The year is 1932. The five day work week has begun. The Prohibition is in full swing. All in all, it is a good year -- for moonshiners that is. These Tennessee Mountains are full of moonshiners who want to earn some easy moolah and are waiting for you to transport their moonshine to the speakeasy. Now all you have to do is brave the dangers and make it to the speakeasy safely. However, you are not alone. Although others might not be as brave as you are, some might be smarter. You have to get more moonshine than they do and get back safely before the coppers get you.
Moonshine Run is a game about guts, a little planning, and luck. Each player is racing down the mountain to deliver the moonshine to their customers. Along the way, they can pick up more moonshine and different Items that can help them out. However, there are also hazards on the mountain that could cause the player to lose their turn and any moonshine they have collected.
