From the rules: Players are prospectors searching for old in the Old West. They are based in a mining town, from where they venture out into the surrounding wild territory. When a player strikes it lucky, he stakes his claim and rushes back to the town to register it. A registered claim becomes a Mine and its owner collects gold nuggets every time he lands on it. He will try and carry his nuggets back to the Bank and on the way the other players challenge him and may rob him of his gold. The first player to get five nuggets to the Bank is the winner. From the box: Goldrush is a game for 2, 3 or 4 players and takes about one hour to play. The rules are simple to follow and luck and skill are well blended to make it enjoyable for each member of the family or children of different ages on their own. When you play Goldrush the fun starts from the from the first move. You re-live a time of high adventure when reckless men staked all they had on one lucky strike. Every game is different because you seldom strike gold in the same place twice. You will need to be clever as well as lucky to make your fortune but right to the final exciting showdown, every player has a chance to win.
