Description Edit | History

A game of early California, from the Spanish explorers to the Gold Rush.

Players take turns exploring and settling California, developing local industries. The game starts with the earliest explorers, like Cabrillo and de Anza. The early pioneers make a living shipping goods (like hides) overseas. Later on, California becomes settled enough to develop markets of its own.

Presidios help defend against danger and establish the governing power's control over the region. Missions convert the California Indians into Spanish settlements. El Camino Real is built, connecting the settlements of California together.

More Information Edit | History

The Golden Wilderness is a game of exploring and developing a new colony. It covers most of the modern state of California, from the sea to the Sierras, and from San Diego to Cape Mendocino. Events range from the Cabrillo expedition (1542) to the Transcontinental Railroad (1869).

Basic Gameplay

Players get people cards representing people coming to California. They can use these cards to build settlements. Settlements in different areas produce different goods. Each turn some sort of event happens: markets, immigrants, taxes, etc. If the event is a market for the right type of goods, you could earn some money. The game ends when the board is fully developed. The winner is the player with the most points, which are generally purchased during the game.
