Rental - Catan - Histories - Settlers of America: Trails to Rails
The 19th Century has arrived and America is expanding west. Wagon trains filled with settlers seeking new lives and opportunities strike out to tame the wild land of the west.
As more and more settlers head west, new cities pop up like mushrooms. Due to the distances between them, these new cities quickly come to rely on new railroads for the transport of vital goods. Trails become rails and create great wealth. Soon, a complex railroad network develops, and steam belching iron horses connect the thriving cities.
Experience the pioneer days of the Wild West! Send your settlers westward to found cities and to develop the expanding railroad network. If you are the first to use your trains to deliver 8 goods to your opponents' cities (or 10 goods in a 3-player game), you win the game and fulfill your manifest destiny as the era's greatest pioneer.
Settlers of America "Trails to Rails" utilizes the simple, fun Catan hex-tile grid to map the young United States. Collect and trade resources in order to purchase and move settlers, build cities, lay rails, and acquire and move trains. Create rail links to acquire gold, which lets you buy resources and use opponents' rails. Use trains to distribute goods to rival cities. But, as your settlers populate the West, they deplete the resources of the East. Still, your options always abound!
