Itera-Research together with AppDragon today are pleased to introduce Wild West Races 1.0 for iOS, their western-themed, horse race, strategic card game, which is played with unique playing cards. The goal of the game is to be the first to maneuver a cowboy and his horse over the prairies and across the finish line, implementing the moves on the playing cards. Cards include distance cards with the number of kilometers a horse may move and bonus cards that can hinder the progress of an opponent or counteract the impediments placed by an opponent. Players are given six cards, and they may keep wanted cards, put a card in play, or discard to obtain a new card. Players take turns putting cards in play in this overhead view, strategy card game. The first player's cowboy and horse to cross the finish line wins the game.
Players must employ strategy to win Wild West Races. Players choose and employ one of their 6 cards from a 114-card deck to move the cowboy across the playing field, earning points for each card played. Players must begin each race by playing the Whip Card. Distance Cards are used to move across the varied Wild West prairies, and if a player does not have any Distance Cards, they must discard until they draw one. Players may only move the number of kilometers that are remaining in the race. For example, in a 100-kilometer race, if a player's horse only has 4 kilometers left before the finish line, he or she may only play a Distance Card of 4 kilometers or less. Other Distance Cards must be discarded.
