“Gold, Gold, Gold – A Ton of Gold”-the Seattle headline heard round the world announcing the discovery of great stores of gold in the Klondike. This was the beginning of an exodus of would-be prospectors dreaming of a better life; a chance to escape the toil caused by the financial recessions and bank failures of the 1890s. Gold Rush Hysteria was pulsing through the veins of the country and tens of thousands were willing to risk it all for the chance to “have it all.”

Lost Valley is a game about the Klondike stampede that rushed North. It’s about the grueling journey: traversing Steep Mountain passes with heavy loads, through severe weather, and ever-dwindling resources.

During the course of the game, players must explore the ever expanding lost valley, in hopes of discovering a gold vein in a mountain, a virgin forest to provide timber or a fishing spot along the river to provide food. The map will be different each time you play, so you never know what lurks around the corner.

As you set out from the outfitters with everything you own strapped to your back, you must balance carefully the resources that you need. Of course you will need tools, dynamite and timber to extract mountain gold, but you’ll need to make sure you have room for food, rifles and fishing poles to help you survive in the wilderness.

Grab your horse, your pack, and your whiskey because “The Gold Fever is Raging” in the Yukon. Hordes will go, many will turn back or die, but some will achieve their wildest dreams.

Enter Now!

Okay, I've read the rulebook, and without wanting to give anything away, I'll simply say that I'm not able to answer the above question as written; I believe it needs revision. Could someone please review this?

(And, no, the issue isn't that the provided rulebook doesn't mention any "General Store"—I made what I think is a credible substitute. )

Thanks in advance!

I see the same problem. I suppose though that you could read it to mean that any of several choices would be correct responses.

Glad it's not just me. I hope it gets reviewed before too many more people participate.
Spoiler (click to reveal)
If the question receives the revision that I think it should get, then it won't work to accept as correct any of several. Plus, depending on how the contest system has been coded, it may not be possible to accept multiple answers.

Even if a question or two is confusing, I still like these contests.

Still, care should be done while making the questions.

You're definitely not the only one. Despite scouring the rule book I still only got 2 questions right (probably the kickstarter ones). I'm not certain if it's the questions, the rule book, or their relationship, but there is something strange here.

Question 1 is missing a NOT should read like this:

4 out of 5, but I had to guess what a few of the questions were actually asking.

Good luck everyone!

5 out of 5. The first question should definitely be which item CANNOT be bought.

I'm backing this game and have no intention of backing out. That said, this contest gave me pause. There are problems that go beyond the missing "not" in question one.

This was the first time I read the rules in their entirety. Like you said, not sure if it's the contest or the rulebook, but some things aren't clear. Hope they fix/edit/tighten up whatever is wrong before publication!

Then again, a well written rulebook is the exception in this hobby. shake

The question about which actions generate food also seemed impossible to answer, given what the rulebook says.

I agree there is an issue with the question. I only got two correct so I'm sure my winning record of 0-41 will stand.

Hey everyone, just wanted to thank everyone for participating in th contest.

I also wanted to assuage any fears relating to the rulebook. We are in the process of cleaning it up a bit. No rule changes, but the existing rulebook has some odd translation choices and is a bit overly streamlined where it should be a bit more explanatory.

Also, question 1 should read cannot. Chad should be updating that this morning.

As a pointer for things that are throwing people off. The correct answer for #2 is an item that doesn't appear in the game at all. Th correct answer for th food question is also an action that isn't in the game.

Only 4/5. Hoping to win, though, 71st time's got to be the charm!

Right?

That would be the one I missed, then. I was completely confused as there were multiple "correct" answers to the way it was phrased before. Oh well.

No wonder I went 2/5

It's all good! Good luck to all the participants!
