Sunday Meetup – Great Western Trail
America in the 19th century: You are a rancher and repeatedly herd your cattle from Texas to Kansas City, where you send them off by train. This earns you money and victory points. Needless to say, each time you arrive in Kansas City, you want to have your most valuable cattle in tow. However, the “Great Western Trail” not only requires that you keep your herd in good shape, but also that you wisely use the various buildings along the trail. Also, it might be a good idea to hire capable staff: cowboys to improve your herd, craftsmen to build your very own buildings, or engineers for the important railroad line.

The store has a copy of the game. If you have a copy and would like to bring it please post in the comments so I can open the event to additional players.
If you have not played this game before, I highly recommend taking the time to watch a playthrough. Seeing the game played is one of the best ways to understand how the mechanics work together. Alternatively, you can watch the instructional video or read the rule book to learn how the games are played. I can answer questions but do not recommend waiting till after the event starts to learn how to play.
This event is being hosted in coordination with Josh’s open gaming event on the San Diego Boardgames Group. If you would prefer to play a different game please join Josh’s event.
