On the 4th day of gaming my true love sent to me…

4 Black Angus Cattle…

Great Western Trail is all about herding and selling cattle in the Ol’ West.  Players will collect cattle and either “sell” them to different buildings on their way to Kansas City or “sell” them to various cities located along the railroad once they get to Kansas City.  When you get to Kansas City you need variety, different heifers only count as the points on the card.  In the game we played, I managed to get me a couple Black Angus and sold them to a building on the trails.  It was a good way for me to get some quick cash since the pair would not be optimal at Kansas City.  There are tons of decisions to make in this design by one of my up and coming favorite designers,  Alexander Pfister.  Stronghold games has a great game here that makes buying and selling cattle way more fun than it should be.
