Summary: “This edition of Tinners’ Trail differs from the original 2008 version in several ways. The player count is now 1-5 instead of 3-4, and the resources on the board are now set up via tiles instead of die rolls to maintain variability while reducing the randomness. Dual-use cards are now an important part of the game, giving you information before an auction or an extra boost after an auction. The game includes two expansions, with the arsenic expansion introducing a new resource and the emigration expansion seeing miners travel overseas. With lead development and expansion designs by David Digby.”
