Colt Express, designed by Christophe Raimbault, is a programmed movement game where the coolest feature is not the fun artwork or awesome cowboy meeples. The game comes with a 3-dimensional train where cowboys get to punch, shoot, and steal from each while avoiding the marshall. In the game, players will play action cards either face-up or face-down depending on the round card. Players gather the cards together and resolve the action one card at a time. Players can try to plan carefully, but those face-down cards provide enough chaos to waylay the best of plans.

Our discussion focused on Christophe's inspiration for the a game about the American West and his feelings about winning the Spiel des Jahres this year. We also had to ask all about the amazing 3-dimensional train. Christophe enlightened us as to what players can expect in future expansions of the game (stagecoaches, whiskey, the marshall, etc).
