The Postal Service introduced The Great American Mail Race, a licensed board game, at the Gen Con Indy 2022 gaming conference in Indianapolis on Aug. 4.
The game allows players to race around a board that shows a map of the United States, using different methods — including the Pony Express, steamboats, hot air balloons and vehicles — to deliver mail and packages.
“The Great American Mail Race is a fun, interactive game that celebrates the Postal Service’s rich history and shows how we continue to deliver for America,” said Amity Kirby, the organization’s licensing manager.
The game, produced by Big Potato Games, is appropriate for ages 10 and up and requires two to four players.
The Great American Mail Race sells for $34.99 and is available exclusively at Target.com. All 1,800 Target locations across the nation will carry the game.
Earlier this year, USPS introduced two other licensed products: a stamps-themed version of the Monopoly board game and U.S. Stamps of the ’80s, a 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle.
