In Old West Empresario, players must attract settlers to their land through careful dice drafting and tile placement. Build up your settlement and become an honorable homesteader in this development game!

For those who aren't aware, Empresarios were people who were granted the right to own land if they encouraged new settlers to live there, taking responsibility for their welfare. Commonly used by both Spain and Mexico, Empresarios primarily settled in Texas (however how 'Old West' that is, we'll leave up to the individual gamer to decide).

Regardless of historical pedantry, this looks like an interesting placement game with a fun theme. There's no release date as of yet, but the latest information suggests late 2018/early 2019 as an estimate.

Do you mind a game isn't historically accurate? We want to hear what you think!
