The Kickstarter phenomenon, Raccoon Tycoon, has seen off over 100 competitors to take the coveted Game of the Year Award at this year’s Australia Toy Association Gala.
Born from a Kickstarter campaign in 2018 and launched in the US, this Forbidden Games title, Raccoon Tycoon, is a fun and accessible gateway game for strategic game players age 8 years and over.
