It is official, AEG has picked up the rights to Trainmaker. This has been in the works for a while and I am very excited to see the game move on to a much larger company with a much broader reach. I am also very happy to see that another of Chris Leder’s designs will be on store shelves all over. I have also signed a contract for the artwork for the AEG version. This means that the AEG version will share much of the same artwork as the Grey Gnome version, with a few tweaks. This is a win/win for Chris and I.
I had a lot of fun working with Chris to bring the original version of Trainmaker to life. It is game that holds a special place in my heart. I loved it way back when I first played it with Chris at a local game shop. I am happy to have been a part of its development and to have been able to get it into the hands of hundreds and hundreds of people all over the world. Now it is time for it to take the next step and get into the hands of thousands and thousands of people. Congrats Chris!
Keep an eye out for the release sometime this year!
I still have stock of the Grey Gnome version for sale on our shop page and while supplies last I am including the custom wooden train whistle and the Outlaws expansion for free with each copy! So please act on that while you can.
