Great Western Trail was one of the biggest hits of Essen 2016. And finally an expansion for the game has been announced:
Great Western Trail: Rails to the North introduces a new railway system for players to compete on as they grow their cow herding businesses.
With this expansion, players deliver their herds to northeast United States with stops in Chicago, Detroit, and New York City, amongst other cities, in an effort to become the most successful cow rancher this side of the Mississippi. Be advised that business is much more difficult on this rail, so players will want to take advantage of friendly hospitality by establishing branchlets and helping form towns. In addition to the new railway system, players will also discover new station master tiles, private buildings, and an expanded player board to offer more strategic depth in their decision making.
Rails to the North is expected to get released in June and is now available to pre-order. Unfortunately so far only as the German edition. But like the base game, the components have no text on them, so only the rulebook will be in German.
