Wildcatters

Be part of the booming business of the 19th century oil industry!

This turbulent era was dominated by resourceful adventurers who dared to take great risks in their quest for oil. These Wildcatters have changed the course of history in their daring discoveries and achievements. Now it is your turn to follow in their footsteps and claim the leading role in the world of steam locomotives, iron oil tankers, and vast oil fields.

Over the course of the game, players represent oil barons operating around the globe to develop oil fields; bid for oil rights; and build rigs, oil tankers, trains, and refineries - all in the effort to deliver more oil than anyone else.

  • --Mar2014-- Intriguing, without being completely compelling. The balance between debt and scoring is strange: I'm not at all certain how it's "supposed" to work. I think I likely won't buy it - though I'm happy to play when it's available.
  • FUNAGAIN
  • (+) The theme fits well onto the Monopoly framework (-) Re-skin of Monopoly with an added layer of complexity that does not improve the gameplay to me, minimal interesting decisions to make, significant dependence on dice rolls, too long for what it is, skipped turns
