America in the 19th century: You are a rancher and repeatedly herd your cattle from Texas to Kansas City, where you send them off by train. This earns 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 "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. Also, it might 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.

If you cleverly manage your herd and navigate the opportunities and pitfalls of Great Western Trail, you surely will gain the most victory points and win the game.

    Alexander Pfister ne s'est manifestement pas endormi sur ses lauriers après l'excellent Mombasa, jeu de l'année 2016 sur BdmL, Deutscher Spiele Preis et International Gamers Award. Great Western Trail est un jeu tout aussi atypique et réussi, dont on découvre la richesse au fil des parties.

    Malgré une interaction assez légère, Great Western Trail est une bombe ludique comme il nous arrive que trop rarement de rencontrer.  Les joueurs sont confrontés à des choix difficiles tout au long de la partie.  Ils devront faire des sacrifices car le peu d’argent qu’ils gagneront devra être dépensé à bon escient.  Ils devront avoir une vision stratégique et devront se construire une stratégie tout au fil de la partie.  Ces stratégies sont très subtiles tant elles jouent sur de nombreux éléments.  Ils devront également gérer une multitude de facteur qui rendent le jeu complexe et profond.  Et malgré tout ça, le jeu tourne à merveille.  Il est assez long et remplira toute votre soirée mais on ne subit jamais le jeu et on n’attend jamais très longtemps.  On est donc plongé à 100% dans Great Western Trail et on ne voit pas le temps passer.  La mise en place du jeu permet de nombreuses configurations différentes et offre une durée de vie impressionnante au jeu.  C’est bien simple, même après une partie qui nous a menés à terminer aux petites heures, on avait envie d’en refaire une directement.  Il y a bien longtemps que jouer aux cowboys et aux indiens n’avait pas été aussi passionnant.

    Good things always come in threes!

    After a wonderful Mombasa and a quite enjoyable Isle of Skye, I have to admit that I was more than looking forward to discovering Great Western Trail, the new design from Alexander Pfister.

    And disappointed I was not. The game is phenomenal. This is a hand-managment game with a hint of deck-building. Pfister shows again that he is able to mix and match game mechanisms and master the mix.

    In Great Western Trail, you will take the role of cowboys, hurdling their cows along the trail up to Kansas City. It is going to be up to you to decide how far and how fast you go along that trail. You can be quick and be the first in Kansas city, or you can take your time and enjoy each step of the way. Will you avoid hazardous ways or will you go through the native's camps?
    Each stop along the road will offer you some deckbuilding opportunity. Sell a cow for profit, and get a new one in your hand of cards? Buy a brand new one to improve your herd?

    With multiple paths to win the game, Great Western Trail is an amazing game in the same line as Mombasa.

    Très bon jeu d'un auteur qui a déjà plusieurs gros succès à son actif. Difficulté similaire à Mombasa.

    Excellent jeu mêlant deck-building, pose de tuiles et gestion de main/collection. Pfiester devient un auteur incontournable !
