Barker's Row

Barker's Row is a 2-4 player board game in which you are a carnival barker trying to fill your 3D chipboard seats with "rube" meeples by playing the most fantastic Attractions to delight and amaze them!

Step Right Up!

Barker's Row is designed by Steven Aramini, who is best known for the smash hit train game, Yardmaster. The artist is Andrea Olgiati, who illustrated Winter Tales and New Salem. His unique grotesque noir style brings characters alive like no one else. 

You draft these Barker cards from a community pool and play them into the Midway. Then you use those cards to play one of ~50 Attractions that will amaze and delight the rube meeples in your seats while giving you a special power to use later in the game. Stay tuned for some drafts of these Attractions, such as Lobster Boy, Goose-Necked Girl, and the Fiji Mermaid. Each time you play an Attraction, you climb higher on the Strongman Tower, making the next one harder to play, serving as an elegant and thematic catch-up mechanic. The player to first fill all their seats wins!
