Get Ready to Tend to Your Sheep in Great Western Trail: New Zealand

by W. Eric Martin

In February 2021, Plan B Games, which owns the eggertspiele brand, announced plans for a new edition of Alexander Pfister‘s Great Western Trail, as well as plans for two spin-off titles that would use elements of the original game — deck-building and a rondel — in novel ways in new settings.

The publisher has now shared a smidge of detail about the third title in this trilogy: Great Western Trail: New Zealand, which will debut in 2023, with the official announcement coming in March 2023.

Here’s the opening pitch for this title:

In Great Western Trail: New Zealand, you are a runholder — that is, the owner of a sheep station — on the South Island of New Zealand at the end of the 19th century. Recent years have seen your family farm prosper by diversifying your breeds of sheep and by increasing the value of your wool.

With the dawn of the new century, new challenges have arisen. You must acquire new and improved breeds of sheep to ensure the prosperity of your family business and the laborers who work for you.
