In Colt Express, you play a “desperado”, who attacks a passenger train. Primarily a thrilling and fascinating game, Colt Expressalso offers an introduction to algorithmic programming. Players are required to code their path and actions through a 3D train, while simultaneously interpreting their opponents' plans.
No mercy, no possible alliance: between the cars, on the train’s roof, bullets come from everywhere. The out-laws are injured. The Marshall patrols the train, thwarts the plans of the bandits. He is an additional threat in this extraordinary project.
Who will becomethe best gunslinger? Who will get the greatest share of the loot?
Each character has his own personality but, at the end of the day, they all have the same goal: to get the biggest slice of the pie in robbing the passengers.
A game is played over in 5 rounds. In each round, there are 2 steps:
programming the next actions by placing card on the top of the common pile
performing those actions played during the first step.
One Event card is drawn at the beginning of each round. It shows the number of turns there will be during the first step as well as the way the cards are to be played.
The possible actions are:
Moving (from a car to the next one inside the train or up to 3 cars on the roof)
Robbing (taking the loot from the passengers)
Shooting (giving one of your bullet to an opponent, who stands in the next car inside the train, or within line of sight on the roof )
Punching (making an opponent move from your car to a next one and making him loose a loot)
Moving the Marshal. When he meets a bandit, the latter flees to the roof and receives a shot (bullet from the Marshall).
