Saloon Tycoon



Saloon TycoonThompsons Station, TN – February 16th, 2016 – Van Ryder Games will launch their 4th boardgame project this week on Feb. 18th between 8:00 and 10:00 AM.

Saloon Tycoon is a unique game that has players vying to build the best Saloon in town by playing tiles on their player board. Unlike other tile laying games, the players may place tiles on top of previously placed tiles with cubes acting as the supports. This creates a unique aesthetic and has player visualizing building new room onto their Saloon. There are poker rooms, laundry rooms, stables, even a jail!

Saloon Tycoon is for 2-4 players and is a light medium weight game designed by Robert (Rob) Couch. Rob is co-host of the popular game design podcast Building the Game.

The game is illustrated by Agnieszka Dabrowiecka who also did tiles for the Polish version of The Castles of Mad King Ludwig by Bezier Games.

Prospective backers will have the option to back the game either at the $40 base level or the $70 deluxe level which will come with real fool’s gold to use in the game, a burlap drawstring bag to hold the gold, and 2 special boards to hold the resources during the game.

As part of the campaign, Van Ryder Games is introducing a new concept called HUBS that aims to save backers money on shipping by having many backers from one area pick up their games from a central HUB. It is completely optional, but for those trying to minimize their expenses, it will be a very welcomed option.
