Description Edit | History

Your aim is to hike TWO* of the treacherous mountain peaks of the Split River Valley, claim the pouches of lost gold, and be the first hiker to return to Base Camp (or be the Hiker with the best state-of-resources in a drawn finish).

You and your opponents all have the chance to hinder each other's progress by planting forest barriers around the mountains. You also have access to resources which will remove these trees (your axes and chainsaws), or enable you to fly over them (using your helicopter flights).

The hiker who best utilizes these resources, including their food supplies, will ultimately win the game.

Flash flooding, quicksand, snowfalls, broken bridges, landslides and avalanches are just some of the unpredictable hazards you may have to encounter along the way!

Our advice is "Be prepared". Plan your own moves in advance and try predicting moves to be made by other hikers. One false move or miscalculation will often mean the difference between your win or a loss!

Ages +10

39.95USD (29.95€) - shipping included to US Mainland States (for other US states and territories, Europe and other countries, shipping costs are calculated at checkout. Online payment available via PayPal, Moneybookers, Google Checkout, Amazon Payments, USPS Money orders, or Euro cheques)

  • Other game variants exist (i.e., players can decide before a game how many mountain peak treasures will constitute a win. We recommend TWO treasures as this equates to around 60 minutes of game-play for 3-4 players).

More Information Edit | History

EDIT: 4 Feb 2010.
Of the second batch of 400 games to USA over half have now been snapped up by lucky (and I hope content) customers. This 'edit' is to also inform all current and potential buyers that NO FURTHER EDITIONS of "Timber Tom and the race to the Lost Pouches of Gold" will take place - so first in first served to those wanting to be part of a unique small-run game. I will be concentrating my efforts on preparing the Rogue Bear and Dynamite & Boulders expansion to current clients by the end of the year. So watch this space and "à bientôt" as we say in France!
Marco Bing.
