#Unboxing Great Western Trail, the award winning board game from Alexander Pfister

A look at what you get with the multiple award-winning board game Great Western Trail, first edition, published by Eggertspiele.


Become a rancher in 19th century America where you herd your cattle repeatedly from Texas to Kansas City with players upgrading, changing and evolving the various paths you can take round after round.


A look inside the box for the Eggertspiele edition of Great Western Trail:

Description from the publisher:

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.

If you cleverly manage your herd and navigate the opportunities and pitfalls of Great Western Trail, you surely will gain the most victory points and win the game.
