Martin Wallace is best-know for his superb train games, including my favorite, Steam. I’m very curious about his latest, called Automobile and due from Mayfair next month. Maybe I’ll get a peak at it during Toy Fair.
Here’s the official press release:
Mayfair Games is pleased to announce that it has finally received copies of Martin Wallace’s Automobile™ at its warehouse and will start shipping copies to retailers and distributors on January 31, 2011. The game is scheduled to have a street date of February 17, 2011. Mayfair Games apologizes for the many delays and thanks everyone for their patience.
Automobile™ is the second in a series of transport games by Martin Wallace (the first being Steam™) and published by Mayfair Games (the “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” series). The third title, involving the dawn of air travel, is currently in development.
Automobile™ joins a group of titles scheduled to be released from Mayfair Games in the beginning of 2011 including London™ (also by Martin Wallace), Van Helsing™ (by Frederic Moyersoen), 1830™ (by Francis Tresham), the re-released Catan Dice Game™ Standard Edition and Struggle for Catan™: The Multi-Player Card Game ( both by Klaus Teuber).
