rule booklet
* Turn-Summary Flow Chart
* Two 10"x16" double-sided mats for customizing the gameboard and its distillery/obstacle placements
* 18 domino road tokens for each of 4 players, including 3 wild forest-folk road tokens
* 25 black barrel cylinders

If you wish to add road tokens and the 'fog token' game mechanic to this edition, check out:
