FF's geeklist says that there are five types of goods, which are used for the pick-up-and-deliver module and for the production module.

Do any playtesters recall what those goods are, exactly? I'm thinking about Stonemaier's "Treasure Chests" and wondering which ones (the one in print and/or the three new ones on KS) would be needed to cover it.

Well, it's a Friese, so the 5 goods are probably tennis balls, limes, green M&Ms, granny smith apples, and turtles.

Now that's innovation...too often designers try to make their games color-blind friendly in all the usual boring ways...icons and symbols and all that nonsense. It's good to see some of the lessons from "Harrison Bergeron" put to use.

I have no clue but I have a theory (disclaimer: theories mean nothing) they are probably just different colored cubes but the cubes will mean different things depending on the theme.

Judging by the pictures, [geekurl=http://www.shutupandsitdown.com/blog/post/games-news-200415/]one hereone here[/geekurl], and the fact that one of the modules is based on catan, I'm going to guess: cattle, wood, ore, wheat... stone?

The colors on the tiles are, light green, dark green, dark grey, yellow and light grey. Then there are tan hexes with 4 squares with pictures on them, I think these are cities. The pictures probably represent the resources that the city wants or can ship. I can't make out what the pictures represent though.

That's what the goods look like to me (open the image in its own tab, it is larger than it shows on the page). The goods tiles do have green backs.

Café Race is a race game set in a business office. The players take the role of office workers going upstairs to the first floor to get a cup of coffee who then improvise a race while they are going back downstairs… with a cup full of coffee.

I just played this evening: cows, lumber, fish, wheat and rocks. But it was not a final production copy, so this can change.

What combination of modules did you play, and did you enjoy it?

Racing, pick and deliver and majories.

The game was fun and I enjoyed it, but It was only a look at the entire system.

The goods wouldn't have to be the same for every game. Though if the goods were to have art on them in the final copy, they wouldn't represent more than 2 separate things per color (could be double sided printed tokens). It's probably not important to gameplay for them to always be different, or even to be defined at all. I hope that's not the case, but not a massive deal.
