The men who built the railways arrived with good boots and got their shovels on credit; they were issued tickets, in payment for their work, which could be used at the Tommy Shop or (more likely) on beer! As a ganger, or foreman, you are responsible for your own team of navvies as they journey through Mid and North Wales: digging the track beds, laying the rails, and sometimes helping a passenger or two along their way. Foothills allows you to participate in grand-scale railway construction while paying attention to the small details; manage your navvies' work carefully, and you should be able to allow them go to the pub after work. Foothills is a intriguing and tactical 2 player card game from new designer Ben Bateson and the designer of Snowdonia, Tony Boydell. Using your five action cards cleverly, remove rubble, collect resources, build track and stations, and use the action spaces you unlock, all the while collecting more victory points than your opponent. In the end, the player with the majority victory points wins!
