Black gold … crude … we’re talking oil here.  Ben Baldanza presents a few simple variants for this 1999 Spiel das Jahre finalist.

This 1999 Spiel das Jahre finalist depicts the hectic days of the oil boom in 1920’s Texas.  The bits are gorgeous and the game is a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Ben Baldanza has offered the following simple variants:

1)  If someone cannot deliver oil because their train is not far enough advanced, everyone who could deliver the oil bids for the right to carry it.

2)  When the ‘move the opponents back’ option is on a card, the owner of the card does not move all opponents back that amount.  Rather, they can split that amount in any manner amongst their opponents.
