I have been asked if the new Queen version of Wabash Cannonball will be made in China. I can report that it is not and that no parts are from China. While it costs more money to produce the game entirely in Germany, Queen is doing just that. All the elements (box, gameboard, locomotives, etc) are green, non-toxic and recyclable. The Ludofact producers are the best in Germany, so no warped boards or other problems, folks!

I wish more game publishers would do the same. I would gladly pay the extra premium for stuff that doesn't smell like automotive paint.

... and stuff that doesn't come late, and stuff that has the right colors,
and stuff that isn't poisonous.

Plus that I always appreciate when my money goes to a country where workers have certain rights.

This is one of the reasons why I love Queen Games and German game publishers in general...

Will it be distributed to retailers like Thought Hammer, Board & Bits, etc.

Also, I cannot find it on the Queen site. When will it show up, unless I am looking in the wrong area?

Thanks

no paint smell, just that "new German game" smell

correct colors
non-toxic
not made in a sweatshop

And if you want to pay Queen some extra premium money above the SRP, I would guess that they would take it!
