Gad's Hill 1874

Gads Hill 1874 - As an archaeologist in the Wild West

for 2 to 4 players, ages 10+

Author: Stephan Riedel                          Illustrations: Christan Opperer

The city Gads Hill was founded in 1872. It gained popularity through the first train robbery in Missouri committed by the James Younger gang. Today, there is hardly anything that reminds on Gads Hill. Just a sign at the place where the gang stopped the train gives evidence of the earlier existence of the city.

  • How did Gads Hill look like 140 years ago?

  • Where was the hotel located where the Pinkerton detectives spent the night?

  • Where had the Younger brothers been seen? Take your part on reconstructing the city.

The player who brings in most of the relevant information wins the game. 

Gads Hill is based on the concept of „Old Town“ that had been awarded several times*.
