Trailblazer: the Arizona Trail preview


👍 Overall 4/5
Wow! Arizona Trail was an absolute delight to play, especially as a worker placement fan! A balanced mix of mechanics from set collection to polyomino tiles that makes for a very engaging and visual games session!

📖 Rules 4/5
For a prototype rulebook it was ok, with a bit of reflow it will be easy to learn and teach! Good enough to get playing quickly.

🤩Game Experience 4/5
We all had a fun and engaging game, with little down time. Nicely balanced worker placement spots and shifting cards was nicely set for a close game. Score the difference between your points (clockwise scoring) and your grit (anticlockwise scoring), it’s all about tradeoffs.l

🎲Art & Components 4/5

Just check out the photos! Gorgeous Andrew Bosley artwork set the scene for your trek through the Arizona trail!
Simply Beautiful.

🔁Replayability 3/5
Lots of replayability with this one with variable setup, and lots of fauna, flora and location cards will keep things interesting.

Final thoughts

A worthy addition to any games collection!
