The mission of Rio Grande Games is to promote the playing of family strategy games in the United States. As most of the really good family strategy games are designed and produced in Germany, Rio Grande Games works with the German publishers to publish English versions of these great games. To make the games they produce truly English, Rio Grande Games translates all components into English: box, board, cards, rules, etc. They select games for their great mechanisms and for the high quality of their components. Rio Grande games, like the German originals, use wood and Plexiglas for many of the pieces, have gutterless boards that lie flat, and use linen paper to wrap the boards and boxes. To keep the quality high and our costs down, the games are produced using the same printers as the Germans and, thus, the same quality components.
By working together with the German publishers, Rio Grande Games can bring these great family strategy games to the United States at reasonable prices and often at the same time they are released in Germany. This allows those who have been fans of these games to get English versions as quickly as they could get German version shipped across the ocean.
