A new big box game from Days of Wonder? Yes, please!

Cargo Noir is a game about smuggling goods set in a 1950’s film noir theme. Each player takes control of a “family” trafficking illegal goods. Ports include: Hong Kong, Bombay, Rotterdam, Panama, Tanger, Rio, Cape Town, New York, and Macao. Players take their ships full of gold to various ports and snag the goods they want. Goods are then stored, and later traded for Victory Spoils (victory points.) The game’s central mechanism is an auction mechanic, and can handle 2 – 5 players. Suggested retail will be $50, and it’ll be available in March.

Days of Wonder usually knocks it out of the park with their big box games, and this one looks pretty sweet.
