About the game:

Shoulda been a cowboy? Well, if you never quite got to live your dreams of herding cattle across the plains, we've got you covered. Give Great Western Trail a go!

Great Western Trail Second Edition marks the return of Alexander Pfister’s epic strategy masterpiece with new cool features and new components for an even greater journey! Buy the most valuable cows to deliver the best cattle to Kansas City’s train station. From there, bring them to New York to earn money and points to become the best rancher!

Hire cowboys, builders and engineers to get closer to your goal. Find cows which increase your cattle count (well duh), construct buildings to get more actions, and ride your train to reach the farthest cities. With an abundance of strategies, plan all your actions wisely and make the most out of every decision to find the trail to victory!

We have a rule of thumb here that you know a game is good when it gets a new edition. The best part is, they usually take the feedback from game enthusiasts and make the second edition better. Here, they've added a solo-player mode and tweaked some of the game play to make it a bit more balanced. We think you'll love this refreshed edition of a classic Euro.

Why We Chose this Game for Board’s Edge:
  • We have a rule of thumb here that you know a game is good when it gets a new edition. Camel Up is another great example.
  • You asked, we listened! This was a game our amazing customers asked us to start carrying.
  • I shoulda been a cowboy, but alas, this game is as close as I'll get to herding them cattle from Texas to Kansas City!
  • We love Alexander Pfister games like Maracaibo and CloudAge too!
