This turbulent era was dominated by resourceful adventurers who dared to take great risks in their quest for oil. These Wildcatters have changed the course of history with their daring discoveries and achievements. Now it is your turn to follow in their footsteps and claim the leading role in the world of steam locomotives, iron oil tankers, and vast oil fields. Over the course of the game, players represent oil barons operating around the globe to develop oil fields; bid for oil rights; and build rigs, oil tankers, trains, and refineries — all in an effort to deliver more oil than anyone else.

“Wildcatters”, (Capstone games), by designers Rolf Sagel, and André Spil brings together an interesting game where the infrastructure you are building can also be used by other players (for a price of course). It also follows that you will sometimes have to gain by using your opponent’s infrastructure. It has the tactical limitation of allowing you to play in one of eight locations from an open selection of area cards. That will often force players to work together to actually deliver oil, (using trains, refineries, and tankers possibly owned by another player), but the oil tycoon who delivers the most oil will win in the end!
