Blockade Runner is a resource trading game in the Euro style, but with a dash of danger. In Blockade Runner, players take on the roles of entrepreneurs attempting to make the most money by shipping cargo in and out of the South during the American Civil War. Positioning is achieved by competing with each other for access to commodities, top market prices, and newly built ships. Hard decisions include whether to play safely to keep ships afloat or take potentially profitable risks. The crux of the play is hinged upon whether to bring in vital war goods, which reduce the intensity of the growing blockade, or more profitable black market goods. This enables a potential for cooperation, but competition is the heart of the game.
Blockade Runner is Numbskull Games fall release for 2010 and was first shown at Essen Spiel Fair Hall 5 stand 108.
There is a nice Deluxeversion available that includes several updates of new cards and alternate rules.

These shipcards are modified, the price of the fast ships is slightly raised making it more difficult to buy them in the first round.
Since the ships improved during the war this modification makes the game more realistic.
The cards are available at Essen 2015, Hall 3 N100
