"Gold Town tm Game Components"


Gold Towntm comes with a 40-page PDF rule book (28 pages of actual rules and tables), a variety of game cards, playing pieces, player roster cards, character cards, and much more. Many of these components are optional - players do not have to use everything that is provided within the game: They get to choose what they want to use with their game. The game components are intended to be inclusive and to provide players with everything they might require to play the game the way they want to play. All game components are in PDF and are included within the game. A number of the components can easily, and effectively, be printed in grayscale. Below is a listing of the PDF component files that are included in Gold Towntm :
