Martin Wallace is one of the most renowned game authors of today - his new game 'Tinners' Trail' has an unusual theme that doesn't hint at an exciting game (or does anybody dream of being a tin surveyor who sells home-made pastries on the side?), but this couldn't be farther from the truth. The mechanics are much simpler than in Wallace`s other games (like 'Brass' or 'Pericles'), but this actually helps to make the game instantly accessible while players always have interesting decisions to make. Especially interesting is the innovative turn order mechanic that hasn't been seen in games yet. A great game!
