I understand… believe me.

Toss this gem in your cart and treat yourself to a little Wallace Euro-goodness!!! You deserve it! ❤️

Lame excuses for virtually non-existent write-up 😬

I feel fairly confident that most everyone knows about this game… and given the number of new games I need to get onto the site and my limited time in NY due to that gig in The Bahamas… well… I am afraid I don’t have enough time to properly wax poetic about this OUTSTANDING new edition of the Martin Wallace game Tinner’s Trail!!! So sorry about that, everyone. 😬

I will at least provide links to the original Kickstarter so you can triple-verify the contents of this pledge level. 😅

The link is HERE. A link to the BGG page for is below in the grid per standard protocol… I haven’t gotten THAT lazy 😉

I promise to try and do better in the future… just juggling a lot right now. 🙏

New Edition of this classic by Martin Wallace!  Thank you, Alley Cat Games!!! 🥰

In Tinners’ Trail, set in 19th century Cornwall, you represent a mining conglomerate at the height of the tin and copper mining industry. You must buy plots of land across Cornwall in auctions and survey them for tin and copper, always managing your “work points” and money effectively.

Once you have a mine in place, it’s time to extract the ore and (ideally) make a profit, but the deeper your mine goes, the more expensive the process gets. To reduce the cost of mining, you can place developments, such as ports, train stations, and adits (drainage tunnels), but there’s only so many improvements to go around. Once you have made your money — trying to time the market to sell when prices are high — you can invest it in industries outside of Cornwall, which gains you victory points. The earlier you invest, the better the return. Can you outplay the competition and make the most money, or will you be left without two shillings to rub together?

This edition of Tinners’ Trail differs from the original 2008 version in several ways. The player count, for example, is now 1-5 instead of 3-4, and the resources on the board are now set up via tiles instead of die rolls to maintain variability while reducing the randomness. Dual-use cards are now an important part of the game, giving you information before an auction or an extra boost after an auction.

With lead development and expansion designs by David Digby
