Racoon Tycoon hits store shelves in time for Holiday 2022

Earlier this year, when University games acquired Forbidden Gamesthe agreement included Raccoon Tycoon, a stylish tabletop strategy game designed with a vintage art appearance. Raccoon Tycoon, a hit game in the Hobby Channel, has just the right amount of “next step” complexity to allow casual gamers to engage in a strategic gaming experience.

“It’s the perfect entry for strategy games,” explained Craig Hendrickson, Senior Vice President of Product Development. “Raccoon Tycoon is the type of super fun group game that goes beyond a simple game of chance to become a game of player choice and variable outcomes. This secondary level of player decision-making gives every turn new options and excitement.

Games like Raccoon Tycoon provide an inviting entry into the strategy game category, eventually leading new customers to the category’s more complex “player games” like Mosaic: A Story of Civilization or Gloomhaven. Currently, University games benefits from the introduction of Raccoon Tycoon ($29.99 for 2-5 players, ages 8+) in North America with mass-market availability at Target, Walmart, and Barnes & Noble stores across national scale.

“We’re thrilled to deliver a refreshing new game just in time for the holidays,” Hendrickson continued. “Friends and families will be pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to learn to play Raccoon Tycoon and the variations every time they play.”

Additional appeal of Raccoon Tycoon is the whimsical woodland creature theme, high-quality components, and sophisticated art display throughout the game. Raccoon Tycoon was created by an award-winning partnership between designer Glenn Drover and the artist Annie Stegg Gerard.

To play Raccoon Tycoon, players make basic economic decisions to buy and sell goods to build railroads, cities, and buildings and become Astoria’s most prodigious creature. Hitting the market for valuable resources can create small fortunes that can be invested in new ventures, turning them into huge fortunes!

Forbidden Games is the 14th acquisition for University Games, which also markets under the Briarpatch, Front Porch Classics, Great Explorations and Bepuzzled brands in the US, UK, Canada, Australia and worldwide.
