A short tactical game about the first oil rush in Texas. In the basic game players roll dice to determine a position on the game board where they can then place either one of their own oil drill towers or a neutral oil marker. In phase 2 players decide in which order the drill towers score points for adjacent oil markers (which are removed from the board after scoring). The player with the most points wins the game.
The game will include at least two variants (and a second game board) to add more complexity. In addition, several fan rules will be published on the homepage www.schwarzesgold.com
Schwarzes Gold is the winning title of the author's game competition 2008/2009 by www.spielmaterial.de. The task of the competition was to create a new game based on the game pieces of Giganten after those were bought in large quantities by www.spielmaterial.de (an online shop for game components).
