Carson City - the card game
This neat game adapts the Wild West city-building of the original game to a card game format. Square cards show city buildings and surrounding terrain, which you use to build up your own city, carefully placing buildings to maximise your score. Well, trying to maximise your score, anyway.
Other cards are characters, who provide a special effects or bonus points. And the rest of the cards are the hands that players bid with. Key to the game is using your bid cards wisely to get the terrain and characters that will have the best effect for you. It's neat and not too taxing.
For 1-6 players, aged 12+, playing time 45 minutes: £17.00 (£14.17 without tax outside the EU)
