Colt Express is a board game of schemin’ and stealin’ for two to six bandits aboard a 3D steam train
You play as one of a group of ruthless bandits, dead set on grabbing as much loot and shooting as many bullets at your former companions as possible. Every round, you must determine what actions your bandit will take, whether you’re grabbing loot, firing bullets, punching another bandit, or running along the roof of the train car.

If you can predict what your opponents will do, you can respond to their actions and stay one step ahead, but if you’re knocked off-track, you’ll find your shots flying wide.

Only the richest bandit can claim victory on the Colt Express when the train pulls into the station!


The game consists of five rounds, and each round is has two phases
At the beginning of a game of Colt Express, each player’s bandit is situated at the rear of the train. Ahead of you lies the entire train, constructed from three-dimensional cardboard train cars. In each train car, there lies a certain quantity of treasure for you to seize—weighty purses of gold and coins, priceless jewels from the passenger’s jewellery, and a strongbox in the train’s locomotive that’s guarded by the marshal himself. At the beginning of each round, a Round card is revealed, which determines how many turns there will be in this round.


Phase One - Schemin’
You and your fellow bandits each draw six Action cards and take turns playing these cards to determine the actions your bandits will perform and the order in which they perform them. For instance, if you want to first advance to the next train car and then hold up a passenger for some valuable jewels, you would play the Move Action card from your hand on the first turn, then play the Robbery Action card from your hand for the second turn. In between your two Action cards, however, each of the other players will have the chance to play their own Action cards, and any one of these could significantly disrupt your plans.


Phase Two - Stealin’
The action cards are carried out in the order they were played, with a player’s best laid plans possibly not panning out due to mistakes and oversights! After every player has had the chance to play an Action card for each of the turns indicated on the Round card, it’s time to determine the outcomes of the choices you made! The first player takes the stack of Action cards that the players created during the Schemin’ phase and turns it over. Then, the Action cards are revealed one by one, starting with the top card, which allows players to perform their actions in the order they were originally played.


There are six distinct actions that each player may execute
Two of these Action cards allow you to change your position in the train to find better loot or line up a shot against another bandit.

The Run Action card allows you to change position horizontally—moving one car forward or backward if you’re on the trains interior or moving up to three train cars if you’re running across the roof.

The Climb Action card, on the other hand, lets you change floors in the train, either moving from the roof to the train car’s interior or vice versa.


Robbery Action Card
The Robbery Action card allows you to choose one of the loot tokens currently in your space and add it to your collection of loot. At the end of the game, all of the loot tokens that you have collected are counted towards your final score. Just because you’ve picked up a loot token doesn’t mean it’s safe.


Punch Action Card
If you play the Punch Action card, you may target a bandit in the same space as you, choose one of his or her loot tokens, and place it on the floor of your current space. Then, you can move the targeted bandit forward or backward one train car as your powerful blow knocks your opponent aside.


Almost inevitably in a robbery of this scale, bullets quickly begin to fly
By choosing the Fire Action card, you may shoot another bandit, giving your target one of your Bullet cards that they must add to their Action deck. When Bullet cards are drawn, they are discarded without effect, so they serve a valuable role in reducing your target’s options. For example, if you draw two Bullet cards and four Action cards when you refill your hand at the beginning of a round, you must discard the two Bullet cards, leaving you with only four possible Action cards at your disposal! There’s also a more lucrative motivation to fire your gun, beyond simply hurting your opponents. At the end of the game, the player who has fired the most bullets receives the Gunslinger award—which comes with a $1,000 bonus to be added to your score.

Draw the attention of the Marshall with the Marshall Action Card

I Hear A Train A’Coming
Enhance Your Games of Colt Express with a carefully chosen playlist of Western songs and music that can be found on Spotify.


The Marshal is tasked with protecting the passengers and the company strongbox, and he’s not afraid to use his revolver to defend the train. The Marshal Action card allows you to move the Marshal one train car forward or backward. Any bandits in the same car as the Marshal must escape to the roof of the train, and they also take one of the Marshal’s Bullet cards to shuffle into their decks!


Grab your six-shooter and climb aboard the Colt Express!
Description
Product Description
In Colt Express, you play a “desperado”, who attacks a passenger train. 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 become the best gunslinger? Who will get the greatest part 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.

I would be interested to hear a first hand review too. Personally I never have but probably worth a punt at this price. I have watched a YouTube video and read some reviews. Sounds best with as close to max number of players as possible.
I own this game, and while it can be fun at times, it needs to the right group of players playing it.

Its a card draft game, where you have to try and guess what other people are going to do, and anticpate things, as you do not get to see what everyone is doing until you have played all of your cards/turns.

We used to play it a lot, but it got a bit stale for us, so i bought the stagecoach expansion, and that didnt really improve it much.

The game has a clever 2 player variant, which me and my son have played a fair bit, but unless you have the cash lying about, i would maybe stay away from this, there are a lot of other games out there which are better.

This of course is all my opinion, you will get some people who love this game to bits, and if anyone is close to Liverpool, i would sell you my copy with the expansion for slightly more than the price listed above(bear in mind, it has the expansion).

Have fun and keep posting boardgame deals :-)

I own it and the first 2 expansions. It's a light hearted game that's lots of fun. An experienced player should always do reasonably well but there is a reasonable element of luck to it as well. I'm a heavy euro player mainly but this game is definitely one I'd pull out if I was playing with non euro gamers. In my opinion it's definitely worth the money!

OK thanks, I'm a medium weight Euro gamer at heart but play with a few non-euros fairly regularly so might suggest this to them. Thanks

Its definitely a fun game over a couple of beers, light hearted, funny moments and easy to explain rules (they are pretty thematic such as you can't shoot someone in same carriage as they'd knock the gun away or shooting on the roof has unlimited range but in a carriage is only the next carriage as harder to aim). Also its a novelty playing on a 3D board
