I mean, yeah, right now, I'm stuck at home. But if it weren't for this pandemic I'd... ... still be stuck at home. Let's face it, even in better times, many of us don't have the ability to go globe-trotting on a whim. I know I don't, at least. But even without that, I can still live vicariously through my board games. Trekking the World is a board game all about planning a 'round-the-world trip in the best way possible. It's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Trekking the World is a route management game where you travel the globe to fantastic destinations, collect souvenirs, and race to become the most seasoned traveler.
Along the way, you score points in a variety of ways such as by collecting special souvenir sets or traveling to locations indicated on the oversized Destination cards.
Each Destination card illustrates a real location on one side and tells you about that location on the other. Playtesters have told us they've planned trips based on these cards.
There's a variable setup. Each game, you set out two randomly chosen "Journey Cards" which alter the rules in different ways. They ensure every game is different.
The game's making its way to 4x funded with only 6 days left to go.
