We write of the year 1846. Gunslingers, lawmen, pioneers and whole families left their homes in the east and midwest to try their luck in the West. They loaded their covered wagons with all they could and headed west across steppes, deserts, and mountains. Many chose to settle in Oregon, where the farming and hunting was plentiful and they could stake out a bit of land for themselves.

35.99 The players have already reached Oregon and gaze upon the rich farmland below and the potential gold and coal reserves of the mountains. They build ports on the lakes and rivers, churches, warehouses, post offices, and train stations on the plains. And, of course, they must farm the rich land to grow the food necessary for the area to grow and thrive.

To win, a player must choose the right times to farm and the right times to build, for planning is necessary even here in the untamed wilderness of Oregon.

Oregon is essentially a card game. Each turn a player plays cards to place a building or a cowboy to score points. The choices you make when placing make this an interesting game.

When you play two landscape cards, the squares in the grid on the gameboard where these two cards 'intersect' is where you get to place your cowboy. get 3 cowboys together and you score 5 points. You can also play a landscape card and a building card to play the building anywhere along the row or the column of the landscape card. Placing buildings is a little trickier as any cowboys of all the players near it will score points.

This is reasonally simple, quick and also attractive to look at. The game play is thoughtful rather than brain-burning for the most part, but at the start there is a good deal more luck - it's harder to mitigate against drawing tiles that you don't want. The power of the Joker and extra-turn chits can be quite high if you can tap into them on a loop. There's not really anything new here, but what there is is a lot of fun.
