Nightmare of the Golden Horseshoe is a 3 to 6 player cryptozoological alternate history adventure for ages 6 and up, and it takes about 30 minutes to play.

In Nightmare of the Golden Horseshoe (NOTGH) players take on the roles of the royal governor, prominent citizens, military, and townspeople as they collaboratively travel across the Appalachian mountains on an exploratory expedition in 1776. 

Each player participates in the planning of resources for the expedition, and then players take turns being the Caravan Leader, while simultaneously working together to survive nature, weather, and wild cryptid attacks throughout the expedition.

Reach the end of the adventure with at least 1 person and 1 horse left in your Caravan Resources. Will you survive the mountain’s hardships and its cryptid inhabitants, or will you be lost in history?
