TRANSATLANTIC (Rio Grande Games, 2 to 4 players, ages 13 and up, 60-90 minutes; $64.95)
The Industrial Revolution started shrinking the world. With industry came power, power to drive engines and create forms of transportation able to link continents, to bring people and goods closer together in a shorter amount of time. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, one of the modes of choice to do this were powerful steamships. The growth and development of these steamships serves as the theme of the new game from Mac Gerdts as players build fleets of these majestic ships to span the oceans in the aptly named game Transatlantic.
