Challenge Your Strategy and Your Character
Are you looking for a game that will evaluate not only your strategy but also your character? Settlers of America Trails to Rails, the latest of the Catan History series, will put to the test both your ability to outmaneuver your opponents, and your capacity to do so with grace. As in all Catan games, Settlers of America Trails to Rails' key ingredient is constant player interaction, which means virtually no down time and lots of opportunity for personality quirks to be exposed.

Race to Deliver the Most Goods
Settlers of America Trails to Rails combines the award-winning strategy of the Catan series with the remarkable history of American westward expansion. Players collect and trade resources in order to build settlements, acquire locomotives and railroad routes, then race with other players to deliver the most goods.

Twists and Turns Consistent with the 19th Century
Players start with cities east of the Mississippi River and instead of knights and monopolies, there are cattle drives, cavalry, and scouts, and the abundant resources of the west require players to travel west in order to expand. There are a number of twists and turns with Settlers of America involving the earning of gold, the devaluation of land, and the dwindling of resources as the population grows, all in keeping with life in the 19th century.

Breathe Life into American History
Settlers of America's beautiful one-piece game board map of the United States utilizes the familiar Catan hex-tile grid system and includes an almanac that puts many of the game's components and themes into historical context. This simulation of America's westward expansion will breathe new life into any American history program and will wean your family away from tedious games of chance to brain-stretching games of strategy.
