Event Description

Manage your herd, and navigate the opportunities and pitfalls of the Great Western Trail. New players are welcome, so long as they have at least read the rules OR attended the teaching Demo.

Preliminary Rounds

3 heats of 2 1/2 hours. 4-player games are preferred but we will use 3-player tables if necessary to allow all players to play.

The placement and the side (A/B) of the neutral buildings will be random.

Rules as in the box.

Base game only – no expansions or promos.


Special rule for this tournament:
First tie-breaker is leftover coins AFTER spending for game-end VPs
Second tie-breaker is reverse initial turn order.

Elimination Rounds

After three heats, we will invite the top 16-ranked players who show up to the Semi-final, leading to a 4-player Final.

In Semis and the Final we will bid VPs (to be deducted at game end) for initial turn order.
