Renegade Game Studios is continuing its partnership with German game publisher dlp games, bringing Reiner Stockhausen’s Altiplano to the United States in the first quarter of 2018.

Altiplano uses a similar “bag-building” game mechanic as Stockhausen’s previous smash hit Orleans, this time set in the arid high plateaus of the Andes mountains.  Players can fish, mine ore, breed alpacas, and trade goods in their efforts to develop a prosperous community.  Producing and delivering goods at the right time is the key to victory.

The game features artwork by Klemens Franz (Caverna:  The Cave Farmers, Orleans). The box includes 5 action boards, 5 warehouses, 5 figures, 5 cloth bags, 11 markers, 78 cards, 1 score pad, and over 200 goods tiles.  Altiplano was designed for 2 to 5 players, ages 12 and up, and plays in 1 to 2 hours.  MSRP has not yet been announced.

Early 2018 is shaping up to be a busy time for Renegade, with a variety of new releases planned (see “‘Lucidity:  Six-Sided Nightmare,’” “‘Castell’ and ‘Dokmus,’” “Bid on the Best Bundles in ‘Byzanz,’” and “Tend the Best Shrubbery in ‘Topiary’”).
