You are rival cattlemen in 19th century America, herding cattle in a circular trail from Texas to Kansas City. Your cattle are then shipped by train, earning 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 mastering 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. It might also 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.
The winner is the player who manages their herd best and exhibits good timing in mastering the opportunities and pitfalls of the Great Western Trail.
Great Western Trail is designed by the renowned game designer, Alexander Pfister, and has been designated in the Stronghold Games The Great Designer Series – #7. Mr. Pfister has won several game awards for his recent designs of Mombassa and Isle of Skye.

Stronghold Games has a very limited number of Merchant of Venus *SIGNED* by the designer of the great game himself, Richard Hamblen!
Mr. Hamblen appeared at the WBC in August 2013, his first convention appearance in 30 years, so the opportunity to get a SIGNED COPY of MERCHANT OF VENUS is not likely to happen again!
The galaxy is bursting with opportunities for savvy space traders to exploit, and the race to profit blasts off in Merchant of Venus. Discover new alien cultures and learn where you can get rich selling their goods in this board game of interstellar trade and exploration for 1-4 players. From your First Contact with alien cultures to the establishment of trade routes and spaceports, your quest for cash demands you keep on the move. Successful traders will quickly locate fast and reliable trade routes, timing their purchases and sales with the interest in the market.
Space traders, get your ships ready for launch because it’s time to engage in some wild entrepreneurship!
Featuring a double-sided board, Merchant of Venus offers rules for both Richard Hamblen”s classic game and Rob Kouba”s reimagined version.
Merchant of Venus uses many elements which come together to form a very interesting game. Players take on the roles of space traders who move their ships through interconnected systems discovering new alien worlds to trade with.
As players start to make money delivering commodities in a unique supply-and-demand system, their earnings can be used to purchase better ships and equipment (shields, lasers, engines, etc…) and construct their own spaceports (which speed up trading) and factories (which create better commodities).
Variations included in the rulebook allow for interplayer combat. The player who first acquires enough total value ($1000, $2000, $3000, $4000) in cash and port/factory deeds takes the day.
