Oregon Board Game Review

Game Overview

Oregon is a western-based topic game. We’re back in year 1846 when entire families left their countries and went to west looking for a fresh start. Regardless of its western subject, in Oregon you will discover no viciousness by any means. No gunfights, no cowhands and no sheriffs. You need to manage different parts in harmony, relying on your arranging and contributing capacities.

The game board is a guide of Oregon, partitioned in five segments and five columns. In the two segments and columns we locate similar five pictures (cart, buffalo, pioneer, falcon, open air fire). The objective of every player is to put structures and ranchers astutely on the board to get the most extreme number of focuses. Each player begins with a hand of 4 cards (3 scene cards and 1 structure card), 14 ranchers of his tone (the fifteenth is put on the scoring track), two tokens (additional turn and joker) and a beginning tile. On a player’s turn, he should put at any rate one of his ranchers or construct one structure on the board. To put a rancher, one should play two of his scene cards and spot the rancher on a vacant space (aside from water spaces) situated on the intersection of the line and the section relating to the images portrayed on the cards (the player chooses which card speaks to the line and which the segment). On the off chance that he chooses to put a structure, he should play a scene card and a structure card. The scene card decides the line or section on which the structure can be places and the structure card, the kind of building. He at that point takes a relating building tile from the inventory stack and places it on any vacant space of the section or the line controlled by the scene card. Obviously any structure can’t be set anyplace on the guide yet just on a space with the comparing foundation tone. So the harbor, for instance, should be put nearby a water space and the mines (gold or coal) may just be set on a mountain space. By putting ranchers and structures, the players acquire focuses. On the off chance that they place ranchers they procure focuses for each building their rancher is nearby (corner to corner does check) and he additionally takes 5 focuses in the event that he figures out how to make a gathering of 3 contiguous ranchers (for this situation askew doesn’t tally). In the event that they place structures, they procure focuses for every rancher the structure is nearby ( JOKER GAMING ‘ ranchers additionally acquire focuses). Subsequent to playing a card game a player can choose whether he will utilize his additional turn token (on the off chance that it is in its dynamic side), or will end his turn. In the event that his turn closes he should reestablish his hand to 4 cards (given that he will have at any rate one structure and one scene card available). At that point it’s the following player’s turn.

The game finishes when all ranchers of a player’s tone are set on the board or various structure stacks is depleted (contingent upon the quantity of players, from 2 to 4). The last round is played as far as possible, until all players have had similar number of turns.

Initial introduction

Oregon is a quick, simple to learn game yet requests great arranging and a ton of consideration while playing. You should be entirely adaptable in your system, on the grounds that there are times in the game you may have to transform it to get the most extreme bit of leeway of the manner in which structures and ranchers are set on the load up. You likewise should be consistently prepared to snatch openings for yourself and deny occasions to rivals.


I feel that Hans Im Gluck, as a distributer, ensures a decent level in segments quality. What’s more, Oregon isn’t an exemption. Great quality box, very much drawn board, decent cards (the two structures and scenes), building tiles, coal and gold tiles, 60 wooden meeples in 4 tones (15 each) and 8 major tokens (additional turn and jokers). 7/10

Ongoing interaction

Oregon joins positively some various mechanics. Tile position, laborer arrangement, territory control, card drafting and why not hand the executives since you can choose whether you can utilize a few cards in your grasp in this turn or save them for the following round. It’s simultaneously simple and convoluted and in each round you need to settle on choices upon the best activities. 8/10

Expectation to absorb information

Simple to learn. The rulebook is elegantly composed and a medium experienced gamer will think that its simple to begin with the game. Can be played whenever and by any gathering as a result of its short-playing time (45′- 60′) and medium weight. 8/10


Well ok…it’s an eurogame. So the subject isn’t its preferred position. West in this game isn’t what you have consistently envisioned. Then again, the guide works really hard in reminding you the subject thus do the pictures on the cards or the meeples with their hovels. You don’t feel like you’re in genuine Oregon however there are times you can feel like a rancher. Without a firearm obviously… 6/10


No game is the equivalent. I’ve played more than 50 games up to this point either with a gathering of companions or in the online form. There are various activities in each game and various difficulties. 8/10


Each game that is very simple yet requests a ton of vital choices and challenges and is being played inside an hour probably, appears to be enjoyable to me… 7/10
