Pony Express Game
From the Publisher...
You’ve got your horse, your trusty gun and a brand new hat on your head – but above all you’ve got a pack of letters that need to reach Sacramento before all the other riders in the Pony Express!
From legendary author Bruno Faidutti and new rising star Antoine Bauza comes a crazy and new kind of racing game loaded with tons of fun that will have you using poker dice to race forward, play poker, take special actions and even physically shoot at your opponents!
Nothing will stop you on your quest for speed and victory, neither the Indians lying in wait, nor the pretty saloon girls who want to charm the gold from your pockets. You’re the best, the wildest, the quickest and the luckiest rider in the land… At least you think you are – but all the other riders feel the same, so watch your back and get moving! Be the first to grab gold from the mines, duel opponents in savage gunfights or beat them at the poker table, and use your brain, bluffing skills and equipment to clear the way to Sacramento and deliver your precious letters.
Whether you ride like the wind or eat dust on the trail, this game will be wild!
Pony Express is a rich yet simple and terribly fun game for all ages!
A Game board
5 poker dice
One dice cup
5 “cow boys” meeples
3 “indians” meeples
5 character cards
20 item cards
30 gold nuggets
In Pony Express your goal is to be the fastest rider from the West on the historical track going down from St Jospeh to Sacramento. It’s a race with dice but very very special dice with which you can bluff and even sometimes shoot at an opponent’s meeple…
The poker dice will allow you to define how many spaces you will move forward each turn, grab the gold from the mines, eventually escape from prison and even to physically shoot at your opponents in unavoidable duels!
Be the first one to reach Sacramento and hold on tight while distributing your letters there because the other riders will still try to reach you before the very end…
