Product Description

Abilene is an adventurer game set in the legendary "Wild West". As a Texas cattle baron you drive your enormous cattle herds hundreds of miles to Abilene. If you aren't satisfied with just your cattle, you can rustle your neighbor's cattle with the help of your cowboys. But watch out! If your cowboys are caught trespassing, there'll be a duel.

Even after you have brought a herd safely to Abilene, there can be still unpleasant surprises when you try to sell them, because some animals are stricken with a cattle epidemic. If this is discovered before the sale, it makes the price drop through the floor. So if you've got sick cows, keep quiet and hope nobody doubts the health of your animals!
