2 player micro-game by Button Shy Games (also has a solo "Lone Cowboy" expansion) in which you are building your own Western boomtown. Includes card drafting - where cards are laid out in a circle - and the active player has a choice: they can choose to pick the next card along the circle (kind of like in Patchwork) or they can pick any other card they would like along the circle, but whatever cards they skip, they are giving ALL of those cards to their opponent. You use the cards which you drafted and place them next to each other in order to lay out a boomtown. There are different categories to score. You score for placing the largest areas of each of the various categories. In addition, there are different objective scoring cards you can choose to follow which give players another way of scoring points. Some examples of these objective scoring cards are:
1) "The Herd: 2 points per Cow in your largest Cow group."
2) "Fortified: 7 points per group of 4 corner-to-corner Forts. A Fort can apply to more than one fortified group."
3) "Cool Water: 3 points per Wagon adjacent to or on your largest Water group (if multiple largest, you choose which group)."

This game seems right up Richard (and Jen)'s alley! City building, card drafting, scoring objectives.
I would love to see a runthrough of this game!
