Description

In TRAILS, players hike back and forth along the Trail, gathering resources, taking pictures, and encountering wildlife to gain bonuses. At Trailhead and Trail End, players can turn in resources to earn Badges and begin their journey back in the other direction.
As each player visits the Trail End, the Sun sets over the Trail, and as night falls, Trail sites grant more powerful actions. When the Sun leaves the Trail, the last round will occur and the player with the most points from collected badges, photos taken, and bird sightings wins the game!

Too complicated. My husband is creative, skilled and loves the National Parks. He feels it just isn’t worth the time. Sorry. The quality and components are very nice quality but not worth the time. Hoping I can return it.

Great game! Took a lot of reading to get all the rules but once you get started it’s easy to play. Would recommend for couples to play.

A quick, fun game of strategy. Plus, with the cold snowy weather, it's nice to have a game that gets us "Outdoors"!

Fun game! A little confusing the first time you play, but isn’t any game? Some helpful YouTube videos (the key master one especially) help make sense of instructions. Gets easier from there on out. We’ve played with 2 and 4 players and both are fun! Definitely recommend.

Painfully complicated

2 out of 5 stars
julie248 - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
I was so excited about this game and ready to love it, but after struggling through one game with learning the rules from scratch front the instructions, I am bewildered by all the reviews that said this was an easy to learn, fun game. It's incredibly complicated, the rules don't make total sense (there's one card that we could find no instructions about how it could get used/awarded...), the writing on the cards is tiny so you can't read them from across the table, and the strategic play aspects are pretty weak. (The strategy is just collecting the right combo of "resources" to buy the cards on offer by the time you get to the other end of the trail in 1-5 turns.) We started off the game with 6 people (the game only supports 2-4, so we were going to play in teams) and only 2 of us persevered to the point where we could even start playing after reading the rules. The best aspect of the game is the beautiful art on the cards. I'd be hard pressed to pick the worst aspect of it though--too many contenders.

Light fun game

5 out of 5 stars
Ian - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
This is a smaller and shorter version of Parks which is one of our absolute favorite games. Enjoy your hike through the days as you collect resources that can be used to buy badges and make sure to take plenty of pictures to get the coveted bird trophy! Easy enough to teach in 10 minutes but a game that will keep you coming back.

Beautifully designed game and really fun…. Once you understand the rules. The wording was confusing at first, but we found a video online that thoroughly explained it. Once we got the hang of it, it was really fun! Mix of competition and collective strategy.

This game is beautifully made, but very boring. You’re just moving back and forth across the same trail. It was anticlimactic. Disappointed.

I love this game! I also own the game Parks and enjoy that as well. I would say the games have a similar feel, both in artwork and game play mechanisms, but are different enough to own both. It is a simpler game than Parks and easier to learn.

This is a great game for experienced and inexperienced players alike. Great artwork. Gameplay is blended and nuanced between strategy, tactics and just plain fun. Give your kids a chance at an educational and mind-stretching game that isn't just moving plastic pieces around a square board. And, finally, what a price point for a game like this.

We bought this since we enjoy the Parks board game made by the same company. The gameplay is similar so it was quick to learn, but there are different objectives overall. We enjoyed playing this game and it’s small enough to pack on trips, so overall a good game for us.

I'm not normally a fan of small card and board games, preferring Catan and the like, but WOW is this game fun! The art is fantastic, pieces are made of wood and recyclable cardstock, and a donation goes to the National Park System every time you buy the game. I wish there was a single-player version like in Keymaster's other Parks game, but this is still a new favorite.

We love Parks, and so we were looking forward to playing Trails. Four of us sat down to our inauguration game, and unfortunately we ran out of badges before completing the game. We continued play, and ended up with only one remaining photo. We enjoyed the game up until the point that we ran out of badges. No fun to keep playing when really no option to keep getting badges as it really is pretty much over at that point. Each time we played with 3 players we had a few badges and photos remaining at the end, but if a couple of players get badges early on in the game that reduce the cost of future badges it would be possible to run out of badges during a 3 player game - less likely than during a 4 player game but still possible. So if you are looking for a 4 player game look for something else (unless they come out with and expansion pack that corrects this issue). For 2 or 3 players it is a nice game.
