Recently I was contacted by a game designer in France, Olivier Warnier, who is currently working on a unique game that blends European gameplay mechanics with a Western theme. The game is called Western Town.
About the game
In Western Town players take the role of a Marshal in the expanding American West of the 1860s. Each Marshal attempts to develop the most prosperous town, a town which President Lincoln himself would be proud to visit. Players will each have their own board where they will build their western town.
The three main criteria for winning are the population of your town, the charm and attractiveness of you town and finaly the gold you will accumulate to give to the nation. The turns are regulated by the visits of President Lincoln who declares bit-by-bit the value of the three criteria. The value of these criteria can change every round so you need to adapt in order to win!
How to support this game
Being based in France, Olivier is unable to use kickstarter as a means to get support from U.S. gamers. Luckily there is a site that is the French equivalent called ulule.com. To help reduce the impact of delivery costs, Olivier has created a few pledge options; Export 2, Export 4, Export 6 and Export 10.
