        • Response to these prototypes will be used to assess whether to print additional copies (whether hand-made or mass produced).

      All-Aboard Games started several years ago, first as a hobby, then fulfilling orders for Deep Thought Games, and now designing and publishing on a larger scale. I am one of the lucky few that gets to turn their passion into a day job (and their basement into an 18xx game factory).
      With that being said, it takes a lot to hand-make games. Resources, time, space, and a lot of physical energy. I'm going to be focusing more of that toward coordinating mass-production games now and in the future. I'll still be hand-making some games, but on a limited basis.

      So, as time frees up to hand make games, these will be made available on the web store. An announcement for any new copies in the store will be made to the AAG mailing list. Titles that are not expected to be mass production in the short term are prioritized: 1761, 1858, and 1879. I want to express my sincere thanks to everyone that helped me get this far. Designers, play-testers, the AAG team, and all of our customers and fans.
