"I don't hate my fellow man, even when he's tiresome and surly and tries to cheat at poker. I figure that's just a human material, and him that finds in it cause for anger and dismay is just a fool for expecting better."
For sure, with 30 nominations worldwide and more than 10 awards, the Great Western Trail is a big deal. This is no dog that won't hunt.
Wanna go for a ride?
As a Texan rancher in the 19th century, you regularly drive your cattle to Kansas City, from where you ship them across the United States. Take care of your cattle, surround yourself with a competent team, optimize your route while avoiding the many traps that litter this great transhumance and you will become the best rancher in the West.
GREAT WESTERN TRAIL will please experienced players. Numerous strategies served by subtle mechanics make each action decisive and promise a different experience with each new game.
